Jessica Simpson’s was naturally in shock when her manager-dad Joe Simpson recently dropped a bomb on his unsuspecting family: he’s gay!
Not only did 54-year-old Joe come out of the closet, the former youth pastor and Baptist minister allegedly had a boy toy in his early 20s.
The shocking confession was the actual reason why wife Tina decided to fill for divorce after 34 years of marriage.
“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.”
Meanwhile, Joe has been spiraling out of control for some time. He was busted for drunk driving in Sherman Oaks, Calif., on August 4.
“The police report stated that there was someone else in the car with Joe,” said a source close to the Simpson family. “Some reports have stated it was Tina, but now the belief is that it may well have been a boyfriend.”
