CLAIM: Jessica Simpson “Pulled the Plug” on November Wedding

Truth rating: 0

This one is almost too ridiculous. According to In Touch, Jessica Simpson “bizarrely pulled the plug” on her November 11 wedding to Eric Johnson just three weeks before the big day.

“It’s a surprising turn of events,” writes the tabloid, explaining, “The reality star/mogul had long been fixated on tying the knot on that date, exactly one year to the day her fiancé proposed.” Uh-huh. So what, pray tell, allegedly led Simpson to “call it off” at the last minute?

“Her baby bump popped out very quickly, and she’s much bigger than she thought she’d be at this stage,” explains a so-called “friend,” who says that Simpson went for a wedding gown fitting and “decided she was too big to get married.” Let’s take a few moments here to report what’s actually going on.

In Touch fabricated the 11/11/11 wedding date months ago after the first fake date the magazine set came and went with no wedding. Then, as the phony November nuptials neared, it wasn’t Simpson panicking – it was In Touch. Last week, the desperate tabloid invented an alleged Eva Longoria recommendation for Simpson to postpone the “wedding,” and now the mag is trying to convince readers that Simpson would be so surprised to learn she gained weight during a pregnancy that she’d cancel the ceremony at the last minute.

As sources close to Simpson have told Gossip Cop repeatedly and consistently ever since her engagement, she and Johnson have not planned a wedding date. In Touch is – once again – woefully out of touch… and unsuccessfully trying to cover its tracks.
