Jessica Simpson had an embarrassing encounter with a fan, choosing to recount the episode on Instagram. The 43-year-old singer, now an entrepreneur in the fashion field, said she was approached by a person looking for autographs. Except that she, that same person, she thought she was faced with… Britney Spears!

“The face of when someone in the Shopping Mall Parking Lot asks you for your autograph, but expects you to sign it Britney Spears,” joked Jessica Simpson. Next to her is her daughter Maxwell Drew, 11: both show an exaggeratedly shocked expression, commenting on what happened.

Furthermore, both have brought on reality shows together with their former partners: Jessica Simpson in Newlyweds: Nick and Jessicaon MTV, Britney Spears in Britney and Kevin: Chaotic.
Britney, however, joked about that last December similarity: “Why do I look exactly like Jessica Simpson? Even my face looks so pale” she wrote at the time, posting a selfie in which she particularly resembled her colleague.
