JESSICA SIMPSON's world was turned upside-down when her manager-dad recently dropped a bomb on his unsuspecting family: a family insider says he confessed He's gay!
The stunning confession was the REAL reason wife Tina filed for divorce from Joe, her husband of 34 years, in late September – and the family insider says 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."
Stunned by the revelation, Jessica and her sister Ashlee lashed out.
“They asked Joe how long he’d known he was gay, and he said he'd known it for quite awhile,” said the insider.
“Jessica felt that he’d not only deceived their mom, but her and Ashlee as well.”
