MAG: Jessica Simpson’s World “Destroyed” By Parents’ Alleged Split

Truth rating: 2

By Michael Lewittes


“Jessica Heartbroken: Her Family Destroyed,” blares the cover of OK!, which claims Jessica Simpsons parents are separating and that she’s “devastated” over their supposed split. The mag, picking up a weeks-old report from the National Enquirer (never a wise idea), says Tina and Joe Simpsons marriage is “on the rocks,” with Tina allegedly “living alone in Malibu.”

OK! notes, “Jessica had been hoping for a reconciliation, but now her mother is pushing harder for a formal separation.” A so-called “insider” for the tabloid claims the 32-year-old Simpson is now “feeling emotionally abandoned” due to her parents’ purported split. The “source” goes on to allege, “She has always been hugely dependent on her parents, but they are going through their own crisis right now, which means they don’t have much time for her.”

“It’s left Jessica feeling sad and helpless,” explains the supposed insider. The magazine goes on to claim that Tina and Joe’s reported split has wreaked havoc on Simpson’s entire life, saying that “her emotional eating is out of control” (B.S.); that her sister Ashlee has “deserted her” (FALSE); and that she’s now “gotten cold feet” about marrying fiancé Eric Johnson (NOT TRUE).

Of course, all of this is complete nonsense as Simpson’s parents have NOT broken up. A family insider tells Gossip Cop the tab’s tale is 100% fabricated and that Tina and Joe Simpson are still together, but acknowledges there are “problems” between the spouses.
