Is Jessica Simpson's Dad Gay?


parents, JOE and TINA, are getting divorced.  And there's talk all over the World Wide Web of Baseless Speculation that the real reason they're splitting is because Joe is GAY.  A so-called "source" says Joe gathered the family together two months ago and came out of the closet.  He said he tried to make things work with Tina, but he, "couldn't go on any longer and deny the fact that he had these feelings for men."

One source claims he already has a 20-something boyfriend.  Joe was arrested for drunk driving back in August, and the police report says there was someone in the car with him.  The source says it may have been Joe's new boyfriend.

Tina filed divorce papers on September 24th, citing "discord or conflict of personalities."  But a Simpson family rep is denying the gay rumor.  He says, "It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved.  Any other related allegations are completely false.  The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time."

Joe and Tina have been married for 34 years.  He's 54, she's 52.
