They wed in front of family and friends at Diana Ross’ estate in Greenwich, Connecticut. Ashlee’s son, Bronx, walked her down the aisle and her sister Jessica Simpson was maid of honour.
According to a new report, Ashlee hoped the wedding would generate interest from the tabloids. Leading to a lucrative exclusive deal. However, no one wants the photos. So she may share them on social media for free.
“The Simpsons have a long history of selling pictures to magazines,” an insider tells Confidenti@l. “When Jessica was at the peak of her success with Nick Lachey, her dad made an exclusive several-part deal with OK! magazine. Just a few months ago, Jessica sold her most recent wedding pictures to People for $300,000.”
The source admits, however, “But now it seems no one cares about Ashlee anymore.”
“The only outlet that had expressed any real interest is People,” revealed the insider. “But they made it clear that a picture of the two sisters together would be better than a picture of Ashlee alone or with her groom. And (People) will not guarantee a cover.”
Now this information has leaked to the media, Ashlee’s pictures are suddenly for sale as non-exclusives.
“It’s not just the money — Ashlee wanted her wedding to be as important as her sister’s,” insists a friend. “She’s always been in Jessica’s shadow and wanted this to be her time to shine. She would give the images away to get a cover, even if it means sharing one with her maid of honor.”
Ashlee and Evan became engaged in January, after dating for 6-months.
