Last week, Jessica Simpson married Eric Johnson in a Fourth of July ceremony attended by Jess and Eric's closest family and friends.

Naturally, Jessica's father and former manager was on hand, and according to some reports he brought his much younger boyfriend, Jonathan Keith.

Sources say 55-year-old Joe's decision to bring 21-year-old Jonathan as his guest created major controversy at the reception, which isn't surprising.

"Jess' mom was hurt," one insider tells In Touch.

Joe and Tina Simpson divorced in 2012 after three decades together amidst rumors that he had been cheating on her with a number of much younger men.

Joe repeatedly denied that he's gay in the wake of his separation, but rumors of Simpson dating Jonathan Keith began to surface just months after he split from Tina.

When it comes to some of Hollywood's biggest and brighest stars, many of them are quick to thank their parents for unconditional support throughout the years.

Others, however, have tales of very public estrangement from their parents, their fathers in particular. Both make for interesting celebrity gossip stories.

Since it's Father's Day, we thought we'd take a look at 9 celebrities and their dads.

Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus
Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, has always supported his daughter's musical career, for good or for ill.

It's hard to find a more supportive father than Billy Ray Cyrus. Despite any and all of Miley Cyrus' crazy antics throughout the years, Billy Ray has stood by his baby girl. 

Since it was his career which introduced her to this life, he's probably making the right call by keeping any disappointments he may have to himself.

Is Joe Simpson in a relationship with hot young model Jonathan Keith?

Rumors have surfaced this week suggesting as much, and it's not hard to see why, given that the two have been seen frolicking in the Florida sand together.

Ashlee and Jessica Simpson's father divorced ex-wife Tina last April after 35 years, and while no official cause was given, Joe Simpson gay rumors followed.

Now he's photographing young shirtless men in Miami. So ...

Nick Lachey and brother Drew appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live last night, and his marriage to Jessica Simpson came up in amusing fashion.

The 98 Degrees frontman was put on the spot during a game called Plead the Fifth, where guests can take a flier on one question out of a set of three.

So what's the best part of no longer having Joe Simpson being your father-in-law? For Nick, it's having to worry about what's going on under the table ...

Drew's answer on his brother's behalf was "everything." But Nick's won ... anything that involves "Joe Simpson" and "grab ass" is pretty much a lock.

As for how long it's been since Nick and Jessica spoke, let's just say that he probably hasn't congratulated her on her recent engagement. In 2010.

Question is ... was Nick kidding? Or is Joe Simpson gay?

Jessica Simpson's parents Joe and Tina are officially divorced after 34 years of marriage. The judge put the final, legal stamp on their split this morning.

As for why they split? The speculation there only continues.

Tina cited "discord or conflict of personalities" when she hit Joe with the divorce papers in Texas last year, while he did not directly respond to his wife.

He did, however, respond to the Joe Simpson gay rumors widely reported in the media, calling tales of his trysts with a pair of younger men "ridiculous."

It's unclear who got what in the split, but hopefully it will provide closure for both, as well as Jessica and Ashlee Simpson, who it's been very hard on.

Tina Simpson penned a suicide note after finding out that her ex-husband Joe Simpson was having a gay affair, according to a shocking new report.

“Tina was so distraught when she found out about Joe’s secret, she immediately wrote a suicide note,” a source close to the Simpson family said.

Joe Simpson will serve as executive producer of daughter Jessica’s new NBC sitcom, but the two still aren't on speaking terms ... that's not awkward at all.

When the singer-actress-designer tapes the upcoming show, a semi-autobiographical comedy based on her life, Joe will not be on set, reports say.

Joe and Jessica Simpson

Just like when she filmed NBC's Fashion Star, Joe, who still serves as her manager, will be there to oversee production, but only if she’s not there.

The estrangement stems from the Joe Simpson gay rumors and the end of his marriage to Jessica’s mom Tina; they separated in 2012 after 27 years.

Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, her fiance and the father of her child(ren), are reportedly at odds, and the source of the friction may surprise you:

Joe Simpson.

It's not anything that Joe's done - at least to them - that has the couple arguing, but rather her treatment of the elder Simpson in the last six months.

Jessica wants nothing to do with Joe, 54, after his marriage to her mom Tina fell apart and he was rumored to be involved in a series of gay trysts.
