The 39-year-old called out her ex-boyfriend’s behavior in a new tell-all memoir “Open Book,” excerpts of which were published by People, saying it’s not OK to publicly discuss a woman’s performance in the bedroom.
“He thought that was what I wanted to be called,” Simpson said, according to People. “A woman and how they are in bed is not something that is ever talked about. It was shocking.”
“That girl, for me, is a drug,” he said. “And drugs aren’t good for you if you do lots of them. Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me. Sexually it was crazy. That’s all I’ll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm.”
Simpson reportedly said she was terrified that her grandmother might read Mayer’s interview.
“I was floored and embarrassed that my grandmother was actually gonna read that,” she said.
Despite being hurt by Mayer’s comments, Simpson said it also gave her more closure from the relationship as she “erased his number.”
“He was the most loyal person on the planet and when I read that he wasn’t, that was it for me,” she said, according to People. “I erased his number He made it easy for me to walk away.”
The couple met back in 2005 at a Grammy after-party where, as People described, Mayer told her how much he admired her song “With You.”
Later that year she divorced Nick Lachey, and their relationship quickly intensified with Simpson reportedly saying in her memoir, “he wanted to have all of me or nothing.”
While she acknowledged and accepted a public apology he made in The New York Times, she said they hadn’t been in contact since that Playboy interview.
“I think he knows a lot of this about me already,” she said, according to People, “but he doesn’t know the perspective I have as a woman.”
