Papa Joe Simpson Screwed Nick Lachey Out Of $500,000!

| Filed under: Jessica SimpsonLegal MattersNick LacheyBusiness Blitz


This is juicy!

Yesterday, we mentioned how Jessica Simpson is getting sued for $10 million for reportedly not keeping up to her contractual obligations when shooting a fitness video back in 2005.

Luckily for us gossip lovers, the fitness company's owner, Alex Astilean, is speaking out about the suit!

He says in a new interview that they initially offered Jess AND hubby Nick Lachey $1 million to appear in the video. That's when Simpson's people, dadager Joe Simpson, said she'd do the entire video without Nick for $1 million.

Astilean says he never knew if Nick was even told of the offer (he definitely knows now!), but added that "We knew that Joe Simpson gets the percentage just from Jessica's work . . .We felt sorry for what we did by accepting the final offer, but we were in such a rush to come out with the video. For Joe to screw his own son in law for half a million dollars was still not enough, nor was the money from Jessica's side, because he wanted another Ferrari and was trying to get Jessica's trainer into the picture and force me to teach him the SpeedFit Routine."

And wouldn't you figure, turns out daddy Simpson was also the "agent" for Jess's trainer, Mike Alexander, and kept trying to get him in the video. Astilean says this is where the problems started - when he rejected the Alexander proposal.

So, in retaliation Simpson never gave the final approval for the video, even AFTER shooting it. And with no final approval, the video never got released, but Shady Jess and dadager still got paid.

Astilean adds, "What diabolic mind they had to shoot an exercise video for people to lose weight, but to never think about the millions of fat people who needed this video, knowing the entire time that this video would never be released. We are now in 2009 and they have dragged this out for so long they ruined the SpeedFit Company and put it in the worst financial crisis. All the assets we had vanished, we cannot afford a lawyer to litigate with them and they got me at the point where they want me to be, broke. All I was trying to do is make this country skinny and make me rich and famous."

  10. 10

    I hadnt really thought she gained much weight until i saw this photo. She really has!
    Still beautiful tho….poor thing. It's bad enough to pack it on but even worse when it's broadcasted on Fox news.

  11. 11

    I didn't even bother reading this shit. Anybody want to shorten it uo for me??

  12. 12

    I think Jessica Simpson has depression; hence the 25-30lb weight gain! It happens to NORMAL PEOPLE all the time, just ask Perez!

  13. 13

    wow it was like reading instructions for a vcr

  14. Sweet says – reply to this


    She's probably not the best choice to hawk and exercise video right now.

  15. 15


  16. 16

    Wow - If this is true, then her dad IS shady & GREEDY! How Sad!

  17. 17

    HOLY SHIT!!!!!! Ok this pic does make her look fat, damn!!

  18. 18


  19. 19

    Ah Hell No! She looks Booty-Licious!

  20. 20

    Lol… guy is not trying to appear as the pity one… lol lol… grow up you dick! If you where old enough to have a company and "think" that Jess was the best one for that then accept the consequences… whinner!

  21. 21

    & Y'know — yes, it's mean for us to criticize her for pigging out during the Holidays (I did it too!) but then again, she WANTED this life, she WANTED to be famous. Unfort, it comes with the territory.

  22. 22

    Thank god HARRYBALSAC didn't comment… obnoxiousss

  23. 23

    fuck the media, one day shes too skinny so she gets healthy and now shes called fat. she looks hot and curvy to me

  24. 24

    Shit Mario, your head alone weighs as much as ol' Jess.

  25. 25

    what would joe simpson do if he lost his job?
    kill his family like everyone else these days

  26. 26

    That's just what happens to someone who is talentless. She made her money off of Newlyweds and now, she's a fucktard…..well, she always was that !

  27. 27

    nick is a dick head he deserved it plus he's short ewwwwww

  28. 28

    …..and PUH=LEASE do something with those nasty extentions ! The Farrah look is out !

  29. yayo says – reply to this


    the girl is only 5'3 so if she gains 10lbs u better believe it shows! leave her alone she's still as gorgeous as she ever was and for someone to say she's depressed thats crazy. u don't know her life. there is nothing fat about that, anybody can take a bad picture and look heavier than they are. and of course the media is gonna show that one

  30. 30

    When are you shooting your exercise video Perez? I'm sure everybody will run out to buy it at Hot Topic Haha - Penche Pera Puerqa

  31. 31

  32. 32

    is that pic photoshopped?

  33. 33

    she is a fat pig….and asslee takes it in the ass….


    you see they dont dream about being famous their only concern is:


  34. 34

    stopping making fun of jess, she looks great, like a normal female should, so FUCK OFF perez, you're still a fat fuck.

  35. 35

    i thought she was skinny until i saw this picture……what happened??

  36. 36

    Joe Simpson is a money hungry douche, and he calls himself a christian! HA! When Tony Romo goes broke, he'll make Jess dump him.

  37. 37

    HOLY SHIT SHE IS HUGEE!!!!!!!!!!

  38. ktp says – reply to this


    she has gained weight, but still looks better than i ever will.

  39. 39

    I like how the fitness company owner addresses his overweight audience as "fat people".

  40. 40

    HA! That company should invest in a lawyer somehow, b/c right now they sound ridiculous!

  41. 41


  42. 42

    I think she's def put on weight, that's for sure… but I also think this outfit does nothing positive for her… her wardrobe person should be spanked.

    I think it will come off quick because but the fit and sixing of this outfit, it seems she's not excepting a bigger size wardrobe…

  43. 43

    There's some PRETTY FUCKING IMMATURE people on this site.

  44. 44

    fix* and sizing* btw… im not looking what i type before submit…

  45. 45

    oh my word. the other picture with that outfit, i swore it was the outfit, but she is getting chunky. kinda makes me feel better about myself!!!

  46. 46

    If she had worn something different that wasn't so tight she would have looked so much better!

  47. 47

    Re: Pixiepereira – shady or smart as fuck with no conscience?

  48. 48

    Yo, Perez… if you're going to be a shallow bitch and put down women on this site, let's start with the so-called "fat" people you actually LIKE.
    For instance, how about that lovely mentally disabled young woman Kristina Chen (sp?) who writes all of those songs and sends them to you?
    According to YOUR pathetic standards, she's a FATTIE. Right?
    It's becoming rather obvious that you are a pick-and-choose judgemental FREAK of nature who deserves, in my own humble opinion, to REAP the karmic bullshit you sow.
    Can't wait until Zac Efron walks up to you and calls you a ridiculously stupid FAT FUCK.

  49. 49

    … And she is still more beautiful than most of you !!

  50. 50

    not to mention, now that Jess has ballooned up, who on earth would believe the video works????!!!!
    Oprah?? :)

  51. 51

    in the real world Jessica is not fat but in hollywood she is huge. even if we like it or not that just the way it is.

  52. 52

    Can't wait until all of you shallow idiots on this site get some instant karma.
    Where's the soul? Where are the hearts of human beings?
    Here, you get shallow skanks, and losers with low IQ's who think they're so fucking cool for putting other people down.
    I hope y'all get trashed right the fuck back some day for your APPEARANCE, so you know how it feels, and just how terribly it damages people's self-esteem.

  53. 53

    ps) and she better get back on that 'chicken of the see' diet again!!

  54. 54

    she really doesn't look bad at all. healthy. gives women something to look at and not have to feel bad abotu them selves because they aren't a size 2. good for you, jess

  55. 55

    Re: genetliam
    Thank you. :) I agree. Jess is a beautiful young woman, period.

  56. 56

    Re: snyper
    And speaking of shallow skanks…

  57. 57

    Jessica Simpleson is gross. What a lardass! I have no patience for famewhores who call themselves "curvy" because they have no control over what their hand shove into their mouthes. Wanna be in the spotlight? Eat celery and get colonics. That's what people pay you to do. (also, isn't it awesomely pathetic that she is performing at a chili cookoff? catch a falling star!)

  58. Merab says – reply to this


    Gosh…that picture is even worse than the first one

  59. 59

    I don't care for her, but as an actual fat girl I know it's just not a flattering outfit. She's gained some weight, but she's not anywhere near being "fat." She looks fine as is. And if she did get fat, that's no reason to ridicule her. Her crappy singing provides enough material. I wish people would just get past the idea that if you aren't completely perfect something's wrong. How long ago was everyone saying that she was too skinny? Now she's too fat. Jesus Christ, it happens.

  60. 60

    Why are your American Dreams always fat when they out of work?
    The days they have a job, they are too skinny.
    Maybe she needs a good man that kills her calories!

  61. 61

    Re: LeeLers LURVES Bruce Campbell
    And speaking of losers with low IQ's…

  62. 62

    OMG. 1st of all this outfit looks nutzo!
    and 2nd of all… why is Jessica fat?
    That belt looks crazy! Was that belt supposed
    to make her look smaller? UM not working! Get into the gym girl!
    You're supposed to be a pop star!

  63. 63

    Can't stand the Simpson family. Especially Joe. What a loser

  64. 64

    Joe Simpson sure has come a long way from teaching the word of God. The bible says, it's easier for a camel to fit through the eye of the needle than a rich man to get into heaven. The way JS lives his life is such a disgrace with his watches and cars. You better seek the Lord, JS, because you are going to get God Smacked! You are an absolute disgrace!!

  65. 65

    Hahahahahahah cry me a fucking river "speedfit" that's what you get for working with FAT, inbred, hicks.

  66. 66


  67. 67

    Ha, ha.. Their greedy ways are catching up with them and yeah, maybe her size is not what we would consider fat but boy, has she ever gained a lot of weight! She looks bloated!
    Too much eating out with Tony and too much beer drinking!

  68. 68

    This Alex Astilean was in WAY over his head before he even got involved with Joe Simpson. You never sign a contract that gives that much power to another party, and you also NEVER pay someone so much $$$ to shoot a video that it jeopardizes your company. Dude needs to take a Biz 101 class and pay close attention.

  69. 69

    OK first of all anyone can look fat in a picture, this is simply a bad shot.

    EVERYONE is an idiot if they cant see that.

    Second her hair is nappy she needs to cut it short or take out the extensions.

    3rd high wasted jeans make ANYONE look fat.

    4th i bet shes only 130 tops! think about it cameras put on the lbs.

    and Perez your fat so shut up!!!! are all GAYS this hypocritical?

  70. 70


  71. 71

    Re: uncle eldon – I dunno your….[insert close female relative here]? :/

    Whatever. Anyway, WHO CARES? Seriously all this flack you keep brining on her is like your own personal ticket to be catty. How lame. There are tons of other things to be talking about.

  72. 72

    she looks horrible not saying she is fat but….
    i just think her outfit is hideous and makes her look fat

  73. 73

    OMG!!!! i thought that was beth from dog the bounty hunter
    geez she really let herself go
    i hope she doesn't pull a delta burke

  74. 74

    She looks like a 40-year old MILF wannabe out for a night on the prowl in some little hick town. If Jessica had brains she would have dumped Joe Simpson as a manager years ago…after divorcing Nick. In fact she should have dumped her stylist, hair dresser and all the other syncopants that have led her down this disasterous path. Since she have only a modicum of intellectual horsepower and will never GET IT, her best bet is to marry and move to Dallas. But beware of Romo…he has "failure" written all over him.

  75. 75

    Re: LovinPerezHilton5

    5th, she's just fat

  76. 76

    Re: snyper – ITS SEA NOT SEE STUPID

  77. 77

    Re: LovinPerezHilton5 – 130 for a 5'3 girl is way over weight. I am 5'2 and 108 ibs. So if Jess is only an inch taller than me and weighs 20 plus pounds than me…..wow.

  78. 78


  79. 79


    Lose all the fake stuff, extensions boobs tans etc.
    Get as far away from your loser father as you can.
    Get a job, not singing not acting…..we can't take much more.
    Send JOE to a shrink and then to the unemployment line.

  80. 80

    Are we surprised? Joe Simpson sold his daughters marriage (a Sacrament!) for $$$$$. There was no way her marriage would survive with the entire world watching (the Newlyweds). All those lost private moments that build a strong marriage were compromised - and Joe knows this.

    Nick Lachey - I'm on your team! So Sorry you had to mingle with such evil folks as the Simpson family.

  81. 81


  82. 82

    this just is the worst outfit ever……puh, that makes me think of the way she looked in "these boots…" omg.

  83. 83

    she needs to wear TWO belts to hold that belly in! her tits are look huge!?

  84. 84

    Re: kcee22 – wtf 130 for 5'3 is not fat you idiot!!!! i weigh 109lb and an 5'3 if i gained 21 lbs thats really not that much, esp if you have boobs and booty

  86. 86

    If ever you are going to do business with 'good christians',
    It's a lie and a smokescreen!
    Whenever I think of the people who ripped me off, to the last they
    were claiming to be good christians.
    Or farmers. Farmers are the most lying con artists out there!
    so the worst would be christian farmers, like the Simpsons

  87. 87

    jesus you people are relentless…everyone sh$% on britney when she went through her hard time and now thats shes back ontop(which i new she would be)everyone loves her again
    leave jessica alone shes HUMAN..i think its refreshing to see someone that isn't anorexic looking…america has such pathetic standards especially towards woman and im the least bit of a feminist but come on…u know shes just gonna get really skinny again and get on the cover of all these magazines…its all a ploy for fame

  88. 88

    At the end of the day Joe Simpson is all about making money. He is a pretty hard out business man so does this shock me,no not in the slightest.
    I liked Jessica when she came out as she was different, she was quiet and pretty with an amazing voice. After the whole "im st-oo-pid" charade and then watching her on Ellen the other day (she sounded like a different person, knowledgable even) im losing time for her -whether shes fat, thin, screwing a cowboy or not!

  89. 89

    seriously, though…?!
    WHYYYYYYYYY would jessica even WEAR an outfit like that?!
    she actually does look horrible.

  90. 90

    If you think jessica simpson is fat, you have some serious weight issues of your own that must be dealt with.

  91. 91


  92. 92


  93. 93

    Enough of these photos with those damn pants. The poor girl is going to be haunted by those pants for life!

  94. MP says – reply to this


    I can't believe Joe Simpson was ever a minister. He's beyond shady.

  95. 95

    Too late now? Even with a wide angle lens you won't be able to get all of her into a shot? Holy Moley what happened to her body??

  96. 96

    I won't call her FAT but I'd be scared to death to fight her for the last Pork Chop at dinner?

  97. 97

    Geez, can anyone do themselves in more than this bimbo? Yikes, her boobs look huge and check out all the extra fat hanging from her armpits!

  98. 98

    karma is a bitch. sorry, but they got what was coming.

  99. 99

    Oink Oink

  100. 100

    That is an unforunate outfit. Those pants and hte belts need to go
