Eric Johnson Nicknamed “Jackpot” Because Jessica Simpson Pays The Bills?

Truth rating: 0

Eric Johnson doesn’t have to go to Vegas; he’s already hit the jackpot as the fiancé of pregnant Jessica Simpson,” declares Star.

In fact, says the magazine, “Jessica’s friends and family have nicknamed [him] ‘Jackpot Johnson’ behind his back.”

“Eric loves the nickname, even though it started off as a dig because Jessica pays all the bills,” a so-called “insider” tells Star. “Now he even has a bowling shirt that has Jackpot Johnson embroidered on it.”



It turns out the same publication that wrongly claimed Simpson was furious with Johnson for checking out her sister Ashlee — and falsely alleged that he cheated on his fiancee with his ex-wife — still has absolutely no clue what’s actually going on with them.

A source close to the couple tells Gossip Cop the “Jackpot” story is NOT true.
