Jessica's rep tells TMZ the singer is 1/16th Native American "on her mother's side."
So far, Simpson's peeps have not revealed which tribe Jessica is descended from.
Of course, the revelation only came to light after Jessica started receiving criticism from Native American groups after she claimed she wasn't an "Indian giver"--regarding a gift she bought Tony Romo.
Do we really need to ask what "tribe" Simpson is from? The odds are about 20-1 in favor of its being Cherokee.
In any case, Simpson shouldn't have used and abused the term "Indian giver." That's stereotypical and arguably offensive even when an Indian says it.
