Jessica Simpson Distancing Herself From Meddling Dad

When consulted her father Joe about having children with hubby Nick Lachey, that was the last straw for the 98 Degrees singer, and now Jessica is taking steps to distance herself professionally from her meddling pop. “Both Nick and Jessica want a family, but Joe’s been dead set against it at this stage of their careers,” a friend told Star magazine. “He told Jessica, ‘You’ve got plenty of time before you start tying yourself down.’ Nick was outraged that Joe was involved in the discussion of when they should have children, – and he told Jessica so.” The insider added, “Nick and Jessica are really in love and both would do anything to make the marriage work. All they need now is for Joe Simpson to let them have their own lives and their own happiness.” Simpson now is looking for someone to handle management of her film career, while Joe will continue to handle her singing duties.

    Good, having families involved in your careers like that is just recipe for disaster.

    Nick shouldn’t have been outraged that she talked to her dad about it, that is something you talk to your parents about. But she does need to distance herself from him he’s costing her some good deals, she could’ve mad 20 million in Vegas but oh no, he demanded 30 then they took back the deal. And it is early and probably bad career-wise to start having kids now, now that her career has just started going really good.

    This is STAR magazine as the source, why are you all so fast to believe it? Besides one MAJOR fact was left out, JOE spoke to the magazine and was quoted as stating this is NOT TRUE, that Jessica is not looking for a new manager that he, will continue to manage BOTH singing and acting careers. Besides who’d want to manage her acting anyway, she’s worse as that than singing and her singing is pretty horrible these days.

    Mr. Simpson will never allow Jessica to have kids let alone lose control over her. He’ll be managing her career until the day he dies!!
