Talentless plastic surgery fiend Ashlee Simpson has made it clear that is saving herself for her boyfriend, citing that as the reason she turned down a recent offer to pose naked for Playboy.

The magazine reportedly was willing to cough up $4 million for pictures of a nude Ashlee. Despite the staggering size of the offer, the lip-syncher says she was reluctant to share her body with tens of millions of eager male readers.

The actress also had a fight with boyfriend, Chris Ivery, at one point getting out of a car and running down the street, shouting to the driver that Ivery is "not her husband" when told by the driver to get back in the car with her husband.
