Jessica Simpson is NOT a “stage mom from hell,” despite a bogus tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”
According to Star, Simpson is hard at work trying to turn her three-year-old daughter, Maxwell, into a child star. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “She’s getting Maxi dance, speech and acting classes, plus she and her glam squad give Maxwell tips on grooming, fashion, makeup and hair.” The tabloid’s dubious insider goes on to claim that Simpson’s friends are “stunned by how badly she wants Maxi to be a star.” The outlet’s supposed source further alleges, “She loves fame more than anything, and her kids will be in showbiz whether they like it or not!”
Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Simpson, and we’re exclusively told the tabloid’s claim about the singer plotting to make her daughter famous is simply “not true.” In fact, we recently busted Star’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, for making up a similar tale. The tabloid claimed that Simpson and her husband, Eric Johnson, were fighting over the singer’s alleged desire to push her daughter into show business. The story wasn’t true then, and it’s not any more accurate now.
