Never thought you’d hear that one, did you? Sadly for you overweight peeps (cough, Britney Spears), Joe Simpson is impeding the path to good health!
Well, at least indirectly, according to a dude suing him.
Jessica Simpson’s pimp, manager and father has been hit with a lawsuit from a fitness company, Speedfit, for blocking the sale of a DVD starring Jessica.
After signing a multi-million contract, Jessica SimpsonÂ recorded a workout tape for Speedfit shortly before shooting her “breakthrough” role as Daisy Duke in 2005’s embarrassment to the film industry, The Dukes of Hazzard.
Jessica Simpson then changed her mind about doing the tape and Joe Simpson got involved to ban its release, Speedfit is claiming in its legal deposition.
Speedfit owner Alex Astilean has filed suit against Joe after failing to secure a $10 million settlement from his daughter last year.
“They are hurting millions of fat people in America!” Astilean tells Us Weekly. “I believe that very strongly. They held the video for years!”
Pierce Brosnan’s wife, Keeley Shaye Smith, had no comment.
