Joe Simpson is NOT on the verge of dying from prostate cancer, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”

According to In Touch, Jessica Simpson is “struggling to cope” as her father battles for his life after recently detecting prostate cancer. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, “Doctors found that he has Stage 4 cancer and that the disease has spread to his lymph nodes,” leaving the rest of the family “heartbroken” and “devastated” over the “very real possibility of him dying.”

The magazine’s supposed insider further claims, “[Jessica and Ashlee Simpson] have been there every step of the way as Joe fights for his life.” “Jessica has helped him find the best doctors and medical care,” and both she and Ashlee “visit him three to four times a week,” says the outlet’s source. “He’s weak and tired a lot,” but has allegedly remained “optimistic about his battle,” concludes the tipster.

But Gossip Cop investigated, and we’re exclusively assured by a source close to Jessica the claim that Joe’s on the verge of dying is “not true.” The insider went on to call the tabloid story “disgusting.” While it’s true Joe was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, he has since had undergone surgery and is recovering well, and is set to take off shortly for Japan for work.
