Sadly, Jess and Joe's estrangement might deepen with new reports surfacing that the 32-year-old star recently sat down with her dad to cut current business ties -- he was previously her manager in affairs that related to her music and television career. However, the singer allegedly told her father she wants to focus on her fashion and style lines, a side of her business that has always been managed by Tina.
If this report is true, it certainly seems that Jessica is taking her mother's side in the divorce. Adding insult to injury, Joe, a former Baptist minister, was also recently arrested and charged with a DUI.
With an infant daughter to attend to and reportedly another baby on the way, Jessica certainly has her plate full when it comes to family matters. Here's hoping 2013 finds the Simpsons repairing the shattered shell that was once a close-knit clan.
