This is a story very dear to my heart because I absolutely love Jessica and Ashlee Simpson and watched their parents on "Newlyweds" like everyone else.
Tina Simpson filed for divorce from Joe Simpson on September 24th after 34 years of marriage. Some gossip sites are saying that it's because of the former minister's sexuality, but that has NOT been confirmed. The papers were filed in McLennan County, Texas, and they released a joint statement:
“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.”
That DUI he got earlier this year seemed to start a landslide of events, and I hope they can get it under control soon.
