Jessica Simpson Sued

Accused of Diabolical

Baby Conspiracy!

Jessica Simpson was involved in a dastardly conspiracy with OK! Magazine to make a buck by grabbing a man's baby and mugging with the infant for the camera, making it appear as if the child were hers ... this according to a bizarre new lawsuit.
 
According to lawsuit uncovered by The Times-Picayune in New Orleans, Christopher Hurst took his teenage daughter and infant son to a department store in October 2011 to meet Simpson.

The lawsuit claims ... when Hurst got close to Simpson, a stranger suggested he hand his infant over to Simpson ... who was pregnant at the time.

Hurst obliged, and then, according to the suit, a photog came out of nowhere and began snapping pics.

According to the suit, Hurst was stunned months later when OK! splashed the pic on its cover, making it appear it was Jessica's baby. The irony -- Jessica's baby wasn't even born yet. 

The lawsuit accuses Jessica of being in on the plot, claiming she had a deal with a competing mag to sell the first baby pic for $800k, but then got greedy and hatched a plot with OK! to double dip with a baby that wasn't even hers.

Hurst is suing Simpson, OK! magazine, and Getty Images for damages in excess of $75,000.

We reached to a rep for Simpson ... so far, no word back.

Gimme a break. That's so far fetched & ridiculous. Jessica is a multi-millionaire - she doesn't need to scheme with a low level rag like OK to score $75k. She was obviously at an event, this guy handed his baby over to her for a pic, someone took a shot (maybe a pap) and sold it to OK who printed it. That's all. This guy is just another nitwit who's looking for a quick buck and to wrongly get someone else to foot the bill for raising his kid. He saw an opportunity with a celebrity over an innocent cir***stance and went for it. Shame on him. This loser needs to get a job dude and pay for his own kid's needs.

Yeah I don't buy it. Jessica may be a simpleton but she isn't a greedy fame whore. The photog and the father are probably in on it to sue her and split it.

You mean Jessica's Daughter, Maxwell, right? yeah. Her daughter wasn't born yet. Her son (reports say) is not born yet now, in 2013, not 2011.

" The irony -- Jessica's son wasn't even born yet."

Really? Maybe the irony is that TMZ's weekend writer doesn't know a Maxwell is a girl.

I could believe a staged photo but it's hard to believe that they would use a random baby without consent..

Oh please, I fail to see how this man was damaged - just looking for a quick pay-out. However, did OK really present that child has her baby? Shame on them.
