Was this an unflattering angle, coinciding with an unflattering outfit? Jessica Simpson has put on some weight. If you've been reading RadarOnline.com, you knew that.
Even Barack Obama was forced to acknowledge the story.
But wait! According to Tarts, friends are claiming she really and truly isn't much heavier than before.
"She's a normal girl and like everyone fluctuates a little but there is no way she gained that much weight," an insider is quoted as saying. "It was a really unflattering outfit and a really bad angle. You look at photos taken of her just a couple of weeks earlier and nobody said anything about weight gain, now all of a sudden she's considered fat. Not possible."
