Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson are NOT the “next celebrity couple to split,” despite a misleading and sensational report. Gossip Cop can reveal what’s really going on.

“Frosty Marriage! Jessica Simpson & Eric Johnson Caught Looking Distant & Tense,” reads a headline on the Star website. The tabloid asks, “Are they the next celebrity couple to split?” and “Another marriage meltdown this year?” No and no.

This ridiculous story is all because Simpson and Johnson didn’t put on a show for paparazzi at the airport. The magazine writes that the stars “were spotted arriving at LaGuardia Airport in New York City on Sept. 21 looking more tense than ever. When photographers asked if they’d get closer to each other for a shot, Eric awkwardly moved further away from Jessica.”

Well, he moved further away because he had no interest in giving the paparazzi their money shot. Still, the outlet goes on to say that Simpson and Johnson “may already be going through some marriage trouble” because “they’ve been caught on numerous occasions looking unhappy together.” Of course, as Simpson repeatedly indicates on her Instagram, she and Johnson are actually passionately in love.

What’s really going on is Star is trying to make it seem like another major Hollywood couple could be splitting in the wake of the big Brangelina breakup. The tabloid took simple, benign footage of Simpson and Johnson walking in an airport, and attempted to turn it into evidence that they could be following in Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s path.

It’s just simply not true. Simpson even indicates in the clip that she’ll cozy up to Johnson on their flight. Watch the video below to see how Star wrongly twisted it.
