LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Jessica Simpson’s spending is again prompting concerns. Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring is a stunning Neil Lane creation. But a new report claims the ring, valued upwards of $200,000, may have been bought by Simpson, not Eric Johnson. This follows reports that Simpson wants to marry Johnson without a prenup; Johnson’s current employment status has not been reported by news.
In April 2009, Simpson’s spending on Tony Romo turned heads. Simpson reportedly bought Tony Romo a $100,000 birthday present. On Simpson’s birthday, Tony Romo instead gave her something else: notice he wanted to breakup. News has yet to confirm if the boat was ever returned to Simpson.
The boat was a 25-foot Malibu Wakesetter 450 horsepower speed boat. Reports at the time said “Tony loves speed, and with all of the horsepower in his new boat, he can go as fast as anyone on the lake. Jessica knows that Tony has always wanted a boat…. Jessica is hoping that a birthday gift to Tony will lead to marriage, and by this time next year that she’ll be walking down the aisle with him.”
The boat didn’t keep the relationship afloat even to summer. After the April gift, Tony broke up with Jessica in July.
Now Rob Shuter is reporting that Simpson bought her own engagement ring. This is amid reports that Simpson has told her dad she will marry Eric without a prenup.
And while Shuter says Simpson’s net worth is $100 million, Forbes claims that to be false. In 2010, Forbes reported Simpson’s shoes and accessories have been earning Jessica $500 million in sales, annually, for multiple years. That is compared to Sean Diddy Combs’ $500 million and Jay-Z’s $700 million annual numbers.
