Jessica Simpson's religious dad 'is gay and has a toy boy'

Family source claims US singer's dad divorced from wife of 34 years because he was gay

Jessica Simpson's religious dad 'is gay and has a toy boy'

Jessica Simpson’s devout Christian father is gay and has a 20-year-old toy boy, according to reports.

A source claims the pop singer’s dad Joe Simpson dropped the bombshell to his family in August, citing that as the reason for his divorce to wife of 34 years, Tina.

‘Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,’ a family insider told gossip magazine National Enquirer.

‘He told them 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.’

Tina, 52, filed for divorce in September on the grounds of ‘discord or conflict of personalities’.

The source also claims the 54-year-old former youth pastor and Baptist minister now has a 20-year-old gay lover.

Joe Simpson was arrested for drink driving on August 4.

‘The police report stated that there was someone else in the car with Joe,’ a source said, reported RadarOnline.

‘Some reports have stated it was Tina, but now the belief is that it may well have been a boyfriend.’
