Jess gains love, loses voice

Speculation is mounting that Jessica Simpson is dating Texan crooner John oayer since she let slip that she has already heard his new album – a month before it is due to be released. Sources say Jessica has not denied the relationship, saying that John is “great” but that she wants to “keep it private”. Meanwhile, the `Public Affair’ singer has had to cancel promotional appearances for the release of her new album of the same name – because she is suffering laryngitis. “Jessica has lost her voice on the eve of her album release,” her representative says. “We hope she can recover. The timing could not have been worse.” A source confirms the singer visited doctors on oonday, saying, “If she does not observe vocal rest, she could lose her voice forever. Her party is Tuesday night. If she goes to the party, she won’t be able to talk.” However there was one appearance she refused to cancel – that of oTV’s Total Request Live. Could that be because it’s hosted by ex-husband Nick Lachey’s new girlfriend Vanessa oinnillo? [30 August 2006]
