Jessica Simpson Bought Her Own Engagement Ring?
Yikes. Not only did Jessica Simpson buy Vanessa Minnillo's engagement ring (haha), but she also purchased her own. According to sources close to the couple, they claim there's absolutely no way Eric had the funds to purchse the ring on his own, unless his parents helped him out since they're loaded.
"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."
Jessica, who unveiled her flashy bling on Nov. 14 at a Kansas City department store, has long made it clear that money is not an issue with her, but even so her friends are concerned about the star's $100 million fortune.
"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 tells me. "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."
