Jessica Simpson Reportedly Blindsided By Her Dad's Gay Rumors

No one from the Simpson family has commented on any of the homosexuality rumors that have engulfed Papa Joe since his wife Tina officially filed for divorce, but that silence hasn’t stopped more outlets from drawing a fuller picture of his alleged behavior. Apparently, the fifty-four-year-old former preacher has been a “familiar sight” in West Hollywood gay bars over the past few years and if reports are to be believed, has been spending time with a twenty-one-year-old male model named Bryce Chandler Hill.

According to Radar Online, it was TJ Espinoza, a former Britney Spears back-up dancer that’s good friends with Jessica and Ashlee, who casually introduced Joe and Bryce. The latter has allegedly told numerous people within the gay community that the affair has been going on for over a year, but considering no one is willing to speak publically about what might or might not have happened, there’s no way to know where the line between fact and fiction is.

The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting Jessica and Ashlee are both extremely distraught about everything that’s happened. They reportedly saw neither the divorce nor these scandalous rumors coming, but thankfully, they’ve apparently decided to keep their mouths shut about the family drama out of respect for their parents. Right now, all parties involved seem content to keep the divorce as low profile as possible, but once money is at stake, there’s a high possibility these secrets or non-secrets will be discussed on the record.
