Since losing her beloved dog Daisy last week, friends are concerned about Jessica Simpson.
"Daisy was her baby," a source claims. "It's going to put her into a tailspin. It will put her into the worst place ever."
She was inseparable with Daisy, whom she received as a present from then-husband Nick Lachey in 2004.
"She won't leave her parents' house," claims another. "Whenever things went wrong for Jessica, she reached for Daisy. She was her security blanket. When people let her down, she always had Daisy."
Simpson finally left when best bud Ken Paves picked her up for dinner, but it didn't do much!
"Jessica seemed okay, but wasn't smiling much," said an onlooker. "The wine made her relax a bit, but it was still obvious that she was having a devastating week."
And, rumor has it, she was bat-shit crazy with that dog!
Simpleton fed her Daisy steak instead of dog food and referred to herself as "Daisy's Mommy." When she left the house, she left the air conditioner on for the dog, refused visitors to not wake Daisy (in the event that she was sick) and threw her elaborate birthday parties.
It gets worse!
When Jessica was away for the night, she called home and had "someone put Daisy on the phone so she could say goodnight."
"Daisy ran the household," a friend said. "If Daisy didn’t like you, you were gone. Sometimes if her regular hair and makeup people weren’t available and Jessica had a sit-in, if Daisy didn’t like them, they wouldn’t be back. Daisy ran the roost."
"Jessica has a very small inner circle. But she always had Daisy. Daisy gave her unconditional love," divulged a friend. "Daisy never betrayed her. Daisy was always there for her. This is serious. Jessica’s heart is broken."
When she was having relationship problems, Jess "would cry herself to sleep at night, using Daisy as a pillow."
But this behavior is not out of character!
"Jessica is very needy. She is very clingy," the friend continued. "She is so sweet, but sometimes because of that she's hard to be around. It's not always easy. She hates to be alone. That's what happened with Tony [Romo]. Jessica smothers people. She doesn't really have any hobbies. Daisy was exactly what Jessica needed."
This is just sad!
Be strong, bb!
