Jess Simpson ‘cries over father’

Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson’s father’s behavior is reportedly “tearing the family apart”.

The 33-year-old actress is preparing to marry her boyfriend of four years – and father to her children Ace and Maxwell – Eric Johnson.

As well as planning her wedding, Jessica reportedly has her family’s problems to deal with to ensure the big day goes smoothly.

Her father Joe divorced her mother Tina last year after rumors of him being unfaithful surfaced.

Earlier this month he was spotted partying in LA with US reality star Andre Soriano sat provocatively on his lap, and prior to this Joe was photographed sunbathing with 21-year-old male model Jonathan Keith.

With her dad’s new lifestyle seem to come problems, which Jessica is reportedly trying to solve.

“Jessica was looking at bridesmaid dress designs with friends and burst into tears when one of them asked what her parents would be wearing to her wedding,” a source told British magazine Closer.

“She says the situation with her dad is tearing the family apart and she can’t stand the pressure. Her mum isn’t coping well with Joe’s new lifestyle and Jess is trying to pull everyone together in time for the wedding this summer.”

It was recently reported Jessica cancelled her original plans to marry Eric in Capri, Italy, after they were spotted scouting venues last October.

Us Weekly claimed the pair are instead happy to have a “simple” ceremony in Los Angeles rather than having guests travel far.
