The timeline of Joe Simpson’s ill-health

It was reported by US Weekly in November 2016 that the ace fashion photographer is suffering from prostate cancer and was diagnosed in early 2016. He had surgery performed on him for it in September 2016.

In February 2017, an insider told US Weekly that Joe is going to commence treatment for the condition. The source said:

“Joe just started radiation. He feels fine, he’s getting through it and still working. It’s all scheduled once a week. He’s super optimistic. Doctors are hopeful that this will take care of it and be the last step, and he will hopefully then be in remission and cancer-free. Joe just says he feels like it’s like going to get a checkup.”

“So for me I was just trying to make sure I was there and paying attention to how everyone was feeling.” 

Ashlee has a daughter named Jagger who is 3 now with Evan. She also has a son named the Bronx, 9 with her first and now ex-husband Pete Wentz.

Evan had lost his father at a young age and a father figure means a lot to him. His father Arne Naess Jr. had a climbing accident in South Africa and died due to it in 2004. Evan was 15 at that time and said:

“My loss came so abrupt, it wasn’t something we were expecting at all,”
