Itâ€™s official: Jessica Simpson is engaged. Reportedly, the 30-year-old singer confirmed her engagement to Eric Johnson to US Magazine. Interestingly, the announcement comes just days after the news of Nick Lacheyâ€™s engagement. For those that donâ€™t remember, Lachey is Simpsonâ€™s ex-husband. Hmmm . . . does the timing sound a little suspicious to anybody else?Â
The engagement itself does not come as much of a surprise to anybody. According to MSN, sources later confirmed that Simpson and Johnson were planning their upcoming nuptials.
Of course, whatâ€™s a wedding announcement without a little bit of juicy gossip? Apparently, Johnson is a former NFL player, but wasnâ€™t super successful at his chosen profession. This bit of information has lead to some suspicion about Johnsonâ€™s sincerity about the singer. One source tells US Magazine, â€œ"Eric was never that successful in the NFL, but he's always wanted the celebrity lifestyle. . ." The source continues, "Her friends do not trust him."
Well, despite the strange timing of Simpsonâ€™s engagement, hopefully, her second marriage will be more successful than her last. As most probably remember, Simpson had a very public break-up with Nick Lachey after their reality show, â€œNewlyweds: Nick and Jessica,â€ put their marriage in the spotlight. This, of course, led to the marriageâ€™s inevitable demise.
Congratulations to both Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson on their upcoming wedding.Â
