According to TMZ, Crazy Joe Simpson is pissed off that his
golden paycheck daughter Jessica turned down a paying, singing appearance - to party with new boy toy (and certified ass clown) John Mayer.
A source says the family tiff began when Vegas' PURE nightclub - yes, the sight of many amusing Britney Spears pictures from New Year's Eve - got in touch with Joe about his eldest daughter hosting a New Year's Eve party for what TMZ says was large sum of money.
Only Jessica Simpson wasn't interested in working on the holiday, says our source, and told Crazy Joe she wanted to spend a mellow New Year's Eve, sans glitz and glamour.
In turn, Britney Spears went on to host the event in her place, and either got sh!tfaced and passed out or simply fell asleep, depending on what you read.
Papa Joe capitulated, but when he discovered Jess' "quiet night" meant canoodling with John Mayer at NYC clubs, he was livid - not because John Mayer is a complete douche, but because she partied instead of making dad some ca$h!
With Jessica bailing on the Kennedy Center Honors and not getting reimbursed for $15,000 in fees associated with her aborted Dolly Parton debacle, Joe is sure to have his little girl working double shifts in no time. Indentured servitude, here she comes.
Ol' Pappy needs a new Ferrari, after all - and we all know that Ashlee Simpson isn't exactly the cash cow of this family. On the contrary, she's a worthless cow. Even after all that plastic surgery Joe paid for. Truly a shame.
