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.

But Jessica Simpson enjoyed a rare date night with her former athlete husband Eric Johnson as they attended the premiere for the documentary Gleason at the Regal Cinema in Los Angeles on Thursday.
The 36-year-old singer radiated beauty in her navy floor-length dress as Eric looked dapper while towering above her in his grey suit.

Jessica’s stylish garment featured a sexy subtle split down the side which allowed her to flaunt her opulent gold strappy heels.

Her former New Orleans Saints other half looked strikingly handsome as he put on a lively display in his button down shirt and sexy silvered scruff.
The good-looking pair oozed charisma as they mingled with fans and took a plethora of selfies, before joining stars such as Courteney Cox, Matthew McConaughey and Nick Cannon.



The film Gleason first premiered at Sundance in January and tells the story of the former New Orleans Saints defensive back who was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 34 in 2011.
