Not Just Jessica’s Sister

Being the younger sibling of a tabloid sensation is challenging enough, but Ashlee Simpson has endured scrutiny from the media that even compares to that of her more well-known sister. This young actress emerged from her sister’s shadow to become a celebrity in her own right because she identified with her own sound and style and never pretended to reflect Jessica’s strict views on premarital sex.

American singer, songwriter, and actress Ashlee Simpson has an estimated net worth of $12 million dollars, as of 2023.

The second of two daughters, Ashlee Nicole Simpson was born in Waco, Texas, in 1984. She started taking ballet lessons practically as soon as she could walk, and at the age of 11, she earned enough recognition to start studying at the famed School of American Ballet in New York.

The entire family moved to Los Angeles after her sister, Jessica Simpson, secured a record deal with Columbia Records.

Ashlee started out as a backup dancer for Jessica’s musical performances, and it was through this that she caught the performance bug. She started making appearances in TV ads and finally got a part in the drama 7th Heaven. She was able to develop an identity outside of “Jessica Simpson’s little sister” because to the job.

With the exception of her lip-syncing gaffe on Saturday Night Live, Ashlee was a member of the beloved 7th Heaven family, tried her hand at reality on The Ashlee Simpson Show, and acted dramatic on Melrose Place.

Ashlee launched her musical career in 2003 when she released her first single, “Just Let Me Cry,” for the film Freaky Friday. Geffen Records took notice of her song and offered her a recording contract for her debut album.

She chronicled the months spent recording her debut on the MTV reality series The Ashlee Simpson Show in order to promote the album and gain more attention.

Ashlee eventually became more well-known thanks to her music career than even her older sister. Ashlee’s reality program received a lot more media attention than Jessica’s, who on the show Newlyweds exposed her relationship with musician Nick Lachey to the public.

Her debut album, Autobiography, debuted at number one on the charts, which only added to the strain until it all came to a head in 2004 with an infamous appearance on Saturday Night Live.

When Simpson came out for her second performance of the album’s title track, her band started to play the correct song, but Simpson’s pre-recorded vocals for “Pieces of Me” started to play instead. This happened after Simpson sang her popular single “Pieces of Me” earlier in the performance. Onstage, she froze instantly before improvising a jig and leaving right away.

At the conclusion of the performance, she apologized and said that her band had chosen the wrong song, but by that point, everyone was aware that she had been lip-syncing. Later, she acknowledged that she was utilizing a prerecorded tape because she had acid reflux.

When Simpson appeared in the Orange Bowl in Miami’s halftime of the Oklahoma/USC football game in 2005, things for Simpson became worse. Following her performance, Simpson was rudely booed by the audience. Later, she explained that she thought there were more Oklahoma supporters present than USC supporters and that the booing was a result of her support for USC.

Over the course of her life, Ashlee Simpson has been in a number of prominent relationships. She had a romance with actor Josh Henderson, but it ended as her reality program was airing for the first time. Ryan Cabrera, a musician she also dated, frequently appeared on her reality show.

The star of That 70s Show Wilmer Valderrama and she were involved in a contentious relationship for a brief while after he split from Lindsay Lohan. Simpson denied the relationship, although on multiple occasions, people saw the two engaged in intimate activities. The following song she released, “Boyfriend,” was a response to the alleged romance between Simpson and Valderrama.

She advocated for young girls to embrace their bodies after making a public appearance after having plastic surgery on her nose. Despite a considerable difference in look, she initially denied having plastic surgery; however, in later interviews, she changed her mind and acknowledged having the procedure, claiming it was done to treat sinus issues.

Simpson started dating Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, and the two eventually got married in 2008. Simpson disputed the claims that she was pregnant when the rumors first surfaced. Soon later, she revealed that they were really having a kid and changed her name to Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. In 2008, Bronx Mowgli was born, and Ashlee used her Twitter account to introduce him to the public. But when Ashlee filed for divorce in early 2011, the happy family encountered a snag.

Despite Ashlee following her sister’s path to success by pursuing a career in reality television, she encountered some difficulties along the way and never fully recovered. The next chapter of Simpson’s life is still being written as she raises her baby and works on a new album.

“Fear is not something I live by, never have, especially when it comes to my career. I’d rather go to the edge and see what happens.”
