“Mixing business and family has blown up big-time for Jessica Simpson and her sister Ashlee!” begins a piece from the National Enquirer, which claims the sisters’ new teen clothing venture is tearing them apart.
A so-called “insider” for the tabloid reveals, “Jessica and Ashlee are butting heads over the direction of the clothes,” explaining, “Jess prefers girly frills like lace and flowers,” while her younger sister “wants a more punk rock look.”
According to the mag’s supposed source, “Their disagreements have set off a virtual World War III with them screaming at each other in front of underlings.”
“Jessica constantly throws her fashion success in Ashlee’s face,” continues the “source,” who says things have gotten so bad that Ashlee is “threatening to boycott” her sister’s wedding to Eric Johnson.
As in whoa, the mag couldn’t be any further off on this story.
A source close to the Simpson family calls the Enquirer piece “a joke,” and tells Gossip Cop the sisters’ new fashion line is “going amazingly well,” and that “they are having so much fun.”
