Her boyfriend was recently seen pumping gas.
In a related note, Jessica Simpson donated a new minivan - which uses gas to operate - to the Mexican orphanage she supports.
The pop star drew cheers when she drove through the gates of the Casa Hogar Elim orphanage in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, in a white 2007 Chrysler Town & Country and handed the keys to Mama Lupita, who runs the home. It was her most charitable act since showing off her giant boobs for men everywhere.
"The kids were cheering when she pulled up," Simpson's rep told People magazine. "They surrounded the car and were so excited to see her. They kept saying, 'Muchas gracias! Muchas gracias!' A few of them spoke English and said, 'We love you, Jessica!' "
Which was helpful. Because Simpson knows Spanish about as well as Bridget Moynahan knows birth control.
Mama Lupita, who speaks little English, was the first to give Simpson a big hug.
"I'm so honored and happy to be able to help," said Simpson, who hugged Mama Lupita and the throng of kids who had waited anxiously to see her and presented her with gifts, including an engraved plaque with a photo of the kids and a beaded necklace they'd made for her.
It was probably a nicer gift than anything that loser, John Mayer, has gotten for her in weeks.
Simpson was there with her mother Tina (who rode in the passenger seat when her daughter drove the minivan onto the orphanage's grounds) and her crazy manager father, Joe Simpson.
Last fall, Simpson won a Chrysler Crossfire sports car at a swag suite at the MTV's Video Music Awards, but asked Chrysler to exchange it for a minivan so she could help out the orphanage.
A spokesperson for Chrysler confirmed: "Instead of the Chrysler Crossfire, she decided to get a minivan for the orphanage instead. She went for the Chrysler Town & Country."
The seven-passenger minivan even has a DVD player so the kids can watch their favorite movies when Mama Lupita drives them around. We heard they can't wait for Spider-Man 3!
