London: American singer Jessica Simpson says she is scared of sharks and did not swim in the sea during a recent holiday on a yacht.
Simpson celebrated her 30th birthday last month in Italy where she stayed on a yacht, but she didn`t go to swim in the sea because she was too afraid of what might be lurking beneath the waves.
"I had a great birthday I had most of my best friends out in Italy with me. We got to have a yacht for three days, which is so not me, but I was like, `If I`m going to turn 30 then I`m going to live it wonderfully and have the best birthday ever.` So I did that for myself," femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.
"But the best part of the yacht was not actually jumping off it because I`m terrified of sharks. Everyone was like, `There are no sharks, there are no sharks! But all I could think of was that a shark would attack me, if there were one."
