Jessica Simpson Sued For 'Hurting Millions of Fat People'
Jessica Simpson's last movie "Blonde Ambition" went straight to DVD while a workout video she starred in was never released, which is why she got sued for $10 million by video fitness company Speedfit.
According to Speedfit owner Alex Astilean, the 27-year-old hottie changed her mind about the workout video and asked her father/manager Joe Simpson to negate the multi-million dollar contract. Jessica had already recorded a workout tape shortly before shooting her film "The Dukes of Hazzard" in 2005, but the material was "entirely unuseable" and when she was asked to reshoot it, she refused.
"Jessica was a mess during that shoot. She had no focus, she put out something that was entirely unusable," said a source close to Simpson. "They asked her to come back and reshoot, but she refused, and that's why she's facing a lawsuit now."
"The worst thing in the world would be for that tape to get out," the source added. "Ironically, it would sell better than her videos, but the last thing she needs for her career is to have the makings of a 'Saturday Night Live' skit out there for public consumption."
Speedfit is now suing Joe for failing to secure the $10 million payment from Jessica last year, as his daughter refused to settle the lawsuit.
"They are hurting millions of fat people in America!" Astilean told Usmazine.com. "I believe that very strongly - they held the video for years!"
In reply, Jessica's publicist told The New York Post that "It's a legal matter that's in the hands of attorneys."
In the meantime, Jessica's relationship with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is going great and their friends are already seeing them getting married.
"I think they're going to get married," Romo's close friend of three years, Michael Starr, was quoted by Usmagazine.com as saying.
"They're perfect for each other," actress Sophia Bush, a mutual friend of Romo and Simpson, added. "They're both funny and wonderful and kind. I'm rooting for them."
