Jessica Simpson’s joy has turned to heartbreak as her relationship with fiancé Eric Johnson crumbles – and now their wedding is off…well..at least thats the rumor.
Her nearly year-long engagement to the handsome former NFL player had already run into trouble when the beauty began telling pals in mid-September that she could be pregnant with her first child.
Now the couple are sooverwhelmed that they’ve postponed their Nov. 11 wedding indefinitely – and friends say the relationship is doomed.
“This should be the happiest, most joyous time of Jessica’s life, but instead she’s miserable,” confided a family insider.
“She and Eric are just not happy together, and they’ve agreed to put off their wedding.”
The pregnancy rumors gathered pace after Jessica, looking bigger than ever, chowed down with Eric on Oct. 3 at BJs restaurant in Century City in L.A.
She did not look happy when she emerged from the fast-food bistro, and Eric clumsily grabbed her hand when he realized photographers were snapping them.
“Eric’s feeling like an outcast with Jessica, and her family fears he’s using her as a meal ticket. Jessica’s parents, Tina and Joe, are worried she’ll wind up like her younger sister Ashlee – a single mom raising a child in a broken home.”
Sadly, Jess, 31, is already experiencing mood swings and lashing out at Eric, 32, said a close source.
“Jessica cries at the drop of a hat, and when he tries to soothe her, she pushes him away and says she doesn’t want to be touched.”
Although the two have been all smiles at recent promotional appearances for Jessica’s new ready-to-wear clothing line, the source confirmed: “They’ve been putting on a brave face in public, but the relationship is falling apart.”
