Jessica Simpson recently said on Twitter that Weight Watchers is not putting any pressure on her to lose weight.
This followed tabloid speculation that WW is pushing her too hard to lose too much weight and too quickly with goals to lose 50 pounds overall within a specific amount of time (for what it’s worth, sources close to Simpson say she’s happy with her body).
And now Us Weekly is reporting that Simpson has to lose AT LEAST 20 to 30 pounds by the end of next month or she won’t be paid any of the reported $3-4 million (either $3 million or $4 million depending on whom you believe). She doesn’t need the money, but she has been photographed arriving for her workouts a few times per week although it’s hard to gauge her consistency based solely on paparazzi photos.
Us Weekly has some more details, including what appears to be an admission that Simpson is drinking postpartum even though she’s breastfeeding.
A source tells Hot Stuff that Jessica Simpson learned at her first Weight Watchers weigh-in a few weeks after the May 1 birth of daughter Maxwell. She had gained 70 pounds. Luckily, Jessica has $4 million worth of motivation to shed them.
Her contract requires a 20 to 30 pound loss by the end of August or no payday, says a source. But it won’t be easy.
“Jessica has always had issues with junk food,” says a friend. So Jessica has called in reinforcements: She enlisted her mom, Tina, and a few pals to do the program “to help keep herself in check,” says the insider.
Simpson, who plans to breastfeed through July, also ditched her beloved high-calorie margaritas, adds the source. “She had a few drinks postpregnancy, but then stopped.” – via Us Weekly Magazine, Celebitchy.
