Joe Simpson’s Sunbathing Buddy Is His “Client”

Joe Simpson has firmly kind of denied reports that he is romantically involved with the young man he was seen relaxing with on Miami’s posh South Beach. Photographs that surfaced Tuesday show the two men sunning themselves, Simpson sucking on a vape pen and taking snapshots of his younger companion spread out on the sand and frolicking in the surf.

The 55-year-old father of entertainers Jessica and Ashlee, sent a message from his Twitter account in an attempt to clear up any misconceived idea you might get from the pics.


This isn’t the first time gay rumors have swirled around the former minister, who recently ended his 35-year marriage to Tina, after tabloids reported he had privately come out as gay to his family. In 2012, a gay male escort shared the alleged details of his three-hour, $600 love sesh with Simpson, claiming his “insatiable appetite for sex…never really tired.”

    Isn’t it the other way around?

    Oh god PLEASE let Wendy Williams talk about this in her Hot Topics segment.

    is “client” what chicken hawks are calling it these days?

  • xzall

    Joe’s ‘client’ is a 21 year old man from Scotland so he’s of age.

  • Tracy Pope

    The photos seem to present Joe Simpson as the client. Of course I could be misinterpreting them – just like Joe Simpson says…

    As long as all are consenting adults, what’s the harm here. I’m at that age now that I would be considered a “troll” in the bars so I don’t go any more. Cruising the parks went out in the 80’s (for me anyway), church is out because religion is ridiculous, Grindr (forget about it). So every once in a while I hire someone to scratch that itch I can’t scratch myself. The last 5 years it’s been with the same person. Once a month he comes over, we have a day of it, and he gets his rent paid. So what. No one is hurt.

    @Harley: Woud you be considered a “troll” in a bar if you were with another man your own age?

  • Mezaien


    Who is Joe Simpson??.

    @Harley: no judgement meant. Try bear chaser sites. There are a number of twinks or younger guys into older men, if that is your thing. Bear culture is a lot more open to different body types and age over other gay groups. Give a try and maybe have a real relationship with someone who loves you. The money you save might be used for your wedding.

    Interesting since he isn’t a modeling agent. And even if he was, actual modeling agents hire real photographers to take photos of their clients for their portfolio.

    And didn’t George Reckers claim that the escort with him was a “Luggage Carrier” ;)

    @Scribe38: I have tried such sites and organizations in the past and have always met up with Crazy McCrazies and chronic McDruggies. Gave up on that scene as well. I guess I fell into a comfortable situation with a reasonably sane person even tho he IS married with a couple of kids but that’s okay with me.

    This whole mess is just hilarious!
    Strangeness factor:
    Real life > fiction

  • NJjoe

    Ummm…Okay Joe. Whatever you say. Actually, it’s his decision to come out

  • mz.sam

    Honestly, its not ex-Baptist minister and youth counselor/mentor, Joe Simpson’s insatiable appetite that’s in question here…its with whom this famous Daddy is sharing his creampies with. Anyway, they’re only just ‘modeling clients’.
