Source: Jessica Simpson Not Getting a Prenup, to Papa Joe's Chagrin
By Rob Shuter Posted Nov 15th 2010 08:30AM
If you think it's odd that Jessica Simpson announced she's tying the knot with former footballer Eric Johnson just days after her ex, Nick Lachey, announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo, you might think it's even stranger that everyone's favorite blonde will once again say "I do" without a prenuptial agreement in her pocket.
"Nick walked away with over $10 million of her money when they divorced, because they had no prenup. You would think she would have learned her lesson," an insider tells me. "But where romance is concerned, Jess follows her heart not her head."
Although hopeless romantic Jessica has no concern over her estimated $100 million fortune, sources tell me Papa Joe, who as her manager gets 10 percent of every dime she makes, does.
"At the moment, Joe is sitting back and being a great father, supporting his daughter and his future son-in-law," a family friend tells me. "However, you can bet after all the excitement has died down, Joe is going to do everything in his power to make sure Jessica doesn't walk down the aisle until Eric signs away any right he might have to Jessica's enormous fortune."
Jessica has only known Eric since May and he has only just finalized his divorce from his wife of five years, Keri.
Insiders tell me that after she dated the likes of John Mayer and Dallas Cowboy Tony Romo, who dumped Jess on her birthday, she isn't going to let Eric get away.
No matter what it costs her!
