Jessica Simpson And Eric Johnson Are Engaged!!!
Wow! We didn’t exactly see this one coming: Jessica Simpson’s man Eric Johnson apparently popped the question last week reports Us magazine. The blonde star was spotted with some big bling on her left hand this weekend, and sources are reporting that they’re engaged.
Sources confirm to UsMagazine.com that the singer, 30, became engaged to beau Eric Johnson on Thursday, just days after Us broke the news that her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, popped the question to Vanessa Minnillo, his love of nearly five years. Simpson and Lachey, 37, split in 2005, after three years of marriage.
On Saturday, Simpson flashed a sizable ring on her left hand during an appearance at Dillard’s at Oak Park Mall in Kansas City.
Jessica’s rep has yet to confirm that the couple, who’ve been dating since May, are in fact engaged. Trusty Gossip Cop has put some feelers out there as well, and hasn’t been able to postively confirm anything just yet…
Still, things seem to be going really well for these two, so it wouldn’t really be too out of the question. Plus, Jess’ ex Nick Lachey just announced his engagement to girlfriend of 5 years Vanessa Minnillo, so maybe she thought it was time to put a ring back on it, too
The Texas native began dating the former NFL player in May while he was estranged from his first wife, stylist Keri Johnson; their divorce was finalized five months later.
We’ll have to wait and see how this one plays out, but, if it’s true, a big congrats going out to all the happy couples!
Though Ashlee Simpson-Wentz recently told Us that her sister “is happy, so we’re all really happy,” sources insist that most of Simpson’s friends are concerned about Johnson’s motives for dating the singer.
“Eric was never that successful in the NFL, but he’s always wanted the celebrity lifestyle,” a source told Us in October. “Her friends do not trust him.”
