According to a bombshell new report, Jessica Simpsonâs world was turned upside-down when her manager-dad Joe Simpson reÂcently dropped a bomb on his unsuspecting family: An insider says he confessed heâs gay!
And not only has a family source told The National Enquirer that 54-year-old Joe came out of the closet, the source says the former youth pastor and Baptist minister has a 20-someÂthing boy toy!
The stunning confession was theÂ real reason wife Tina filed for divorce from Joe, her husband of 34 years, in late September, the Enquirer reports.
âJoe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,â an insider divulged. âHe told them that heâd tried to continue in his marriage to Tina, but he couldnât go on any longer and deny the fact that he had these feelings for men.
âJoe said it wasnât fair to her, and it wasnât fair to him.â
Tina, 52, filed for divorce in McLennan County, Texas, on Sept. 24. In the paperwork, she cites âdiscord or conflict of personalitiesâ as grounds for the marital dissolution.
Meanwhile, Joe has been spiraling out of control for some time. He was busted for drunk driving in SherÂman Oaks, Calif., on August 4.
âThe police report stated that there was someone else in the car with Joe,â said a source close to the Simpson family. âSome reports have stated it was Tina, but now the belief is that it may well have been a boyfriend.â
