Jessica Simpson reportedly had to abandon her birthday plans on Tuesday after
the paparazzi descended.
To celebrate her 27th birthday, Jessica had lunch with five friends at the
Silver Spoon Beach house in Malibu and following in Lindsay Lohan's footsteps
from last week, planned to throw a barbecue in the evening for more family and
friends - but soon the beach outside the property was swarming with
A source close to Jessica told People magazine that they abandoned the beach
house and relocated to her parents' house instead: "It was a private party and
they wanted to keep it private."
"She was there with all of her closest friends and family. She had a great
time. It was great night."
But her celebrations couldn't go on until too late into the night - she had
to be up early to travel to an Army boot camp in Louisiana to prepare for her
new film Major Movie Star. A source revealed: "She left for Shreveport. She's
going to be in boot camp for two days to learn how to do Army drills and salute
properly and that sort of thing."
