CLAIM: Jessica Simpson’s Dad “Begs” Her to Ditch Eric Johnson

Truth rating: 0

Jessica Simpson‘s father is begging her not to marry Eric Johnson, says In Touch, which further claims Joe Simpson “fears his little girl is rushing into another bad marriage.”

According to the mag, Johnson’s “unemployed status” is “causing some major concern” for the Simpson patriarch, so much so that he’s “pressuring Jess to call off the wedding completely!”

The tab quotes a “source” as saying, “It bothers Joe that Jessica is paying for everything and that Eric doesn’t really have a job.” The source adds, Papa Simpson “thinks Jessica can do much better.”

Meanwhile, the singer/actress is “trapped in the middle,” and “upset” that her dad “no longer approves of Eric.”

That’s funny, because a rep for the “Irresistible” singer tells Gossip Cop that Joe Simpson “loves” Johnson, and the two actually just went on a golf trip two weeks ago to Scotland.

Once again, In Touch is out of touch.
