Jes­sica Simp­son was a bit wob­bly on her feet last week, and friends are wor­ried about her par­ty­ing

Friends warn: ‘You need help now’

We’ve all been there – had five too many dur­ing a night out, lost all abil­ity to walk and had to be car­ried home (haven’t we?). But as a bleary-eyed Jes­sica Simp­son stum­bled out of hus­band Eric Johnson’s birth­day party last week, we’re told this was not a one-off, and friends and fam­ily are con­cerned about her. “This is not the first time Jes­sica has been seen like this in pub­lic,” an in­sider tells heat. “Her fam­ily have been wor­ried about her for some time.” The mum of two has been seen stag­ger­ing about in the street on sev­eral oc­ca­sions re­cently, and we’re told friends want her to get help. But, the in­sider adds, “She’s so sin­gle-minded, she doesn’t seem to lis­ten.” And the par­ty­ing is hav­ing an im­pact on her diet, too, say friends of the singer – who also runs a bil­lion-dol­lar busi­ness sell­ing clothes, shoes, bags and beauty prod­ucts. “Jess goes through these phases where she starves her­self and drops weight for a few months,” says the source. Back in 2012, Jess lost 60lbs in 2012 as the face of Weight Watch­ers, but the friend says, “Her willpower is terrible these days, and it never lasts long. Sooner or later she’s back out par­ty­ing again and the weight goes straight back on. It doesn’t help that she loves stuff like white wine and Cham­pagne, which she can drink by the bucket load. She can re­ally cut loose when she wants to.”

The shock­ing new pic­tures came weeks af­ter Jes­sica, 37, was spot­ted look­ing un­steady on her feet at LAX air­port. “She had spent the whole flight from New York to LA knock­ing back Cham­pagne and de­mand­ing snacks,” our source says. “By the time she ar­rived on the West Coast, she was to­tally drunk. She was a com­pletely dif­fer­ent woman from the one who looked so pol­ished when she left New York.

“She’s not good at han­dling her al­co­hol, but she has re­as­sured her friends and fam­ily, and in­sists she’s just liv­ing life as a nor­mal person.” ■
