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.

What an idiot. They need a new law that says if you file a law suit simply because the person is rich and an easy target, they should have to pay twice the amount they were suing for to that person.

All celebs take big money offers for the first photos of their babies to be released. This isn't some far-fetched theory. It's a pretty damn well-known fact!

Jessica is a billionaire. She does not need a fake photo of her baby that has not been born. I think this guy is trying to get 10 seconds of fame and is out of gas.

What makes her think people give a rats ass about her baby? Like she's the only woman on the planet to ever give birth. She wasn't exactly a shining example of a healthy pregnancy. She cashed out every dime she could from it and people have become weary of her wide load and naked pregnancy girth splashed on magazine covers that make my eye twitch rapidly. Enough!
