I'm saying it - Jessica Simpson seems like someone who knows how to have a good time.

The billionaire businesswoman was celebrating her 37th birthday on Tuesday night and it all started off so well. She and husband of three years Eric Johnson went for a nice dinner just the two of them to celebrity hotspot Craig's in West Hollywood, but by their not-so-graceful exit at 2am, things got a little messy.

Simpson, who I will always remember for her glorious rise to mainstream fame in 2003's Newylweds, had dressed the part - a semi-sheer black knit with skinny jeans and a studded crocodile skin tote on her arm. But by the end of the evening, swarms of paparazzi had surrounded the venue and one even helped her as she tripped making their way to the car.

Insiders have consistently denied tabloid claims that Simpson has a problem with drugs and alcohol, prompted by an awkward interview with Ellen DeGeneres in May. Earlier this year, sources told Gossip Cop there was no truth to reports she had any addiction issues.

With a booming lifestyle empire and a personal net worth of an estimated €150m, the former singer doesn't have much to worry about these days and is often making headlines for sharing loved-up (and NSFW) snaps with her husband or family photos of their children Maxwell Drew (five) and Ace Knute (four).

You're more likely to find her sharing family updates on social media than being pictured in LA or New York and rarely gives more than a handful of interviews per year. She credits her fun-loving attitude to her long term success (we first met her in 1998) and when she was asked what she wants people to think when they hear her name, "Just that I’m your friend."

And Jessica has never been shy about sharing advice for a long-lasting relationship as they remain in love as ever after seven years. "I think the secret to a beautiful, loving marriage is just making out. Don’t forget to kiss. It's more intimate sometimes for a lot of people and if you forget that, you forget why you fell in love in the first place. It always begins with a kiss," she told People.
