Are Jessica and Ashlee Simpson really “dreading” Thanksgiving with their family? That’s the latest claim from one of this week’s tabloids, but Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight. We’re told it’s “not true.”
“Ashlee And Jessica’s Holiday Hell,” Star is announcing in a new headline. In the accompanying story, the magazine asserts that the sisters “have their tinsel in a twist” over the “brewing family drama” between their divorced parents, Tina and Joe. A so-called “source” is then quoted as saying, “The sisters are dreading Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Tina can’t stand the sight of Joe, she usually gets raving drunk just to deal with him and his snide comments, and someone always ends up looking after her.”
As for Ashlee’s husband Evan Ross, the publication’s dubious family insider oddly purports that “no one is fond of him.” Further contends the magazine’s questionable “source,” “[Ross] seems very judgemental and probably thinks the whole Simpson clan is crazy. But given the fiasco that always ensues, Tina wasted, Joe hurling insults, Jessica snapping at her husband, three screaming kids, can you blame him?”
But Gossip Cop fact-checked, and a rep for the Simpson sisters tells us the story is 100 percent “not true.” Jessica and Ashlee are not “dreading” Thanksgiving, nor is there any “brewing family drama” between their parents, who amicably split in 2012. Actually, we’re further told the entire Simpson clan is spending the holiday season in L.A. together this year. Additionally, contrary to the outlet’s assertion about no one liking Ashlee’s husband, Tina posted a sweet photo on Instagram of herself and Ross. She captioned the post, “Blessed by the 2 best son in laws!!!” Not surprisingly, the article is just more lies from the tabloid.
Of course, Star doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to reporting on the Simpson family. For example, Gossip Cop corrected the outlet when it wrongly claimed in October that Ashlee gets nonstop plastic surgery. And shortly before that tall tale, we debunked the magazine for falsely alleging in a cruel story that Jessica had “hit rock bottom.” Much like those bogus stories, this latest one is equally untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
