Jessica Simpson is NOT trying to get her own Las Vegas residency, despite an inaccurate tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”
According to In Touch, Simpson wants to follow in the footsteps of singers like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez by taking the stage in Las Vegas. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “She’s hell-bent on landing a Vegas residency and proving to everyone that she’s still got it.”
The magazine’s misinformed source further claims that Simpson is planning to utilize “state-of-the art technology and backdrops paired with her sex appeal” for her supposed show, and “thinks she can give the other headliners a run for their money.” The outlet’s seemingly phony source adds, “After 20 years in the music business, Jess is excited to follow her dreams and become a Vegas legend.”
But Gossip Cop checked in with a rep for Simpson, who exclusively tells us that the tabloid’s claim about the singer supposedly gunning for her own Las Vegas show is simply “not true.” Maybe it’s time for In Touch to find better sources. In the past, Gossip Cop exclusively busted the gossip rag for wrongly reporting that Simpson and her sister Ashlee were “at war” over each other’s parenting skills. Much like that tale and many others, the current report about Simpson angling for a Las Vegas residency is also untrue.
