Jessica Simpson asks to kiss Britney's pregnant belly…?

08/24/2006 at 04:42 PM ET

Spearssimpson1Although we now know this untrue thanks to K Fed’s denial, Us Weekly reported that Jessica Simpson was insulted when Britney Spears rebuffed her attempt to kiss Brit’s 36 weeks pregnant belly at the Teen Choice Awards over the weekend. Apparently, Jessica asked Britney if it would be okay to kiss the bump, to which Britney replied, "Hell no!" Granted, Britney could have simply declined, but still, why should Jessica be insulted? Britney’s body, Britney’s decision, we say.

CBB reader Victoria asked us to post a poll asking our readers who are soon to be or already moms what they thought when people asked them if they could touch or kiss their belly. Answer away, and share stories in the comments if you’re interested.

I don’t think I’d let people kiss my bump, but touching wouldn’t be as bad. Although it’d depend where you were at the time!

pink.lioness on

It depends who the person is who’d want to touch my bump! A close friend or family member – no problem at all. Kissing it would only be allowed to my older children or my husband though :-)

I certainly wouldn’t want a stranger to touch my belly, or even kiss it. And I’d never dare ask if I could kiss some pregnant woman’s belly!

joy on

hmm I don’t think I’d let anyone other then close family touch my tummy and kissing would be off limits to all but my hubby!

I find it hard to believe this story though too.

Holly on

Why do people want to touch (or kiss) a pregnant woman’s stomach anyway? It’s not like they’re touching a baby, they’re just touching a stomach. I don’t get it at all, it’s never occured to me to touch a pregnant woman’s stomach.

Victoria on

I was OK with people, even strangers, touching my belly as long as they asked first and weren’t creepy. But only old ladies wanted to touch my belly, as far as strangers went. No one wanted to kiss it though. I don’t get why Jessica Simpson would want to KISS her belly. Maybe place her hand on it or something, but kiss it? No thanks.

tink1217 on

umm, jessica is a strange one!!! i don’t think i would even ask to kiss my family member’s bump, let alone a friend or stranger. touching, okay if you ask and are a close friend or family, but kissing??? Jessica should know better! I do find the whole story a bit far fetched though!

Kori on

I personally loved when people touched my belly. I do think it should be general understanding by strangers that they should ask first though. I can see why people wouldn’t want their belly touched though. I have a friend who hated it and whenever someone touched her belly without asking she’d touch theirs back.

Sara on

I am the mother of a 3 month old and there is NO WAY I’d let a stranger kiss my pregnant belly. I’m also one of the most affectionate, touchy-feely people I know. It’s inappropriate and weird but people love to pat your belly whe you;re preggers. I can’t imagine if someone had tried to kiss mine. When your pregnant you are VERY protective of your unborn child, people will bump into you in a crowd without noticing or caring. I’m not a BS or a JS fan but as a 3rd party, that would be so wrong if it was true…

Lina on

Well, first of all the reason why someone would want to touch or even kiss a pregnant belly is because its the most beautiful thing that us as humans are capable of doing, its a beautiful thing, I as a mother to be would be completely flattered if someone wanted to do something that special, Its recognizing and acknowledging what being pregnant really means. I mean if the story were true I think that it says a lot about Jessica as a person she isn’t the shallow idiot she seems to be, she also had the decency to ask, as for her being offended who wouldn’t be? Its one thing for someone to answer politely but “hell no” c’mon… I think it’s very cute of her for having that gesture. As for Britney, I mean “hell no” it really wasn’t necessary to go that far! She seems to be very immature, and all around shallow, she isn’t deep, not that I thought she ever was.

I think this was just Jessica trying to get a cute photo opt. I think if it was just the 2 of them alone she would have never asked but because it was a fun day she probably thought it would make a cute photo and probably end up in every magazine. I do not think she was being crazy or anything. Just looking for a good picture to splash over all the magazines if it had occured I think it would have been a picture posted everywhere.

Yaussie girl on

I am glad she didn’t kiss it, she may have caught K-Fed’s germs…..

unless the person was a close friend or family member, i would feel really uncomfortable with touching my belly when i was pregnant. that said, i completely agree with everything lina posted.

Orle on

When I was preggers I felt it was OK for people to touch my belly as long as they asked first, but when I hit my 30th week it started to make me sick if people rubbed it! for real! I don’t know why but if someone touched or rubbed my belly for more than a few seconds I’d get very VERY nauseous. By the way did that happen to anyone else?? I don’t know what that was all about…

Dinkadoo on

Jessica wanted to set up a publicity stunt…

Kristy (mamax2) on

I doubt Jessica asked this! US Weekly has nothing else to write about.

black on

I didn’t let anyone (not even my husband) touch my belly.
It was my belly.

Scarlett on

I don’t think I would care if someone I knew of touched my belly but I wouldn’t want them kissing it unless it was someone close to me! I can’t picture Britney being all rude and saying “HELL NO!” unless she was saying it jokingly and then seriously just saying No. I’ve met her before she just doesn’t seem like she would unless she doesn’t like Jessica.

susan on

I have a hard time believing this one. It if it is true it is quite odd.

DS on

K-Fed said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show that this is 100% untrue.

Kelly on

Jessica was on a Philadelphia radio station this morning and said this story is NOT true. She said she went up to Brit and gave her a hug, but that was it.

Tracy on

I did not mind at all if my family and friends touched my belly, but no one did just because I was uncomfortable and hard hard pregnancies. But I would have gotten upset if some stranger asked to touch me. For me it’s a violation of my personal space. Being pregnant is special to me and I get all freaked out when someone tounches me in a way I don’t like and hands and lips all over my belly is just creepy to me.

Candice on

Maybe this will change when I actually get pregnant, but if someone asked to kiss my belly (As long as I knew them), I would say, “BRING IT ON!” That would be sweet and I would be honored that someone would want to do that. Of course, this is coming from the person that wants to run up and rub the pregnant belly of anyone I see. I don’t, of course. ;-)

Autumn on

I sort of doubt it’s true, plus it’d be pretty bizarre if it was.

I wonder what Jessica really did think of pregnant Britney? I mean Jess was married to Nick for almost 3 years, yet they didn’t have any kids (then their marriage ended), while Britney’s been married to K-Fed almost 2 years and will be having her second child on her second anniversary!?!

I have no idea if Jessica would’ve been jealous of Britney or feel sorry for her? Who knows?

(IMHO I think Nick and Jess could’ve been good parents too, at least as good or better than Britney & Kevin at times.)

Shelly on

I think Us Weekly may have exaggerated an encounter Jessica and Britney may have had. Perhaps US Weekly is a little bored? Anyway, I remember when I was pregnant it would drive me crazy when random people would touch my belly.

Dakota on

I never had anyone ask/want to kiss my belly when I was pregnant. (I find it odd, but hey whatever floats Jessica’s boat!)

And people outside of family were pretty good not to just grab at me.

The only incident I had was when I was 5 or so months pregnant. I had gone to my chiropractor’s appointment. As soon as he walked in the door he said hello ‘Wow I can finally see that belly of yours!’ And proceeded to ‘grab’ my belly and rub it.

Nice guy don’t get me wrong, was just weirded out totally by that. I brought hubby with to my future appointments while I was pregnant and he never did it again LOL..

KIM on

Brit knows how Jess has been “gettin around” and doesn’t want a transdermal contraction of what she might be carrying! Plus Jess has mocked Brit before, I remember on Newlyweds when they were watching Brit’s Onyx Tour on TV she was talking crap.

kk on

It’s Jessica Simpson!!! Come on! Who wouldn’t let her touch your belly? Who woulnd’t be thrilled by any decent famous person asking to touch your belly? And besides, touching someone’s belly is like your touching the baby. Like it or not.
Come on. It’s Jessica Simpson! And Britney has gone from entertainment diva to trailor trash. Why would Jessica want to touch that anyway?

gardenvilla on

I absolutely can’t stand Jessica Simpson, but I don’t think she’s completely crazy, and she’d have to be if this story were true. Asking to kiss the stomach is bad enough, but getting insulted because the answer was no? What would she expect? This story is ridiculous.

evi on

When I was pregnant with my 3-month old, only my husband was allowed to kiss my belly. I would even ask him to kiss it for me! I live 45 minutes from my parents & sisters so when we would visit, they would be all over the belly. That made me realize just how much my baby was adored already!

But before the belly was visible, I was uncomfortable when family friends touched without asking. Once the belly popped, I would offer my belly to anyone interested in feeling the baby hiccup!

Christina on

I dont know if its true or not…but its still sorta weird

annie on

You’re really cracking down on the rude comments you bitch so much about, I see. I guess calling Britney Spears “trailor trash” is okay if you agree.
