John Mayer Feels Simpson Fury
John Mayer received a furious phone call from Jessica Simpson's dad Joe, telling him not to speak about her or contact her following his recent controversial interview with Playboy magazine.
Joe Simpson is said to have lambasted the 'Gravity' singer over his recent comments to Playboy magazine - in which he described the singer-and-actress as "sexual napalm" - and warned him never to contact, or even speak about, the blonde star ever again.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "Joe took it upon himself to call John up directly for a 'man to man' discussion. Joe didn't tell Jessica ahead of time because he knew she'd object.
"The conversation was pretty one-sided. Joe told John that he best not even think of uttering Jessica's name again.
"John put up a feeble defence - he tried to reason with Joe that he was praising Jessica, not insulting her. But no father wants to hear from an ex-boyfriend about how hot his daughter is in bed - and Joe told John as much.
"Joe told John to stay away from his family and man-up and apologise for his comments."
John - who dated Jessica for nine months until May 2007 - has reportedly attempted to make amends with his ex-girlfriend, but his efforts have so far been unable to win over her protective dad.
The source added: "John did email Jessica and tell her he was sorry if the interview offended her.
"But regardless of whether Jessica is willing to forgive and forget - Joe Simpson isn't ready to make amends. He's holding a massive grudge against John.
"But there's no reasoning with Jessica's dad. He didn't like John when Jessica was dating him and likes him even less now."
John recently broke down on stage over the controversy caused by the interview - in which he also used the word n****r and said he still loved former girlfriend Jennifer Aniston - insisting he just wanted to focus on his music.
