Jessica Simpson's parents getting divorced, but it's not because her father's gay
Jessica Simpson's parents are officially getting divorced after 34 years, and despite what you you may have heard, it in no way has anything to do with the rumor that Joe Simpson may have a 20-year-old boyfriend. We just want to clear that up, all right?
Entertainment Tonight says Tina Simpson filed paperwork in McLennan County, Texas, back on Sept. 24, according to the official court papers. A rep was quick to point out there was no apparent reason for any of this happening.
"It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved," the rep told ET, also ignoring Joe's Aug. 4 DUI arrest, to which he pleaded not guilty. "Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time."
But thanks to the ever-resourceful National Enquirer, we're all left to wonder if that's the whole story. "Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet," a source told the rag. "He told them that he'd tried to continue in his marriage to Tina, but he couldn't go on any longer and deny the fact that he had these feelings for men."
And here we just thought he had a creepy fixation on Jessica. Nope it was just some guy in his 20s. At least we don't have to hear about jessica's weight struggles for a few days.
