Is Jessica Simpson really a “stage mom from hell”? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which says the singer is desperately trying to turn her two young kids into stars. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

According to OK!, Simpson is going out of her way to put 5-year-old daughter Maxwell and 4-year-old son Ace in the spotlight. A so-called “source” tells the magazine the singer “drags them to events for exposure and even shows them how to pose for photos.” The supposed insider adds, “And she’s competitive with other moms in her circle, always going on about her kids’ amazing skills and accomplishments.”

The outlet’s questionable source further contends that Simpson believes her daughter is going to become a movie star, and she also pushes the girl to “sing and dance whenever people come over.” “She’s just as full-on about how talented Ace is,” adds the alleged insider, “and how he’ll probably be a pro athlete like his dad [ex-NFL player Eric Johnson]. It comes across as superior, but Jessica’s just oblivious.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a mutual pal of ours and the singer, who dismissed the tabloid’s tale as “a joke,” before noting, “That’s the last thing she wants.” It’s possible this story was concocted because Simpson often posts pictures of her children on Instagram, but there’s a big difference between sharing family photos and attempting to raise child stars. Unfortunately, OK! has a long history of publishing lies about the singer, so we’re not surprised by this latest fabrication.

Gossip Cop busted the magazine earlier this year for wrongly reporting Simpson was pregnant with her third baby. Shortly before that, we debunked the tabloid’s bogus story about Simpson and her family starring on a reality show. This latest article from the frequently discredited outlet is similarly untrue.
