As Beyonce crooned, if you like it, you should put a ring on it.
Jessica Simpson apparently took this timeless mantra to heart.
The star, who recently announced her engagement to Eric Johnson, reportedly forked out $100,000 of her own money for a ruby-and-diamond Neil Lane band.
The future Mr. and Mrs. Jessica Simpson steppin' out this fall.
"No way could Eric, who doesn’t have a job, afford to purchase such an expensive ring,” a source said. "Yes, he made a little money in the NFL and is from a wealthy family, but unless his parents helped him out, Jessica must have paid for it."
Definitely. That MUST be what happened.
Sources add she may also fund an extravagant wedding so as not to be upstaged by ex-husband Vanessa Minnillo and Nick Lachey, who just got engaged too.“It will be big, elaborate," said the Simpson source. "She’s already starting planning everything and has every family member working on her big day."
“We all want Jessica to be happy and finally find love after all she has been through," the source adds, "but she doesn’t understand that in the long run if she pays for everything it will hurt her relationship with any man.”
Sure, it's a little degrading, but it's not necessarily a deal-breaker if the man gets to quit business school to live the life of an A-lister while waking up every morning next to Jessica Simpson. Just saying, could be worse for E.
