Jessica Simpson is NOT “begging” Diana Ross to make her a “movie superstar,” despite a ridiculous report. Gossip Cop can bust the story.

According to OK!, Simpson is “ready for a comeback in a major way,” but “recording an album isn’t enough for the singer.” She also allegedly “wants to take over Hollywood.” And she’s supposedly seeking Ross’ help to make her a “silver screen superstar.”

Bizarrely, though, after initially claiming Simpson wanted Ross to aid her with films, OK! quotes a so-called “family insider” talking about an entirely different medium. “As far as Jess is concerned, Diana’s responsible for some of the most iconic music of all time,” says the alleged source. “She’s desperate to do something with Diana, even ask her to write her a song if she’s not interested in a direct collaboration.”

Once it gets beyond those consistency issues, the magazine closes by suggesting Simpson seeking out Ross could make waves with Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross. “Jessica won’t let anyone get in the way of her ambitions,” adds the outlet’s tipster. “She says she’d have never got to where she was if she didn’t step on a few toes on the way.”

And apparently OK! is fine with walking all over little things like facts and accuracy. Gossip Cop can even point out another consistency issue. It was less than a year ago that the tabloid was claiming Simpson didn’t want anything to do with Ross, and was even refusing to be photographed with the music legend at her sister’s upcoming nuptials.

Now the magazine is spreading more absurdity, which includes the notion that Ross would have some kind of pull with the film industry. Simpson isn’t hoping to get any career assistance from Ross, but they’re certainly not on the outs either. The bottom line is OK!’s reporting remains anything but okay.
