Joe to Jess: You Bettah Work!

1/2/2007 4:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Simpson and Jessica SimpsonPimp Daddy Joe Simpson is pissed that his paycheck, er, daughter Jessica, turned down a paying gig to party with John Mayer instead!

A source tells TMZ the family tiff started when Vegas' PURE nightclub contacted Joe to have Jess host a New Year's Eve party for what we are told was a large sum of money. Jessica wasn't interested in working on the holiday, says our source, and told Pops she wanted to spend a mellow New Year's sans glitz and glamour. With her recent Kennedy Center Honors debacle, film flop and tanking music career, the girl's had a rough year! An exhausted Britney Spears would go on to host PURE's festivities, until she fainted.

When Papa Joe found out baby Jessica's idea of a quiet night at home meant canoodling with Mayer at various NYC hotspots, the minister turned Svengali was livid -- not because she was with her new boy, but because she partied -- for free!

With Jessica reportedly not getting reimbursed for $15,000 in styling fees associated with her aborted Dolly Parton tribute, Joe is sure to have his little girl working double shifts in no time. Papa needs a new pair of shoes!

Jessica,

It's time your father reassumed his role of loving parent rather than greedy manager! There is a conflict of interest there. You are a grown woman now and you are intelligent enough to choose another manager who won't intrude into your personal life. Does your father look at you as his daughter or a "cash cow"?

It's time to cut the cord for your own emotional health and the future of any romantic relationship.

jessica simpson is a crappy singer anyways. if someone is actually willing to pay her for something she should do it before everyone realizes she is just boobs with no talent. her dad is a freak. if my dad talked about my chest size i would never speak to him again. the worst thing she ever did was get rid of nick, after all he was the only talent in that family.

Papa Joe is so consumed with money. He has a lot of nerve, even as a manager to tell someone that they can't take time off. You better grow up and think for yourself Jessica or you won't have a life. Take notice John Mayer and see what you might be getting yourself into. The Simpson family is messed up! I know Nick is glad he's off the chopping block.

One more thing...to all the commentors, please check your spelling. BUMB is spelled B-U-M. What's with the extra letter B?
It's CRASH AND BURN...not Crach. No wonder foreign countries think we are stupid as hell. We can't spell correctly. I hate to see your boss's reaction when you type up a business report and there so many misspelled words all over the report. Use a dictionary.
Thank you for your attention and have a nice day!!

Jessica's breasts are real, not plastic. Thank God for Mother Nature for creating perfection.
For the person who wrote that she has plastic breasts...either you are an A-cup female or a homo.
