A Louisiana couple is suing Jessica Simpson and OK Magazine for allegedly posting their baby on the cover without their knowledge. According to the lawsuit, Christopher Hurst and Tracy Gregory took their 2 children to a Dillard’s Department store in Metairie to meet Simpson, who was signing autographs in October 2011. While in line the couple was tipped off that they should allow Simpson to take a photo with their baby. Little did they know that months later, their baby would be on the cover of a magazine.
The lawsuit claims another publication paid Simpson $800,000 for the exclusive rights to the photos of her firstborn, Maxwell — a girl, but indeed revealed the photos of Simpson holding the child of a fan. Apparently they believed the couple wouldn’t find out. The couple say they did not sign a release form giving OK! magazine permission to publish a photo of their son. They are seeking $75,000 in damages.
