CLAIM: Eric Johnson Proposing to Jessica Simpson

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes


“Jess’ guy is buying a ring!” exclaims a headline in the latest In Touch Weekly.

The tab claims that Eric Johnson, who has just finalized his divorce from his first wife, is “getting ready to pop the question” to Jessica Simpson.

According to a so-called friend of Johnson, the former NFL player has “started shopping for an engagement ring, since he’s going to propose over Christmas – if he can wait that long.”

The friend adds Simpson and Johnson have begun premarital counseling at a local Christian church, and are “meeting with their minister as the next step.”

So, is the pop singer ready to settle down again?

Not quite.

A source close to Simpson tells Gossip Cop that the couple is very happy, but “there is no counseling going on,” and “they are not rushing into anything.”
