Jessica Simpson Misses Bronx's Birthday
Jessica Simpson skipped her nephew's birthday to avoid her dad.
The NBC Fashion Star mentor - who is pregnant with her second child with fiance Eric Johnson - reportedly failed to attend her nephew Bronx's fourth birthday as she can't stand to be in the same room as her father Joe.
A source told US Weekly magazine, "One of her girlfriends says it's because she doesn't want to be anywhere near her dad."
The 32-year-old singer is said to have been going out of her way to have minimal contact with her Joe, who is also her manager, since her parents announced their divorce.
A source previously said, "Joe has been respectfully turning up at NBC at times he knows Jessica won't be there, It's the only way that it could have worked, because Jessica is struggling to work with him around her.
"Jessica comes in, fulfils her work requirements and leaves, and then Joe comes in later to check in with producers and conduct any meetings that are needed.
"Jessica just doesn't want any awkward run-ins with him and doesn't feel comfortable with him being around her right now.
"At the moment, she hasn't quite forgiven him and is also considering new management when her deal with her dad expires."
