Jessica Simpson And Eric Johnson Are Engaged: Is The Announcement Ill-Timed?

It’s official: Jessica Simpson is engaged. Reportedly, the 30-year-old singer confirmed her engagement to Eric Johnson to US Magazine. Interestingly, the announcement comes just days after the news of Nick Lachey’s engagement. For those that don’t remember, Lachey is Simpson’s ex-husband. Hmmm . . . does the timing sound a little suspicious to anybody else?

The engagement itself does not come as much of a surprise to anybody. According to MSN, sources later confirmed that Simpson and Johnson were planning their upcoming nuptials.

Of course, what’s a wedding announcement without a little bit of juicy gossip? Apparently, Johnson is a former NFL player, but wasn’t super successful at his chosen profession. This bit of information has lead to some suspicion about Johnson’s sincerity about the singer. One source tells US Magazine, “”Eric was never that successful in the NFL, but he’s always wanted the celebrity lifestyle. . .” The source continues, “Her friends do not trust him.”

Well, despite the strange timing of Simpson’s engagement, hopefully, her second marriage will be more successful than her last. As most probably remember, Simpson had a very public break-up with Nick Lachey after their reality show, “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica,” put their marriage in the spotlight. This, of course, led to the marriage’s inevitable demise.

Congratulations to both Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson on their upcoming wedding.
