“Jess Tells Pals: ‘We’re Getting Married,’” claims a headline about Jessica Simpson and beau Eric Johnson in the new issue of Star.
A Simpson “pal” supposedly squeals to the mag that the singer “is telling all of her friends that she’s going to marry Eric.”
“She even bought herself an engagement ring,” alleges another so-called “friend.”
Wait– she bought herself an engagement ring?
But don’t expect to see Simpson sporting the “three-carat emerald cut diamond.” Conveniently, the tabloid explains that Simpson won’t wear the ring in public until Johnson actually proposes.
This is all very interesting, but a person who is actually a close friend of Simpson’s tells Gossip Cop that the story is “hysterical”… because it’s completely untrue.
“Jessica would never buy herself a ring or do anything like this article says,” explains the pal. “She is very happy with Eric but aside from that this story is ridiculous.”
