Jessica Simpson has ripped her pants “every time” she’s performed at Madison Square Garden, femalefirst.co.uk reports. The singer has now taken to wearing a “skort” to prevent the embarrassing problem happening again.

Speaking ahead of a show in New York show last week, Jessica said: “Every time I’ve performed at Madison Square Garden, my pants have completely ripped in half.

“I decided to wear a little ‘skort’ — not a skirt, but some shorts just so they wouldn’t split.”
