Jessica Simpson has been slammed online for posting a snap of her daughter Maxwell, 11, posing in a crop-top.
The singer, 43, raised eyebrows when she shared a snap of herself and her eldest child en-route to kick off a dog park contest last week, in which Maxwell sported a denim crop-top and matching skirt, along with a full face of make-up.
The youngster’s look attracted fierce criticism online – with fans taking to Instagram to berate Jessica for ‘letting her 11 year old child dress like a 20 year old.’
One wrote: ‘Why in the hell would you let your child dress like that is beyond me!!!’
Another typed: ‘Who lets their 11 year old child out of the house dressed like that?? Too busy trying to be her minor daughter’s best friend instead of being a responsible parent.

‘After years of denouncing how she was oversexualized as a young adult and the scrutiny she faced, she’s now making sure her daughter will have the same experience, instead of protecting her from it. Shameful and incredibly sad. Poor Maxwell.’
Others wrote: ‘Why are you letting your 11 year old child dress like a 20 year old? They grow up fast enough – let her be a CHILD. Or have you already forgotten what being pushed into adulthood and sexiness can do to a young girl??
‘I love Jessica but I think the daughters outfit is too revealing for an 11 year old’ and ‘She’s 11!!!!! Slow it down. My 13 year old doesn’t that grown and she’s taller than me.’
And more fans wrote: ‘Not a good look for an 11 year old child!’ and ‘she’s 11? Let her be a kid!!!!!’
Others came out in support of the star, writing: ‘She’s mothering the way she Wants. No one asked anyone’s opinions. She’s with her mom and body guards
‘Wow!! Both of you are so beautiful. And what a lucky girl she gets to wear her moms purses and clothes’ and ‘Gorgeous duo.’
As well as Maxwell, Jessica shares 10-year-old son Ace and four-year-old daughter Birdie with husband Eric Johnson, 44.

Jessica recently admitted the fascination around her weight is still mind-boggling.
‘I think it just doesn’t need to be a conversation,’ she told Access Hollywood.
Despite feeling frustrated, at times, by the comments, the Open Book author pointed out the benefit of being woman that has been ‘every size’ while designing for her clothing brand.
‘Honestly for the Jessica Simpson collection it’s been a beautiful thing,’ she said. ‘I do understand every body and every woman and their mentality and how deserving they are of fashion and style, and it’s just such a natural thing for me.’
As she raises three children, alongside husband Eric Johnson, the I Wanna Love You Forever singer explained that she reminds her kids not to ‘dress for anyone else.’
She advises her little ones not to ‘you don’t try to look like anybody else’ or be ‘any other size.’
While speaking about her eldest, Maxwell ‘Maxi’ Drew, 11, Simpson recalled her preteen asking if she should be ‘insecure’ about being the ‘tallest in her grade.’

She recalls telling her little girl: ‘The fact you’re asking me if you should be insecure means absolutely not!’
Additionally, the mother-of-three revealed that she tries not to ‘diet’ or complain about her body in front of them.
‘They just see me living a a healthy lifestyle,’ she explained, noting she also ‘quit drinking’ to ensure that she was a ‘good role model.’
