A Louisiana couple is suing Jessica Simpson for cashing in on their baby -- by pretending he was hers. Umm, what? Yeah, we all know that Jess already has her own tyke, named Maxwell, and another on the way. So why would she need a strange couple's baby? Conspiracy theorists, gather round!
The couple's lawsuit says they were at a department store in Metairie and were given the chance to meet Simpson, who was promoting her clothing line. Someone suggested that the couple's baby son pose with Simpson, which he did. The couple were then shocked that the picture ended up on the cover of OK! Magazine with a headline suggesting that the baby was Jessica's.
Since Jess was still pregnant at the time, you'd have to be a dolt to think the baby was hers, but hey. Not everyone can put two and two together. The couple believe that Jessica plotted to get a baby in her grip so she could sell it to a magazine as her own and get money for an exclusive photo of her new baby. Wow, imagine if the mag fell for that? Could they not see that Jess still had her baby bump?
The couple is reportedly suing for $75,000. They say that Jessica's photo op with their baby caused them "emotional distress." Ahh, the hazards of baby photo ops!
Do you think the couple has the right to sue?
