Simpson enrolled at the School of American Ballet in New York City in 1995, a year in advance, becoming the youngest person ever admitted to the school.
During this time, Simpson suffered from an eating disorder for about six months but received treatment from her parents.
When it comes to some of Hollywood's biggest and brighest stars, many of them are quick to thank their parents for unconditional support throughout the years.
Others, however, have tales of very public estrangement from their parents, their fathers in particular.
She is the daughter of Tina Ann (née Drew), a homemaker, and Joe Truett Simpson, a former psychologist and Baptist youth minister who works as Simpson's agent. Her parents were married in 1978 and filed for divorce in 2012. She attended the same schools as her sister: Prairie Creek Elementary and Richardson North Junior High.
In 1987, when Simpson was three years old, she began studying classical ballet.
Last week, Jessica Simpson married Eric Johnson in a Fourth of July ceremony attended by Jess and Eric's closest family and friends.
Naturally, Jessica's father and former manager was on hand, and according to some reports he brought his much younger boyfriend, Jonathan Keith.
After heavily drinking and abusing Adderall, Jessica’s brother demanded she check into rehab.
Allegedly, Jessica could be dishing the dirt on all of her boyfriends and hook-ups. On Bam Margera: “They drank a lot together, and Jessica will recount a number of wild times.” Christ.
At the time, we heard a little about what Jessica could possibly say about Tony Romo, John Mayer and her brief hook-ups with Jude Law and Dane Cook. Does Jessica even remember enough of her “relationship” with Bam to write about it?
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are both firstborns. They would be uncomfortable with anyone giving them orders or direction, especially in a romantic relationship.
Older brothers of brothers are the most take-charge people.
