Jessica Simpson is reportedly livid with Nick Lachey for bringing up her dad in less-than-flattering fashion in an interview on Bravo last week.
Nick shocked viewers of Watch What Happens Live on Bravo last Tuesday when asked about Jessica and the positives of their marriage imploding.
“The best thing about not having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law anymore is I don’t have to play grab-ass under the table on Easter Sunday,” joked Nick.
“It may not be [funny] tomorrow, but it is tonight,” he added.
In light of the rampant Joe Simpson gay rumors, which may have played a role in his divorce from Tina Simpson, Jessica doesn't see it that way.
In October 2012, around the time of the split, 21-year-old male escort Bryce Chandler Hill accused Joe Simpson of being gay and hiring him for sex.
According to sources, Tina Simpson penned a suicide note after finding out about Joe’s gay affair. Talent manager Joe has denied all the accusations.
He and Tina finalized their divorce this April, officially ending their marriage from a financial standpoint. For Jessica, however, the pain is still raw.
"Jessica was shocked and horrified that Nick said what he said," said a source.
"She’s really upset about it, that he would say that. Nick might have thought it was funny and he got a cheap laugh, but to Jessica, it wasn’t ... at all.”
“Jessica was disappointed that he would even speak about her at all. It’s been eight years since they were married and six years since they last spoke."
"Jessica doesn’t feel that Nick has a right to speak about her business."
Nick, who's now raising son Camden with second wife Vanessa Minnillo, hasn't spoken to her in “honestly, probably six years. It was like a lifetime ago.”
No apology or further comment from Nick regarding the diss.
