Jessica Simpson is facing a fresh wave of backlash as a new poolside yoga photo of her goes viral. The 40-year-old actress, singer, and “Open Book” author dropped jaws earlier this month with a Warrior II yoga pose against a sunset pool backdrop, with the “Dukes of Hazzard” star having since returned for round two. Jessica opted out of posting the latest photo to her own Instagram, choosing instead to feature on her Jessica Simpson Style brand’s page. The stunning snap has caused a storm. Check it out below.
Scroll for the latest photo. Jessica, who famously shed 100 pounds in just six months after third baby Birdie Mae arrived in 2019, was looking super-fit and fantastic. The mom of three was posing in the same sunset setting and flaunting her cheese-grater abs and sculpted arms in a cheetah-print spandex pair of cropped leggings, plus a racy peep-hole sports bra showing some major cleavage.
Jessica, with her hair in a bun and her arms on her tiny waist, looked right at the camera as if she meant business.
A comment slamming the star, who owns an $11.5 million Hidden Hills mansion, has now sparked a storm. The user kicking the drama off wrote:
“Ahhh the beauty of being rich and retired, hire personal trainers and dripbit off for 18 months.”
The comment has not gone unnoticed. Fans are both agreeing and backing Simpson, whose clothing empire turned $1 billion back in 2015.
“I get what you’re saying,” one user replied, adding “But she has gained a ton of weight in the public eye and she’s lost it too so there are people wanting to know how she lost it.”
Users aren’t backing down and didn’t seem to appreciate seeing Simpson bashed. One fan wrote that maintaining one’s health shouldn’t have anything to do with one’s bank balance.
“It’s nothing that anybody who tries can’t succeed with. Can’t you be a decent person and just say something nice, or say nothing at all?” they said.
Jessica’s weight-loss photos have, this year, sparked separate backlash, with the singer called “way too skinny” as she kissed her 30s goodbye by fitting into a 14-year-old pair of True Religion jeans. Scroll for the Daisy Dukes.
Business is booming for Jessica Simpson right now. The star’s “Open Book” memoir has actually experienced a spike in sales amid the global pandemic, with her clothing line continuing to fly off shelves – she recently dangled from a bookshelf to promote her $169 platform boots. Fans regularly complain that the trendy apparel is sold out, with Jessica seeming to have the last laugh.
Jessica’s brand has now expanded into homeware, with 8-year-old daughter Maxwell even designing bed linens. Neither Jessica not her brand appear to have responded to the trolling.
