Poor Jessica Simpson is getting a lot of sh*t for getting engaged just one week after Nick Lachey popped the question to Vanessa Minnillo.
But even if that really is a coincidence, I’m not letting her live down that Cracker Jack ring on her finger. And now I’m hearing she may have paid for it herself!
The ring is allegedly $100,000 and is allegedly Neil Lane….two things that don’t really add up when you consider the fact that Eric Johnson doesn’t have a job.
A source tells Popeater.com, "No way could Eric, who doesn't have a job at the moment, afford to purchase such an expensive ring," a friend of Jessica's tells me. "Yes, he made a little bit of money in the NFL and is from a wealthy family, but unless his parents helped him out, Jessica must have paid for it herself."
Rumor has it Jess’ friends and family are worried she’s jumping in a little too soon with this jobless ex-NFL player.
"First, we find out that Jessica doesn't want to have a prenup, and now we find out that she might have paid for her own ring. It just doesn't feel right to me," a family friend adds. "We all want Jessica to be happy and finally find true love after all she has been through, but she doesn't understand that in the long run if she pays for everything it will hurt her relationship with any man."
One of her other friends said,
"What's the big deal? Jessica has more money than she can ever spend. If she wants to treat her future husband, friends or even herself to an expensive piece of jewelry, it's her business and no one else."
So she pretty much just admitted right there that Jess did in fact pay for the ring….nice goin’.
I don’t care how much money you have—buying your own engagement ring just screams pathetic. This whole thing is just so tacky! I thought you were better than this Jess!
