Jessica Simpson ran out of cash during a run to the border.
While appearing on "The Real" this week, the fashion mogul said she's living somewhat modestly while expanding her clothing brand. In fact, her credit card was recently denied while trying to pick up food.
"I am draining my bank account," she said. "I have no working credit card. It's OK. I will pay in cash. I went to Taco Bell the other day, and my card got denied. I'm on a budget, ladies!"
The Jessica Simpson Collection is reportedly valued at $1 billion, and Jessica has an estimated net worth of $200 million. Still, she's invested a lot of her personal money into her clothing line.
"With money, there's just so much fear attached to it," she said. "And I'm the person that you get mad at the blackjack table. I'll put it all out there if it's me that's driving the show because I believe in myself and I know what I can do. And I know that nothing will stop me, and if you try to stop me, I'll try harder."
The former pop star started the Jessica Simpson Collection back in 2005 and eventually sold the company to Sequential Brands Group Inc. Sequential ended up filing for bankruptcy, and Jessica and her mother, Tina, fought to regain ownership.
In November 2021, after a three-year battle, the mother and daughter duo regained control of the company that bears Jessica's name.
"I am truly humbled to reclaim 100% ownership of MY name and my brand," Jessica wrote. "It was a long journey getting to this point. I was told no, that brand ownership was out of the question, that I was not relevant enough, and I would never have 100%. My mom @tinasimpsonofficial and I remained steadfast, patient, determined, brave, and STRONG. TODAY we can look back and say we BEAT ALL ODDS stacked against us. We withstood the battle and today we CONFIDENTLY claim victory! The entire Jessica Simpson Collection belongs to us! #OwnYourself."
