Can this be true? Can BFF’s Jessica Simpson and Ken Paves have hit a rough patch?
A source close to Jessica Simpson tells E! that the once best friends are “over”. They had problems over the summer, and Paves is no longer speaking to Simpson over “something petty.”
“They’ve had a major fight,” the Simpson insider tells E! News. “Jessica’s devastated over it, she loves Ken. He just won’t speak to her at all.”
Simpson tried to make amends, even inviting Paves along to her 30th birthday party in Capri in July, where she brought along her family, girlfriends and new boyfriend Eric Johnson for a relaxing getaway.
Paves, who was always Jessica’s shoulder to cry on though her many loves and losses, turned her down.
“She was so upset,” says the source.
Along with some other drama, Jessica is said to be upset that Ken has been tweeting his love for his other galpal, Eva Longoria, calling her his “best friend.”
“Jessica was heartbroken, they were so close. Maybe one of them will come around,” the source says.
I secretly love watching the two of them. I watched ever episode of Jessica’s VH1 show Price of Beauty and they were hilarious together. They’ve also collaborated on Paves’ clip-on hair extensions, Hairdo.
He insists there’s no rift between the two, telling E! News he’s been unable to travel to see her because of projects.
“Jessica and I are definitely still friends. Jess is very supportive of my other relationships as I am of hers! The truth is we have both been busy and on different schedules,” he says. “I know Jessica is very excited for me! I’ve brought her dad Joe on to manage these projects. It’s all in the family! We are all definitely still friends…”
