Jessica Simpson's father Joe has been playing Cupid. The singer-and-actress' manager dad was seen trying to get the single 27-year-old a date at the Rolling Stone magazine party in Las Vegas last week.
A fellow partygoer told Us Weekly magazine: "Joe was chatting to a handsome guy and told him Jessica was single. He gave the hunk his assistant's number and said he'd set him up with her."
Jessica was previously married to singer Nick Lachey. The pair famously starred in their own MTV reality show 'Newlyweds', which documented their lives together.
The pair officially divorced in 2006, and Jessica has since been linked to U.S. musician John Mayer and comedian Dane Cook. Meanwhile, Joe has been playing hero to his younger daughter Ashlee.
The 49-year-old came to her rescue when trouble flared up outside the Decaydance/GQ party at the Mirage Hotel and Casino's Jet nightclub on Sunday.
A brawl ensued as Ashlee, 22, her Fall Out Boy star lover Pete Wentz and Joe were allowed to leave the club but were kept waiting for their entourage by security.
The incident quickly escalated and one security guard shoved Pete, sending him flying into Ashlee, who was thrown against a wall. Joe immediately entered the furor to defend his daughter.
He later said: "When somebody messes with my baby, then it's over!"
"Those security guys are just mad because they make $12 an hour."
