Joe Simpson is not gay. Rumors have been circulating about Simpson’s sexuality for the last month but the 54-year-old father of Jessica Simpson said today that he was not gay.
According to TMZ, Simpson told his friends and family today that the stories about his gay lover, 21-year-old model Bryce Chandler Hill, were “ridiculous.” Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush, who said that he’s been emailing with Simpson for the past few days, also said that the rumors were not true.
The rumors started earlier this year when Joe and Tina Simpson announced that they were getting a divorce after 34-years. Radar Online published a story claiming that the divorce stemmed from an affair that Joe was having with a young male model.
Hill seemingly denied the story on Twitter, writing: “Yes, I’ve read the story….it’s simply NOT TRUE.”
Tina also said that the rumor that her husband cheated on her with a younger man was false.
Tina told People Magazine:
“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.”
Still, the Joe Simpson rumors continue. Zap 2 It reports that a second man has come forward claiming that he had a sexual relationship with Simpson. Joey Anderson, a 32-year-old escort, said that he was paid $600 to have sex with Simpson.
