Jessica Simpson has been all over the news recently, and not for the right reasons. While the 42-year-old has just been minding her own business and posting ads for Pottery Barn, her comments soon became flooded with comments from fans concerned about the "With You" songstress.

Now, the mom of three is speaking out against those who are making fun of her looks and sobriety.

Jessica Simpson is Pottery Barn's newest celebrity spokesperson and I want to make it clear I love this for both parties involved.

However, it's not the partnership that fans are having concerns over.

Rather, it was Jessica's behavior in the Pottery Barn collab video that is making fans wonder if the "Public Affair " singer is doing okay these days.

"Hi, I’m Jessica Simpson, and welcome to my daughter Birdie’s room, designed by Pottery Barn Kids and a little bit of me," the 42-year-old said in the video posted to her Insta on Thursday.

“I was really drawn to the geometric prints and the color scheme. This really, to me, is Birdie’s personality,” she said.

"Thank you everyone for checking out the adorable room of Birdie Mae Johnson," she concludes before the video ends.

The ad has caused many fans to worry about Jessica's health and speculate about what's going on because, you know, everyone on the internet is a medical expert.

"Wtf happened to her face. She can barely speak. Shame," commented one follower.

"Please tell me I'm not the only one that hears her voice being totally she ok?!?!" asked another.

"I’m wondering if it’s her facial treatments and Botox that doesn’t allow her lips to move? Although she does look ill. Well wishes," echoed someone else.

While most comments were coming from concerned fans, others were just plain mean and even went to far as to accuse the sober actress of being drunk.

"Is she drunk? Something seems wrong... she looks strange..cant put my finger on it," wrote one user.

"You sound wasted. Seriously slurring in this video. I wish someone would offer you help. It’s clear you need it," said another.

Sharing a video of herself in the studio, Jessica wrote an emotional caption directed at those who accused her of being drunk in the Pottery Barn video.

"I needed to be in my studio today because this is where I ground myself and heal. As much as I have learned to block out destructive noise…peoples’ comments and judgements can still hurt deeply with their incessant nagging “you will never be good enough”. The most important thing I have learned through the last 5yrs without alcohol being a guard for escapism, is that I CAN and ALWAYS WILL get through it."

"I am capable of pretty much anything I care enough about to put my mind to. I am present. I am deeply inspired. I am determined. I am honest. I care about other people."

"After grounding myself just now with my voice and the lyrics across my heart, I feel compassion for the opinionated hate that some people can so effortlessly just blurt out with such intensity on social media or in the media in general. We all have our days of wanting to be, look, do, and feel better."

"Nobody is alone with that feelin’ that I can promise you. I woke up at the same time anxious and insecure but also also angry and defensive — like some of you."

"I know what works for me and that is to let go and simply sing while lookin directly inside the mirror, straight in my eyes to really see and understand myself. I can connect with my heartbeat. I am stable and strong. I am home."

"A little advice…live inside your dreams and move through them. Don’t give up on yourself because someone else did."

"Stay true to YOU. It has worked for me in this chaotic life thus far. Nothin’ and nobody will rob me of my joy. Ya might come close but it is mine to own. Yours should be too," she concluded.

We're rooting for you, Jess!
