Jessica Simpson was completely caught off guard and is struggling to come to terms with the fact that her father has come out of the closet. The pop-star-turned-fashion designer never suspected her father, a former youth minister and Baptist pastor, to be a closeted homosexual.

Jessica, who has a number of gay friends in her life, has vowed to stand by her father despite his sexual preference.

“Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling,” our inside source tells us. “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.

“It was a complete shock to the system, she feels terribly for her mom who was left reeling by the announcement and her sister Ashlee has also taken the news quite badly.

“Jessica’s been trying to process the information slowly, but she’s having difficulty dealing with it. She can’t understand why Joe stayed married to Tina for so long, and can’t help wondering how much of their life was a lie,” the source continues.

“Despite that, she’s going to stand by him and support his decision. After all, he’s still her father and Joe’s always been there for Jessica whenever she’s needed him… And not just as a father, but as her manager too.”

The National Enquirer was the first to break the news that Tina had filed for divorce after Joe came out of the closet. Along with the shocking news, he also admitted to having an affair with a 20-something boy toy.

“Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,” an insider told the Enquirer. “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.”

A spokesperson for the Simpson family confirmed that Joe and Tina had officially filed for divorce, but the rep denied that the split involved anyone else.

“It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved,” the rep said in a statement Wednesday. “Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.”
