The parents of Jessica Simpson have filed for divorce.
Tina and Joe Simpson released a statement on Oct. 24 that they were divorcing, after 35 years, to PEOPLE. This came on the same day that the National Enquirer reported that Joe had come out to his family.
“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,” the statement said.
Tina, 51, filed for divorce in Texas in September. She cited “discords or conflict of personalities” as the reason for their divorce. She and Joe, 54, were married in 1978. They are also the parents to Ashlee Simpson, and have two grandchildren between their daughters.
