Reports have surfaced that Joe Simpson, Jessica Simpson's father, has been allegedly having an affair with an aspiring 21-year-old male model.
A source recently told Radar Online that Joe and Bryce Chandler Hill have been dating on and off for about a year since being introduced by a mutual friend who is close to his famous offspring Jessica and Ashlee Simpson.
"Jessica had absolutely no clue that her father was gay, not even the slightest inkling," the source said. "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."
The source added that despite what she has learned, Jessica'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," the source said. "And not just as a father, but as her manager too."
The allegations arrive just days after the 54-year-old and wife of 34 years Tina Simpson filed for divorce, adding fuel to the speculation. The pair reportedly split earlier this year and have put their Los Angeles home up for sale.
