Blame It On Poppa Joe

Daddy's to blame!

Us Weekly is reporting that Jessica Simpson's father, dadager Joe Simpson, nearly ruined her relationship with Tony Romo.

He's apparently the reason for the couple's brief split in May.

Seems like Poppa Joe wanted to cas$h in on his daughter's impending engagement to the Dallas Cowboys Quarterback.

Dad had planned to sell the exclusive on the engagement news, and, as we all found out, things took a very sour turn!

According to the report, Tony has given Jessica a final ultimatum.

She needs to tell dad to back off or he's gone.

As for Joe, he says “It’s unfair to criticize me for what every manager does for his or her clients. And in this business, where people can quickly turn on you, who better than a parent to be working for his children?"

Riiiiiight.

Joe adds, "A parent will always be there for his kids and never give up on them. I work hard seven days a week for my girls because I love them. Why in the world would I ever want to do anything that would hurt my children?"

What do U think? Should Poppa Joe butt out of Jess' relationships?

    Yes he should butt out if he ever wants his daughters to be happy.He needs to start acting more like a father and not always play the manager role.As long as he keeps this up Jess can say goodbye to Tony & any other man for that mater.

    102

    i think he needs to back off before he ruins his daughters life! it is about time he starts being a dad and less of a manager.



  3. 103

    he should butt out of pete and ashlees relationship too. fucking weirdo.

    Definately! And this man was a minister??? Some preacher, cashing in on his daughters' fame.

  5. Jessic says – reply to this


    105

    YES! He is downright creepy, always trying to pimp out scoop on his daughter's sex lives. The only way Jess will ever have a legitimate career is to dump daddy and get a real manager. I can't beleiee she hasn't realized this yet.

    I think it is about time Jess fired her dad and hired her own manager.

    the father better butt out! The last thing Tony needs now is MORE distraction from the upcoming season…

    108

    That man is truly disgusting. I believe that he believes he's doing right by his daughters, but if he really loves them as he says, he needs to step back, let them hire independent professional managers, and get out of the mix. He's ruining their chances for successful careers as well as happy marriages. He's NOT helping.

    109

    A little advice Tony……….she listened to her father over her husband Nick. Nothing is going to change.

    Be a man and decide if you want the girl or not. Stop with all your ultimatums. You know if you marry a Simpson girl, you will marry Papa Joe !

  10. Amen! says – reply to this


    110

    Well, I guess its time that one of them decide what role he's going to play for the rest of the show. Dad or manager? When dad is interfering with their relationships its time for DAD to gracefully, back out and let his daughter live. Find someone he trusts or at the very least, pray about it and let her be Jessica, not a paycheck. We all have to let our kids go at some point in our lives, so does he.

    113

    OK y'all let me get this off my chest once and for all , My dad is a great dad and he's a father first no matter what you all think . He has given up a lot for me and my sis.
    And as for me and Tony don't believe everything you read on here or in the tabloids its always half the truth .
    Tony and I are very happy :) and yes we took a break but that's all it was a break …..nothing unhealthy about that.
    Tony and my dad get along swell and is a part of the family.
    thank you for letting me vent I will give you more updates on my blog latter on today.
    by the way perez yes my family reads this so why print crap thats not true?? your going to get called out.

    I think that Jessica is an adult and she can decide what she wants her dad to do. It is upto her to tell him to butt out. He will always mingle in her business if she doesn't stand upto him!

    joe, you are her MANAGER. she is your CLIENT. you are working for HER. if she doesn't want you to sell a story then don't, you fucking money monger.

  21. pam says – reply to this


    121

    The problem is Jess's career is totally dependent on her private life being made public. The reality show is what made her famous. Until then her career was pretty mediocre. Joe made her a success by pimping out her private life. She even said that when she stopped talking to the press (the later stages of the John Mayer era) that it nearly killed her career. If she really wants to be happy she is going to have to draw a hard line not just with Joe, but with herself too.

  22. Anon says – reply to this


    122

    SHE IS 27 YEARS OLD!!! her fans…the few that she has left, and all these tabloids shouldn't have to tell her the obvious. She doesn't have a problem with her father, so why are people trying to tell her what to do? If she enjoys being an idiot then let her be an idiot.

  26. wow says – reply to this


    126

    Re: Jessic – If this really IS Jessica… I totally agree with you. HOWEVER, there actually IS something unhealthy about having to take a "break" from someone you haven't even been with very long. If you already needed a break after what.. 6 months.. how ever will u handle a real LONG-TERM relationship?

    Plus, stop broadcasting your personal business all the time and the media won't be so involved when u don't want them to be. You can't have it both ways. You got famous for putting your new marriage out there for the public, then got mad when things went wrong & u wanted PRIVACY. Same with Tony.. you gush about him in an interview, then get mad when people are up your ass when u break up…

    I'm from Dallas and I'd like to think the rest of the world is as sick and over ALL THE SIMPSONS as we are here. They're all fake and they insult our intelligence. We're not stupid- they're desperate for any attention and everything they do shows their desperation. If she plans on having any career from here on out she needs to get rid of her dad. Let him have Mr. and Mrs. Ashlee Simpson. He can keep Groban too. Good riddance!!

  28. Janice says – reply to this


    128

    I don't think that Joe has been doing such a great job with the careers of both Jessica and Ashley. I think that they should let him go and get another manager. Really, where are their careers? Most of their publicity is from the tabloids. They are pretty girls so they are in magazines. Let's face it, the singing isn't great, the acting sucks, they need someone to boost their careers. It's amazing to me that Joe used to be a baptist minister. He seems like a greedy guy and very money hungry. He should lay low and spend more time with his wife and less time trying to make a buck.

    he is an overbaring stage dad that needs to back off!!! neither of his daughters are really doing anything with their careers right now, and that's OK because they deserve to have a happy life outside of their career!!!! BACK OFF DADDY DOUCHE!

  31. OFCOUR says – reply to this


    131

    Of course he should butt-out, but he NEVER will. Jessica's "career" is only based on publicity - absolutely 0 talent. Do we REALLY think that IF (big-if) Tony get engaged to Jessica, that Papa-Joe is going to stay out of their business? NO WAY!

    everyone whose anyone knows that joe simpson is a tool and is slowly ruining his daughters' careers one step at a time. who'd wanna deal with that? just look at lindsay and orange oprah, look where they're headed…umm o ya, nowhere

    Tony Romo can do so much better than this! Why should he commit to a woman who will pimp out every aspect of his life? The Simpson family is gross.

    134

    Joe is simply a father looking out for his girls and his family, there is nothing going on here other than a manager doing his job. Obviously the girls back him because they stick by him.

    Papa Joe hated Nick and cried through the whole wedding. They couldnot find a photo of him smiling at the wedding. He is over the top and too controling and will stoop to anything to make a buck off of Jessica and Ashlee. He's not going to change. The whole family should move back to Texas since she's "country" now.
    They're all pathetic.

    142

    Jessica should have gotten rid of her father as manager long ago. Isn't he the one who told her not to sign a pre-nup with Nick. Nick got a big chunk of money from Jessica. In addition, she should had told him to stay out of her PERSONAL LIFE; if she wants advice she'll ask him for it.

    143

    I live in Dallas, Tx. I am from Richardson, a small suburb near Dallas. I went to church at the Heights Baptist Church with Jessica back in her "abstinance" singing days and High School at Pearce. He was and remains to be the creepiest person in the world. Her boobs were so big back in the day for our age and when she would sing he would be all over her covering up her boobs, and her mom was never around, so it would be the wierdest thing. Ashlee and Tina would always be in LA. or Houston for Dance. They were the creepiest family. I wish I could upload my church pics on here esp. the ones from youth group. they seriously were creeps.

    PLEASE Joe made up the whole breakup story to get Jessica back on the cover of the tabloids..I just can't believe he did it before Ashlee wedding.

    148

    He messed things up for her and Nick. And if she is not careful he will do it again, this time with Tony. It is up to her to give her Manager/Dad some boundries. It is also time for her CREEPY Dad to get a life, and stop trying to control his daughters, and their signifacant others.

  49. cocco says – reply to this


    149

    This same thing happened to Ashlee, with her boyfriend Ryan Cabrerra on her show. And then she stopped letting her dad control her love life, now she's happy and you never really see her with her dad as much as Jess.

    If you ask me all the Simpsons are gready, media and money hungry, I remember when Jessica first came out she was the sweet little girl from Texas, she wouldn't even show her belly button, now she practically lets her tits spill out of her clothes…I gues she learned real quick that sex sells. so in return she sold her soul for fame and money.

  52. True says – reply to this


    152

    Re: me – SO TRUE!!! I agree 100%, me. I saw that episode too and couldn't believe the nasty way he said that. Remember, though, that two seconds later when Jessica came back into the room, HE suggested getting help, doing a complete 180 on what he had just said to the mother. He wanted to look like the hero. He's a freak.

    Jessica NEEDS to grow the f' up and quite acting like a little kid.
    SHE'S 27 FREAKIN' YEARS OLD yet can't kick her Daddy to the curb.
    NEWSFLASH JESSICA: maybe your UBER, CREEPY father had something to do with you and Nick getting a divorce.

    The Simpsons are TRAINWRECKS waiting to happen.

    Jessica let a great guy go and she'll probably never get Nick back (sucks to be her).



  58. 158

    Isn't Poppa Joe the reason her marriage to Nick Lachey failed in the first place, if not then why did it?? Because supposively he wasn't making as much money as her.. it's all about money, money, money. It's good that Tony R. has given her an ultimadum, and she should take it & move on!

    Papa "pervert" Joe needs to get a life of his own and stop destroying Jessica's all in the name of $. That girl is forever going to be owned by him as long as her face keeps selling mags.

    "Should Poppa Joe butt out of Jess' relationships?"

    Really Jessica should kick her dad out of her relationships.
    She is an adult and if her dad won't "let her grow up", then
    she needs to force him to let her grow up.
    Sometimes parents are older, but not necessarily wiser.

    Pappa Joe has made MILLIONS for himself and his children doing these deals and wants to continue. It's time of Pappa Joe to retire and let his children live their lives. He introduced Jessica to Tony and must of thought he was in total control.

    umm i think jessica is old enough to make her own desizzes ppl need to stop blameing her father for her break ups. we all know shes selfish and only thinks about her self! i mean i seen that show she did with nick and she was so selfish she wouldnt even let him pick out a dog he wanted!

    Re: elicit – DADAGER! I love it. Momager, too. Now that Jess is a grown woman, her dad should go back to being her dad. Its one thing to have a blood-sucking greedy manager. Its quite another when the succubus is also your future father-in-law.

    To be honest and not nasty, I'm seriously staarting to believe Mr Simpson wants his slutty daughter for himself.
    He seems to be chasing away any and every man Jess gets with. Yet he's pleased with that goth dude daughter Ashlee has married. He could care less about poor Ash, just don't touch his Jess. He's a sick man. Way to pimp yo ho!

    192

    If Tony really loved her enough to marry her, then he would not take actions to leave her or give her ultimatums because of her Father. He would work on the relationship with her Father. This is not a relationship breaker if he's the one. …. Obviously Ashley's man can handle it.
