Jessica Simpson’s father reportedly blasted John Mayer in a furious phone call.
Joe Simpson is said to have lambasted the ‘Gravity’ singer over his recent comments to Playboy magazine – in which he described the singer-and-actress as “sexual napalm” – and warned him never to contact, or even speak about, the blonde star ever again.
A source said, “Joe took it upon himself to call John up directly for a ‘man to man’ discussion. Joe didn’t tell Jessica ahead of time because he knew she’d object. The conversation was pretty one-sided. Joe told John that he best not even think of uttering Jessica’s name again. John put up a feeble defense – he tried to reason with Joe that he was praising Jessica, not insulting her. But no father wants to hear from an ex-boyfriend about how hot his daughter is in bed – and Joe told John as much. Joe told John to stay away from his family and man-up and apologize for his comments.”
John – who dated Jessica for nine months until May 2007 – has reportedly attempted to make amends with his ex-girlfriend, but his efforts have so far been unable to win over her protective dad.
The source added: “John did email Jessica and tell her he was sorry if the interview offended her. But regardless of whether Jessica is willing to forgive and forget – Joe Simpson isn’t ready to make amends. He’s holding a massive grudge against John. But there’s no reasoning with Jessica’s dad. He didn’t like John when Jessica was dating him and likes him even less now.”
