Couple sues Jessica Simpson over baby pic

When you are famous, lawsuits just go with the territory. But one recently filed against Jessica Simpson is more bizarre than most.

The New Orleans Times-Picaynne reports that Simpson posed for a picture with the infant of a local couple at a Dillard's department store promo that then appeared on the cover of OK! Magazine with the tagline, “My first days as a new mom.”

The couple is accusing her of pretending the baby was hers and selling the shot for six figures, a laughable accusation. They also say they never OK'd (get it?) allowing their baby's picture to be used, despite the fact that the shot was taken in Dillard's department store, a public place.

They are suing for $75,000 for emotional distress and invasion of privacy.
