In the wake of recent celebrity news stories that he was the main source behind Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo almost breaking up (twice now), Joe Simpson tells Extra he's not the controlling father we think he is.
"The media says that I try to plan everything - If I had half of the power they give me... They [Ashlee and Jessica] don't call me and ask me. They call me and tell me," Crazy Joe told the celebrity news program.
He adds that Jessica Simpson "... is as happy as I've seen her in years." and gushes about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Romo, "He is such a great guy. I love Tony to death ... He's just a good kid."
Come on. Who wouldn't trust Joe Simpson, right?
Several sources reported that Joe Simpson asked Tony Romo, 28, to dump his agent and allow him to help represent him. As tension grew, the NFL star gave Jessica an ultimatum: Tell your dad to frickin' back off!
