He’s usually happy to stay below the radar, but Joe Simpson’s Twitter account got some major attention on Monday night (December 16).

The former Baptist minister-turned-music manager was hacked by an unknown user, and nasty tweets began showing up right away.

Among the 40+ profane messages were statements like, “I’ve used my ‘name’ and abused my power. I’ve molested multiple and can provide proof. Everyone should know.”

Another tweet read, “It’s true – I’ve molested people… I’ve molested kids,” followed by, “For those who are wondering…my account has not been hacked but as I said I would remove those tweets…see I can get away with anything ;)”

Once the problem was remedied, the real father of Jessica and Ashlee tweeted, “My twitter account was hacked this evening and some terrible messages were sent from my account. My account has been reset now.”
