Jessica Simpson thinks Britney Spears is soooooo over. So 2002. Heck, she doesn't even consider Britney a competitor of hers anymore.
How do we know? She's even offering to help hook her up with her pimp (and father), Crazy Joe Simpson Inc., to help resurrect her career.
Jessica apparently offered to call Britney Spears to set something up for dad, who's been mulling taking over Brit's career ever since she axed manager Larry Rudolph.
Joe Simpson (below, left) tried setting up a meeting over the weekend, says a New York Post source, though a rep for Jessica Simpson denies that.
And Joe Simpson appears to be swooping in just as Britney's actual father - Jamie Spears (below, right, with Brit's mom, Lynne) - has been publicly trashing her for canning Rudolph, as well as blaming her for blaming him and her mother for her rehab-instigating troubles.Â
Or something. Jamie blasted her in an April 20 article in the New York Post, calling his daughter "out of control," the results were disastrous. The move pushed Spears (already angry about being forced into rehab) to the edge.
As a consequence, the walking train wreck "has cut everyone out of her life," a source says. "She says she doesn't want to see anyone from her past."
Meanwhile, Britney Spears' relationship with her mother Lynne - with whom she co-wrote two feel-good books, including 2000's Heart to Heart - has been strained from the moment she began dating Kevin Federline in 2004.
But it further deteriorated when Federline, 29, was given custody of their kids, Sean Preston and Jayden James, while Spears, 25, was in rehab - a good call, but one Britney Spears got pissed about and says was orchestrated by her mom.
"She feels her mother gave Larry Rudolph power: He handed her kids over to her ex," explains the source. "Britney loves her mom and they talk almost every day, but they aren't the most cordial conversations."
