If Jessica Didn't Fire Rob, Who Did?

9/8/2006 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jessica Simpson, through Rob Shuter, issued the following statement to TMZ. "I did not fire Rob Shuter, he is a great publicist and a great friend." Shuter would not say, however, if it was untrue that he had gotten the ax.

As TMZ first reported yesterday, Shuter was apparently fired by the Simpson camp after stories intimating Simpson was involved with singer John Mayer surfaced last week. Simpson later refuted that story on "The View" and Mayer was reportedly upset that his name was used in conjunction with Jessica.

Shuter would not say whether or not he still represents the pop singer and would not comment any further.

notice "papa joe" in the picture. he's never far behind his meal ticket. he is a pimp in every since of the word. actually, he gives pimps a bad name. at least real pimps aren't hiding behind religion and self righteousness. papa joe should die of gonorrhea and burn in hell:)

Can't stand that weasel dad. She needs to break free from his influence and stand on her own two feet - NOW.

Seems as though "Back peddle" has become a staple in the Simpson family vocabulary.

Wonder if it was Papa Joe who "fired" him and Jessica is trying to fight back? Her dad is right there with her again at the MTV Awards. I hate when parents try to steal their kids' shine. Let the girl have her moment, and BACK OFF JOE!
