Did Jessica Simpson pay for her own $100,000 engagement ring? Sources tell PopEater that she did. "No way could Eric, who doesn't have a job at the moment, afford to purchase such an expensive ring," a source told Rob Schuter. "Yes, he made a little bit of money in the NFL and is from a wealthy family, but unless his parents helped him out, Jessica must have paid for it herself." Simpson became engaged to former San Francisco 49er Eric Johnson last week and her 4 carat Neal Lane ring is estimated to have cost $100,000. [PopEater]
