Joe Simpson Interferes With Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo

Do You Think Joe Simpson Should Take a Step Back?

Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo looked happy over the weekend, but the rumors of trouble between them are far from over. We already heard that Tony got back together with Jess under the condition that Joe stop meddling and this week's Us Weekly takes it even further. However, Joe defended himself by saying:

“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? 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?"

While we'd like to think that Joe only has the best intentions, we've seen him get in the middle of Jess' relationships with guys like Nick and John in the past. What do you think — should Joe take a hint and stay away from Jessica's relationship?

Listen If Jessica wants another manager she should speak up and get one, if she doesnt like her dad being intrusive than she should grow up and tell him so, if she doesnt do that, i have no pity. I grew up with an overbearing, overprotective dad and I realized after moving out that I needed to be on my own, to fall on my face, so i cut off all monetary ties and maintained a good father/daughter relationship and told him that i needed my space, to let me make my own decisions...its a part of life! I know its different with her, because she is a celebrity but sometimes business and family dont mix, and when your love life is being ruled by your dad, its time to reevaluate.

There were whispers last year that Joe was one the reasons her relationship with John Mayer fell apart. Apparently he despised her dad.

I think we all know the answer to this question!! It's one thing to be supportive like he says he is, but he has definitely crossed that line into creepy territory!!

He ruined her marriage, officiated Ashlee's wedding, and sent in bikini pictures of Jessica. He really needs to step the fuck away. I don't care much for the Simpsons, but that guy is one creep!

I didn't read all the comments but US Weekly just got their a**es smacked. For the first time Jess spoke up about all the crap they are putting out there during a radio interview today. Good for you Jess.

He is so creepy. I really think he looks at his daughter in a way no father should. He always talks about their bodies and seems like a huge perv.

i hope that he is not meddling. that would be terrible considering that he has another daughter that isnt exactly living by the letter of the bible. i mean, seriuosly?

Papa Joe's interference isn't the problem, the problem is that he created a whiny, self-obsessed moron that looks like a man.

He DEFIANTLY should - its creepy - but it is also Jess's responsibility to tell him to back off.

I guess my question is if Joe Simpson is even HALF as meddling and involved in areas of his daughters' lives as people say, how could his daughters a) not be completely aware of it, and b) not tell him to back the f*ck off? Seriously, if it's true, he's partially responsible for ruining a marriage for Jessica, no? Either there is a very weird dynamic between him, Ashlee and Jessica (not to mention the mother, where is she in all of this?) or it's all been blown way out of proportion. But then, I think I've seen two episodes of Newlyweds in their entirety in my whole life, so what do I know?

I think Joe meddles more in Jessica's life than Ashlee's. he seems to do it on purpose, maybe so she never gets married and he'll always have his little girl.

Her father is way out of line when it comes to Jessica's personal life. He buts in to much and cause problem between her and every guy she is with. This is the reason she is not with Nick know. Nick was the best thing that ever happen to her and she will never find someone like that again. Her father is crazy to have advised her to divorce nick!

I think Jessica should fire him as her manager based on the fact that he has done nothing but ruin whatever career she has had. I actually do know for a fact that he has posioned a lot of opportunities for his daughters (mostly Jessica) due to his overbearing nature. It was recommended that she take vocal lessons with a well known vocal coach to help her get rid of the tweakiness when she sings and the poor enunciation. He said she was fine the way she is and didn't need any help. The girl has a lovely raw voice, but her mannerisms, enunciation, and breathing habits are poor and she would have benefited big time from the assistance. But Papa Joe knows best.

i do think that papa joe needs to take a step back and let his kids do what they want. they are adults, and his meddling really is getting in the way of not only their relationships but with work and everything else. he's one of those stage parents that just doesn't get it.

He is way to involved. Pick a role Joe-Dad who your daughter can talk to about relationships and other family-related stuff or manager who deals with her career and tries really hard not to meddle in other parts of her life. Pretty difficult as he can't change the fact that he is her father, so maybe he should stick to that! Good luck Tony!

Whoever TOny's manager is should tell him to get the heck out of that relationship. Most of his fans hate her, and I don't think enough people respect her anymore to really benefit his career...seems obvious to me

If their E! True Hollywood Story is any indication, the Simpons are a seriously screwed-up family. It seems like Joe has some kind of inappropriate fixation with Jessica, and keeps forgetting that Ashlee exists. Did you guys know that she was the youngest person ever admitted to the New York Ballet, but her parents basically made her quit so the family could pursue Jessica's career? That is messed up. No wonder Ashlee tries too hard now. Maybe it's Jessica's job to tell her dad to back off, but it's kind of hard to expect that of her, since her parents have controlled/babied her for almost 28 years. I think Joe is almost entirely at fault here, and also probably a pervert. I don't know them personally, but am from the same part of town, and have friends who knew the Simpsons growing up. The things they say back up my suspicions.
