Joe, 54, has been working his way more and more into his youngest daughter’s life, and he’s seizing every opportunity to push Ashlee to make money, a source close to the Simpson family says.
Now that Jessica doesn’t want to be represented by him anymore, Ashlee, 28, has become Joe's main source of income and he’s desperate for her to get to work!
“It’s no secret that Joe favored Jessica over Ashlee when they were growing up,” the source exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.
“Jessica was always the more famous and most successful of the two, and made the most money for the family. So, for years Joe made sure Jessica got his full attention and Ashlee basically took the back seat and had to rely on mom Tina Simpson for support.
“But, now, Joe is doubling down career wise on Ashlee.
“Ashlee is Joe’s main source of potential income right now as Jessica doesn’t want him to manage her, and he is pushing her hard,” the insider divulges.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Tina, 52, is writing a tell-all book and has signed a secret, million dollar deal to spill the beans about her 34-year marriage to Joe and his sexuality, according to Star magazine.
“Tina was already planning on writing a book before her marriage to Joe crumbled, but that was going to be about her own life as mom to Jessica and Ashlee,” an insider told Star. “Now that idea has been shelved, and Tina is focusing on writing a tell-all about her marriage to Joe.”
