A Christmas wedding (or is it a Shotgun Wedding) for Jessica Simpson?
She’s less than a week into her engagement with former NFL star Eric Johnson, but Hollywood spies claim Jessica Simpson is already putting the finishing touches on her upcoming wedding. Word on the Curb has it that Simpson — who announced plans to wed a week after ex-husband Nick Lachey — is determined to wed before the crooner because she does not want her wedding to be overshadowed by his nups to former MTV VJ Vanessa Minnillo.
And since Jessica can’t be bothered to protect her rumored $100 million fortune by getting a prenup, why wait?
“She wants to beat Nick to the altar. She knows that it is going to be tough to pull everything together on such short notice, so it might have to be a New Years wedding. In any case, she wants the focus to be on her wedding. She doesn’t want her wedding to be the aftermath of his,” a Simpson Camp source divulged to HollywoodLife.com.
While Jessica may be most concerned with beating Nick to the altar, her manager-father Joe is dead-set on ensuring that the reportedly cash-strapped Johnson doesn’t walk away with a substantial portion of Jessica’s fortune. Lachey reportedly pocketed $10 million
“…You can bet after all the excitement has died down, Joe is going to do everything in his power to make sure Jessica doesn’t walk down the aisle until Eric signs away any right he might have to Jessica’s enormous fortune.”
Eric and Jessica have only been dating since May.
