Jessica Simpson Says the Way John Mayer Talked About Her Was ‘Disrespectful’


Both Jessica Simpson and John Mayer have made public comments about their former relationship. Some have been respectful; others, not so much. Last year Simpson opened up about her ex in her memoir, Open Book, and while promoting the new paperback edition of it on the Tamron Hall Show, she shared some more tidbits. Specifically, the singer and fashion mogul said she doesn’t feel she’s owed a public apology from Mayer for the things he’s said about her to the press. (In a 2010 Playboy interview, Mayer said of Simpson, “The girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually, it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm.”)

“I definitely don’t feel that I am owed a public apology,” Simpson told Hall in a clip obtained by E! Online. “You can’t take it back. And I’m a very forgiving person, but I’m also honest. So, in the memoir, if I’m gonna talk about stuff that caused me pain, I’m going to be honest about it. And that was a time in my life that I was very manipulated and very also in love, or seemingly.”

She continued, “Now that I have the love of Eric [Johnson, her husband], it’s just such a different thing. I wouldn’t expect an apology. I don’t think there’s a need for an apology. I feel like people end up finding their way to let you know they’re sorry. And [Mayer] might not be sorry, and that’s okay. We were kind of, like, on-off, on-off at that time. But to talk about anybody sexually was kind of disrespectful, but that’s on him.”

During a 2020 Glamour cover story, Simpson admitted that “some ex-boyfriends” might be surprised by how they’re depicted in the book but added they’d be proud of her “clarity.” 

Jessica Simpson’s interview on the Tamron Hall Show airs on Friday, March 26.
