The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

If Jessica Simpson's 52 year-old father plays sugar daddy to 21 year-old wanna-be model Bryce Chandler Hill, does that make Bryce and Jessica estranged siblings?
Yikes!! We don't think we want to know!!
Regardless of how one might draw that family tree, it turns out Joe Simpson likely showered Bryce with lavish gifts behind everyone's back!!
And he drew cash from a bank account he shared with his wife Tina Simpson!!
A source close to the extremely messed-up situation reveals:
"Soon after Joe confessed that he was having an affair with Bryce, Tina wanted to retrace his steps. She asked David, who looks after their business ventures and their joint account, to look at what transactions Joe had made. Over a 12-month period, Tina saw that Joe was splashing thousands of dollars in designer stores in New York and Los Angeles, staying in luxury hotels and buying tickets for concerts. They were secret purchases he had made without telling Tina! What was worse, the money that Joe had freely spent on Bryce was from a mutual account he shared with Tina. She was livid, so asked him what he spent it on and he admitted he was gifting Bryce. But Joe wasn’t finished. He later withdrew $1.5 million from that account after confessing his sins and claimed it was for investments. Tina’s not sure what to believe anymore."
So was Bryce in love with Joe too?!
Not even a little bit, it seems.
The kid did it for the money. And the toys. And even the notoriety!!
The source confirms:
"Bryce is desperate to become famous, he’s done lots of modeling shoots and wants to become an actor. When he met Joe, he knew what a good job he had done in managing Jessica and Ashlee's careers and wanted a piece of the pie himself. But the sad thing is, he mocks and laughs at Joe behind his back. He doesn't care for him in the same way Joe does for Bryce. Bryce has been boasting about this for months, but no one believed him at the time."
We aren't sure that's the wisest way to get famous, Bryce!!
And this probably isn't something you should boast about if you hope to be taken seriously in the modeling industry!!
