Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson is a singer, actress and fashion designer who was born in Abilene, Texas, on July 10, 1980. Although her main focus throughout her career has been within the music industry, she has become involved in a wide range ventures that have contributed to her success and the fortune she has earned. She is now believed to have amassed a net worth of $150 million and here is how she did it.

Her professional career began at the age of just sixteen when she was signed to Columbia Records and released her debut Studio album in 1999. This album was an instant success and she sold over four million copies of the album worldwide. The album contained one of her best-known singles ‘I Wanna Love You Forever’.

Now that she had established herself in the music industry and enjoyed initial success, Jessica Simpson decided she wanted a more mature image for when she released her second album ‘Irresistible’ in 2001. This was again a big hit and it was gold certified by the Recording Industry Association.

He third studio album ‘In This Skin’ was released in 2003 and was the most successful album she released. The best single from this album was ‘With You’, which she released the same year, and the album sold seven million copies. This was followed by the albums ‘ReJoyce: The Christmas Album’ in 2004, ‘A Public Affair’ in 2006, ‘Do You Know’ in 2008, and ‘Happy Christmas’ in 2010. Although her album sales began to decline by the time she released her fifth album, sales from her music has continued to contribute to her fortune.

Music is not the only way that Jessica Simpson has amassed a net worth of $150 million. Reality television is another way that she has made her fortune. After four years of dating, she married singer Nick Lachey in 2002. The couple appeared together in a reality television series called ‘Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica’. The series followed the daily lives of the young couple. The series was aired on MTV from 2003 until 2005. Sadly, the couple announced their decision to separate in 2006 and Simpson filed for divorce on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.

Simpson enjoyed appearing on the screen and she made her film debut in the 2005 film adaptation of ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ playing the role of Daisy Duke. The film had a mixed level of success as although it was commercially successful, it was heavily criticized by critics who gave it negative reviews. For this film, Jessica Simpson recorded a cover of the song ‘These Boots Are Made for Walkin’’. This was a personal success for Simpson as it become her fourth single to reach the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Jessica Simpson has enjoyed many more successes within the film and television industries and each of these has contributed to her earning money. Films in which she has appeared include ‘The Master of Disguise’, ‘Employee of the Month’, ‘Blonde Ambition’, The Love Guru’, and ‘Private Valentine: Blonde & Dangerous’. She has made many guest appearances on television series and has appeared on several reality shows. She was also a judge/ mentor on ‘Fashion Star’ between 2012 and 2013.

Making a move away from the entertainment industry, Jessica Simpson has gone on to pursue business ventures and has specifically focused on the fashion industry. She has become a huge success in this field and her brand is one of the most successful celebrity-founded fashion brands of all-time. She first launched The Jessica Simpson Collection in 2005 and this brand has gone on to make over $1 billion in revenue.

In 2010. Simpson began dating NFL’s Eric Johnson and the couple announced their engagement the same year. In late 2011, she confirmed that she was expecting their first child. While pregnancy may slow down many mothers-to-be, for Jessica Simpson it opened up new opportunities for business ventures. She signed a deal with Weight Watchers to promote their brand by losing her pregnancy weight with them following the birth of her child and she also launched a maternity range for her clothing brand.

Simpson gave birth to her daughter, Maxwell Drew Johnson, in May 2012. Motherhood inspired her to launch a fragrance called ‘Vintage Bloom’. She then became pregnant again and her son, Ace Knute Johnson, was born in June 2013. In the same year as her son was born, Simpson launched a range of interior décor. She then went on to launch a range of work out clothes.

Although she is now involved in a wide range of business ventures, Jessica Simpson has not given up on her music career. She is currently working on her eight album which she plans to release in late 2018.
