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.

The bigger irony, TMZ, is that she had a girl, not a boy. Wow, this story is flaky.

Well, to hold the baby is not a bad thing, but to put the picture in the cover os an international magazine without your consent it's something else. Specially if the photo is misleading, making it look like her son, considering the high risk of kidnapping for celebrity offsprings.

She couldn't tell the difference between tuna and chicken! Do you really think she could mastermind some diabolical scheme like that? Spur of the moment thing for Jessica and some pap takes advantage.

Jessica is worth about 100 million dollars. So she hatched a plot to use a fake baby for 800 thousand that could cost her millions. And the pic didn't show up for months and was a boy not a girl. Hum...sue mag for using baby pic without your permission but I think those Jessica millions are still out of your reach. Sue sue sue...get rich when you sue sue sue. Don't worry about working when you can sue sue sue. Could be a rap or country tune.
