    Cool Photo Shock for Jessica and Ashley Simpson




    February 12, 2006 -- KINKY photographer David LaChapelle is still so furious at Jessica and Ashlee Simpson for pulling out of a Rolling Stone photo shoot last year that he's sent them a bill for $10,000 over the cancellation.

    The brouhaha started last September when LaChapelle was hired by Rolling Stone to shoot Jessica and Ashlee in an "edgy" spread. But the sisters quickly became unnerved by a barrage of the lensman's odd demands.

    "Locations were changed. Jessica was told she couldn't use her hair guy [and best friend] Ken Paves even though David used him for other shoots," an insider says.

    "Then, he changed hair people three times the day before the shoot. He started making demands that made her uncomfortable ... telling her the shot was going to be down and dirty and in a bar with snakes ... like she was Paris Hilton. She has to protect her image - and he was going to kill it."

    The Simpsons bowed out and went to Blender magazine instead, prompting LaChapelle to spew at the time: "They're everything that's wrong with music ... Out of everything combined, they're everything wrong with culture, and everything wrong with art, and what we think of as art and musical culture - in one family!

    "They're nothing. They have nothing. They hold no interest whatsoever for anybody. They're reality-red-carpet, lip-synching television stars.

    "I don't know what they are beyond that. I don't think they offer anything ... I was only doing it because of my relationship with Rolling Stone," LaChapelle ranted. "We were going to try and make the Simpsons look cool. I realize now that is an impossible task."


    The Simpsons were taken aback by the verbal assault. A friend of the family says, "They had no idea they were going to be attacked like that. And now to get a $10,000 bill? No way are they ever going to pay that. He will not see a dime from them. They didn't sign any contracts.


    "When [father] Joe saw the bill, he just laughed - the nerve of this guy! The shoot didn't go off because of him."


    Asked for comment, LaChapelle's rep giggled, "I'll get back to you." He didn't.

    I believe this officially makes him...



    /I agree with everything he said, though...

    Photographers are notoriously weird and temperamental. Plus, he's getting tons of free publicity out of this.

    She has to protect her image
    By this point, the greasy snake-shoot would have done that.
    I am from the American CIA and I have a radio in my head. I am going to kill you.
