Jessica Simpson Self Magazine Cover Cancelled Following Weight Scandal

Jessica Simpson has pulled the plug on a photoshoot for an upcoming issue of Self Magazine in the wake of Weight-Gate 2009.

The buxom star made headlines when she appeared looking slightly heavier than usual at the 99.9 Kiss Country 24th Annual Chili Cook Off in Pembroke Pines, Florida last week.

According to this week’s edition of Us Weekly, Jessica was allegedly scheduled to shoot a cover for the fitness magazine, which she covered 2007, but backed out of the appearance following the uproar over her new figure.

Self Editor-In-Chief Lucy Danziger acknowledges that a cover with Jessica was in the works, but discussions broke down over scheduling conflicts.

“Self would love for Jess to be on our cover. We’ve had discussions about it but we couldn’t find a date… she’s very busy.”
