As the Colts and Saints prepare to battle it out for the Super Bowl title, celebs are showing their support by partying the nights away in hot Miami. Dadager Joe Simpson took part of the action, stopping by the bash hosted by his former son-in-law Nick Lachey. Joe casually walked into Nick’s event at the Hotel 944 at Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach. “Nick doesn’t know I’m here!” an eyewitness at the party heard Joe confess.
“I was so confused because I thought they hated each other,” the eyewitness tells OK!.
Joe had been rumored to be one of the reasons Nick and his daughter Jessica Simpson split in 2005.
The onlooker tells OK! Joe was staying at the Eden Roc, where Nick and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo are also celebrating the Super Bowl.
Nick and Vanessa spent the day at the relaxing by the pool.
“Nick was late for his event because Vanessa took forever to get ready,” a source close to the couple tells OK!. “Joe went up the elevator to the party before Nick, and tried to slip in unnoticed.”
When Nick learned his former father-in-law was at his party he looked shocked.
“I haven’t talked to Joe in years,” Nick told OK!. “So be it.”
