Jessica Simpson “Pregnant & Betrayed,” Claims Mag

Truth rating: 1

By Michael Lewittes


“Jessica: Pregnant & Betrayed,” blares a sensationalized headline from In Touch, which claims Jessica Simpsons world has been rocked by news that Eric Johnsons ex-wife is writing a “tell-all book that could brand her a home wrecker.” According to the tabloid, “Keri Johnson has a tell-all book in the works that reportedly will dish on the fact that Eric was still married when he first hooked up with Jessica.”

The mag alleges the “threat of Keri’s book” is casting a “new dark cloud” on Simpson’s family life, quoting a supposed “insider” as saying, “Jessica doesn’t want anyone to know all this about her.” In Touch’s so-called “source” tattles, “If Jessica hadn’t come along, Eric and Keri would still be married.” So, the tab’s sources can predict the future now? Impressive!

Anyway, the purported insider goes on to add, “Keri has always wanted to write a book about her divorce; that’s what she hasn’t talked or sold any photos… yet.” Ooh, that sounds pretty ominous.

There’s just one thing wrong with this story. Eric and Keri were were “100% separated when he met Jessica,” a source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop. Therefore, there’s nothing in Keri’s alleged tell-all that could be threatening to Simpson, despite the mag’s salacious claims that the book is set to devastate the superstar.
