Jessica Simpson is in a “dangerous spiral,” reports In Touch. According to the magazine, she “can’t stop dieting” and is “wasting away,” allegedly down to 99 pounds.

Simpson is now sporting “sunken cheeks, a razor-sharp jawline and an empty look in her eyes,” says the outlet. “She’s the smallest she’s been in years, and she still doesn’t think it’s good enough,” explains a source for In Touch. “She’s determined to get even thinner.”

A so-called “insider” for the tab claims, “She wants to get down to 93 pounds. She’s become an exercise addict… She’s gotten so carried away, she’s fainted on a few occasions.” The In Touch source adds, “Her loved ones are scared to death she’s getting eating-disorder thin. It seems she can’t and won’t stop losing weight.”

Uh-huh. Here’s the thing: In Touch frequently makes up stuff about Simpson. And it often focuses on her weight. And the tabloid’s primary motivation in these stories seems to be sensationalism, not accuracy. That’s how we get a bogus, somewhat mean-spirited article like this one, which pretends that Simpson’s loved ones are freaking out about her perfectly healthy weight. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop exclusively that In Touch’s report, an insult to people who actually have eating disorders and severe health problems, is 100 percent false.
