Jessica Simpson is having major family drama with her father, Joe Simpson, who also serves as her manager.
Jessica is having a hard time after learning of her dad’s gay romances and feeling angry that he betrayed her mother.
The 32-year-old singer and co-host of the reality competition “Fashion Star”, doesn’t want her dad to manager her career anymore.
But, Joe is still under contract to manager his famous daughter so they are having scheduling issues as he gives her time to deal with her feelings.
A source revealed, “Joe has been respectfully turning up at NBC at times he knows Jessica won’t be there. It’s the only way that it could have worked, because Jessica is struggling to work with him around her.
“Jessica comes in, fulfills her work requirements and leaves, and then Joe comes in later to check in with producers and conduct any meetings that are needed. Jessica just doesn’t want any awkward run-ins with him and doesn’t feel comfortable with him being around her right now.
“She’s still struggling to come to terms with Joe’s coming out, leaving her mom and his gay affairs and doesn’t want to work on re-building their relationship until she’s good and ready — and that’s not right now. At the moment, she hasn’t quite forgiven him and is also considering new management when her deal with her dad expires.”
Joe Simpson entered a no contest plea on Friday for his DUI arrest months ago.
Simpson will be required to attend an alcohol education class for three months and pay a fine in addition to being on probation for three years.
Sources close to Jessica Simpson reveal she is very angry at her father for betraying her mother Tina and doesn’t want anything to do with him right now.
