The 52-year-old mom of the singer-turned-fashion designer, who manages The Dukes of Hazzard star’s Jessica Simpson Collection brand, wants to expand on its success with a flagship shop.
“Tina was looking at ways of expanding the Jessica Simpson Collection and one of her suggestions was launching a store,” a source close to the Simpson family told RadarOnline.com.
“The brand is hugely popular now, so she’s confident that by opening a shop with all of Jessica’s designs that will take the label one step further. But the problem is she’s hugely concerned about doing anything with the fashion house if, worst case scenario, Joe wins control over it in their eventual divorce settlement.”
The source divulged, “Tina has worked incredibly hard with Jessica in molding the label. It was her baby and had nothing to do with Joe.
“She doesn’t want to take any chances though and is thinking long and hard about the idea.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jessica has been telling mom Tina that she needs to start dating again following the aftermath of her divorce with Joe.
But there’s a catch… Jessica wants to vet out the potential suitors!
“Jessica thinks it’s about time Tina started enjoying herself and has urged her to date,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“She thinks it’s the best way to get over her heartbreak with Joe and she needs to get out there and meet other men. However, Jessica has told Tina that she will help her pick who she goes on dates with.”
