Jessica and Ashlee Simpson’s parents have decided to call it quits after 34 years of marriage.
The news came only hours after the National Enquirer landed on newsstands with a cover story that Joe is gay. Joe and Tina issued a joint statement to People magazine.
“It is an amicable split and there is no third-party involved,” the couple’s rep told People magazine. “Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.”
Joe and Tina have listed the family’s Encino, Calif. estate for $4.3 million.
Tina filed papers Sept. 24 in McLennan County, Tex. In the documents, she stated, “The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict in personalities.” Tina also stated she has separate property from her estranged husband that she wants to keep, TMZ reports.
Jessica was blindsided that her father is allegedly gay.
“Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling,” a source told Radar Online. “She thinks she has very good gaydar, especially since a lot of her friends are gay, but she did not see this coming at all.
In the new issue of the National Enquirer, it reports:
Jessica’s billion-dollar fashion empire could be caught up in the ugly tug-of-war that’s sure to follow.
“Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,” an insider divulged.
“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.
“Joe said it wasn’t fair to her, and it wasn’t fair to him.”
