Jessica Simpson 'Blindsided' By Reports Of Dad Being Gay
Jessica Simpson was reportedly blindsided by rumors saying that her dad was gay. According to Radar Online, Jessica is struggling with her parents divorce -- but she is supporting him in whatever choice he makes. A source said, "Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling. She thinks she has very good gaydar, especially since a lot of her friends are gay, but she did not see this coming at all. It was a complete shock to the system, she feels terribly for her mom who was left reeling by the announcement and her sister Ashlee has also taken the news quite badly. Jessica's been trying to process the information slowly, but she's having difficulty dealing with it." The source continues, "She can't understand why Joe stayed married to Tina for so long, and can't help wondering how much of their life was a lie. Despite that, she's going to stand by him and support his decision. After all, he's still her father and Joe's always been there for Jessica whenever she's needed him... And not just as a father, but as her manager too." Tina Simpson filed for divorce. Afterwards, The National Enquirer reported that Joe reportedly had a younger boyfriend.
