Jessica Simpson has left a lot of fans worried about her health after she posted her latest Instagram photo with her family.
Now, we all know who Jessica Simpson is, born in Texas in 1980, the singer has had a prolific career. She signed with Colombia records aged just seventeen, and this shot her to stardom.
Her debut album, Sweet Kisses, sold over 2 million copies, but it was her second album that saw her career really take off. Irresistible, released in 2001, was a top twenty hit. And Simpson’s follow-up album, In This Skin, sold over 3 million copies in the US alone.
Around this time, Simpson also began making headlines for her personal life, in particularly for her relationship with Nick Lachey, which became the subject of one of the first ever reality TV shows. Newlyweds aired between 2003 and 2005, and introduced Simpson to the wider world.
However, she wasn’t always universally loved. Many found her to be a quintessential dumb blonde (although Simpson later claimed she was playing this role up for the cameras).
Simpson followed this new-found notoriety with another hit album. ReJoyce: The Christmas Album was certified gold in 2004.
After this, Simpson then decided she wanted to try her hand at acting. She played Daisy Duke in the 2005 reboot of The Dukes of Hazzard. Simpson also famously covered These Boots Are Made For Walkin for the movie’s soundtrack. This was her first foray into the country music genre, where she has predominantly dwelled ever since.
Simpson is also a successful businesswoman, and her line of clothing alone has turned over $1 billion in revenue.
But that’s not all, you may also remember her 2020 memoir, Open Book. The scandalous book was a huge hit, and reached the number one spot in the New York Times bestseller list.
When it comes to her personal life, she’s currently married to NFL star Eric Johnson, with whom she shares 3 children, daughters, Maxwell and Birdie, and son, Ace.
And this week Simpson has hit headlines for a photo she posted of her and her family…
Jessica Simpson’s supporters are voicing their concern for the singer’s health after seeing how emaciated she seemed in her most recent Instagram images.
As the family celebrated Valentine’s Day, the forty-two-year-old posed for some adorable pictures with her husband and kids. But, her post was quickly inundated with hundreds of comments, some of which asked whether the singer was ok.
“CLEARLY!! something IS wrong,” one fan wrote.
“That can’t be her… She looks like a completely different person!” commented another follower.
“Why does she look so different?” another fan asked.
However, others backed her up, with one writing: “This girl cannot win with anyone. She has always been gorgeous no matter what her size.”
“If she was heavier they’d talk. She’s thinner they are still talking! Leave her alone!” said another fan.
This isn’t the first time fans have commented on her appearance, and Simpson has previously spoken out against the attention her weight loss has garnered.
“The most important thing I have learned through the last 5yrs without alcohol being a guard for escapism, is that I CAN and ALWAYS WILL get through it. I am capable of pretty much anything I care enough about to put my mind to,” she wrote.
“I feel compassion for the opinionated hate that some people can so effortlessly just blurt out with such intensity on social media or in the media in general.”
“As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise … peoples’ comments and judgments [sic] can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging ‘you will never be good enough.’” she said.
