Jessica Simpson’s dad takes to Twitter to try and squelch latest gay gossip

The father of Jessica Simpson says photos taken of him and a good looking young male model have been blown out of proportion.

Joe Simpson, 56, has taken to Twitter to respond to the gay rumor chatter that surfaced over Valentine’s Day weekend when numerous photos of him and a 21-year-old model on the beach in Florida surfaced.

‘More mis-information in the news,; Simpson tweeted. ‘The guy in the pics is my modeling Client. He was in Miami taking agency meetings. That’s it!!’

The photos, taken on Miami’s South Beach, show the pair relaxing and several show Simpson taking photos of the model whose name is Jonathan Keith.

Simpson had previously managed daughters Jessica and Ashlee.

Last year, Simpson divorced his wife of 35 years amid persistent gay rumors.

The rumors were further fueled when his former son-in-law, Nick Lachey, said on the Bravo show Watch What Happens Live that the best thing about not having Simpson as a father-in-law anymore was ‘I don’t have to play grab-ass under the table on Easter Sunday.’
