Jessica Simpson being sued over staged baby pictures
Jessica Simpson is being sued by a man who claims that the US star posed with his son and pretended that the child was her own.
Christopher Hurst’s allegations assert that Jessica Simpson devised a plan with OK! magazine to make money by posing for a photograph with his son which was then used on the cover of the publication (see image below).
The lawsuit states that it was suggested that Hurst should allow Simpson to hold his son when they met in a department store in October 2011.
Once the singer held the young boy Chris Hurst says that a photographer then began taking pictures of the two of them. One of those images was then used as a front cover picture by OK! alongside headlines that implied the boy was Jessica Simpson’s child.
Chris Hurst’s lawsuit accuses Jessica of having made a deal with a rival magazine to sell the first images of her daughter for $800,000, but later teamed up with OK! to make more money by being pictured with a baby that was not hers.
Chris Hurst is suing OK! And Getty Images, as well as Jessica Simpson, for damages in excess of $75,000.
Jessica Simpson, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has not commented on the allegations.
