American singer-songwriter, actress, television personality and fashion designer Jessica Simpson is opting for a breast reduction surgery that once helped her bring her name and fame and always subject to tabloid attention.
“She’s never loved having a huge chest,” the U.K. tabloid The Sun quoted a friend saying. The report added that Simpson is hoping to slim down before her November wedding to NFL player Eric Johnson. But a source familiar with the singer’s plans told ABCNews.com that 31 year-old Simpson had no plans of getting a breast reduction and hasn’t even set a wedding date.
In the past, Simpson’s own father, Joe Simpson, a former Baptist minister, got into hot water when he famously bragged about his daughter’s bosom. “Jessica never tries to be sexy. She just is sexy,” he told the New York Post’s PageSix.com in 2004. “If you put her in a T-shirt or you put her in a bustier, she’s sexy in both. She’s got double Ds! You can’t cover those suckers up!”

Recently, Simpson appeared to have made peace with her body. After she endured a public hazing when she dared to wear a pair of high-waist jeans at a 2009 concert, showing off a more curvaceous figure, Simpson headlined VH1′s reality series, “The Price of Beauty” in which she traveled the world in search of what people find beautiful and why. “I have always believed that beauty comes from within, and confidence will always make a woman beautiful, but I know how much pressure some women put on themselves to look perfect,” Simpson said in a statement to ABCNews.com before the show aired in 2009. “I am really looking forward to discovering how beauty is perceived in different cultures andparti cipating in some of the crazy things people do to feel beautiful.”
One person who thinks Simpson is beautiful is Johnson. They began dating last May and got engaged in November. In keeping with his former 49er colors, Johnson gave Simpson a Neil Lane ruby ring flanked by two diamonds. OK! magazine estimated the cost of the ring at $185,000, “because it’s a ruby and because of its rareness.” She will hopefully get what she is expecting or what her fiance expects her to be.
