Is Jessica Simpson telling Eric Johnson to lose weight? One of this week’s tabloids has deemed the former football player a “chubby hubby.” But the story is filled with more fat than facts.

According to Star, Johnson “wants to have his cake and eat it too.” The magazine claims, “During a recent family vacation in French Polynesia, the self-conscious stay-at-home dad kept his t-shirt on — despite the tropical temps — but a gust of wind exposed his weight gain.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Jessica didn’t mince words. She told Eric he’s gotten heavier and poked his belly to prove it.”

“She even had him hop on the scale because she thinks he’s in denial,” continues the supposed snitch. “Jessica just doesn’t understand how she manages to run a billion-dollar business, look after two rambunctious kids and still find time for the gym. What’s Eric’s excuse?”

Well, he doesn’t need one. Simpson has no problem with her husband’s size. In fact, she even posted a shirtless photo of him on Instagram just weeks ago (see below). Now a mutual friend of Simpson and Gossip Cop exclusively tells us the Star story is “totally false.”

The tabloid’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, tried peddling similar nonsense back in March. The outlet claimed Simpson was demanding Johnson lose weight. But it wasn’t true then, and it still isn’t now.

Maxwell made Daddy her canvas. “Dad you be half tiger half dragon ok?” I love my husband.
