She’s been through her fair share of struggles – but just months ago fans of Jessica Simpson were praising her for her “healthier” look.
After bouncing back from a battle with alcohol that left her appearing bloated and disoriented, fans of the singer said she was looking “better than ever”.

But just two months on, a new photo of the US star, known for hits including I Wanna Love You Forever, has supporters concerned.
A snap on her Instagram page shows Jessica in an all-black ensemble – rocking platform-heeled boots and an oversized pair of shades.
It wasn’t her outfit that had fans talking – some struggled to recognise the slimmed-down star.
“What happened with her omg,” one fan wrote alongside a crying emoji, while another asked: “Are you ok?”
“Her face looks super thin, I hope she’s ok,” another concerned well-wisher wrote.
Others on Jessica’s feed just said: “No”.
Another fan said they loved Jessica whatever her look, but added that they particularly liked curves.
“Always beautiful, curvy or thin. I loved you and your curves. Looked like a very healthy role model,” the fan wrote.
“I know you work hard to be thin and the industry loves thin, but you and your curves were gorgeous.”
Jessica’s booze battle
Jessica’s transformation has been ongoing since November 2017.
That’s when she was shocked into action by a photo of her taken in the early hours of the morning.
In the picture, Jessica – dressed in a pink tracksuit – appears bloated and with glassy eyes.
Posting the snap on Instagram to her 5.6 million followers in November 2021, Simpson said at the time that her years of boozing had left her “exhausted” but that the photo had been a turning point in life.
Speaking previously about the moment she decided to turn her life around, Jessica told followers she had “so much self-discovery to unlock and explore”.
“I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self-respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity,” the mother of three wrote.
“Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction, and quite honestly I was exhausted.
“I wanted to feel the pain so I could carry it like a badge of honour.
“I wanted to live as a leader does and break cycles to advance forward – never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.”
The actress told fans the drinking wasn’t her issue, but that she “did not love herself”.
Jessica has since lost more than 45kg after walking 14,000 steps a day and following a strict diet.
