In Simpson’s memoir, which was originally published last year, she called the guitarist “emotionally manipulative” and their on-and-off relationship “dysfunctional.”
“No, I definitely don’t feel like he owes me a public apology,” Simpson told Hall. “I mean, you can’t take it back.”
Simpson called herself “a very forgiving person,” but added, “I’m honest too. So in the memoir, if I’m going to talk about things that caused me pain, I’ll be honest about it. And that was a moment. of my life in which I was very manipulated and also very in love, or apparently “.
She said that now that she has “Eric’s love,” referring to her husband of six years, Eric Johnson, she knows that true love is “such a different thing.”
So, “I wouldn’t expect an apology. I don’t think an apology is necessary,” Simpson said before noting that, “He may not regret it, and that’s okay. We were kind of on and off at the time. But talk about someone is sexually disrespectful, but I mean that is up to him. “
In Simpson’s memoir, she wrote that she and Mayer, who dated and dated from 2006 to 2010, broke up “about nine times” throughout their relationship. The “disrespectful” comments were those he made detailing his sex life to Playboy in 2010. He infamously called her “sexual napalm” and said she was like “crack to me.” He publicly apologized at the time and later called himself an “idiot” for talking about Simpson and other exes in interviews.
Simpson wrote that she met Mayer in 2005, in the midst of her troubled marriage to Nick Lachey, and they began exchanging intimate notes. After she and Lachey filed for divorce in November, she began dating Mayer, who “told me he was obsessed with me, sexually and emotionally.” However, she said he made her feel insecure and “constantly worried that I was not smart enough for him.” Those insecurities prompted her to drink, which became a problem in her life. She has been sober since 2017.
In the book, she gave him credit for publicly apologizing for the Playboy comments, but said he did not accept it. She wrote that the humiliation of all this in the headlines is what led her to end all contact with him forever. She deleted her contact, changed her number and email.

“I’ve heard of it. I’ve heard some snippets,” Mayer said of the book. “As Pee Wee Herman says in Pee Wee’s great adventure Before the movie of his life is about to unfold at the end, he doesn’t see it, and the reason he doesn’t see it is that he says, ‘I don’t have to see it, Dottie, I lived it. And I think that’s prophetic here. “
