Ashlee's Dad Insists Her Credibility Is Intact

ASHLEE SIMPSON's father and manager JOE SIMPSON insists his daughter's credibility remains intact, despite her lip-syncing scandal.

The PIECES OF ME singer sparked much debate after her recent appearance on a live broadcast of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE in America, where she started miming to the wrong track.

But Joe, who also manages Ashlee's older sister JESSICA, admits he's stunned by the strong reaction.

He says, "I was definitely surprised by (the reaction) because she didn't expose a boob, she wasn't doing drugs, she isn't anorexic and she didn't get married in Vegas."

He explains that the singer has acid reflux, which affects the vocal cords, and was ordered by her doctor not to sing live that night.

He adds, "I don't think this will hurt her credibility with kids; they won't care."
