Word has it that Joe Simpson is looking to add Britney Spears to his list of clients, in addition to his two daughters. Back in the day, Jess and Brit-Brit were considered to be direct competitors, but Jessica has buried the hatchet and even went so far as to suggest that she put in a call to Britney to convince her of the notion that Joe should be managing her career. From the New York Daily News:
Insiders even credit Joe’s guidance for helping the sisters avoid the excesses that sent Spears to rehab at the urging of her family, doctors and manager, Larry Rudolph. Spears, attributing her behavior to postpartum depression, left rehab and fired Rudolph, for which her estranged father, Jamie, blasted her last week.
The job remains open. Spears’ spokeswoman wouldn’t comment.
Oh, well, that would make sense. I mean, if Joe decided to give his trademark compliments about Britney’s boobs, it wouldn’t be weird because he’s not actually her dad, right?
