Joe Simpson, 54, and Tina Simpson, 52, Ashlee and Jessica Simpson's parents, have filed for divorce after 34 years of marriage.
'It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved,' a rep told E! Online on October 22. 'Any other related allegations are completely false. The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time.'
The couple filed a divorce petition in McLennan County, Texas on September 24. News of the split emerged the same day the National Enquirer claimed that Joe Simpson is gay. Joe Simpson has not immediately responded to the reports.
Joe and Tina's divorce will be the third for the Simpson family. Jessica filed for a divorce from Nick Lachey in 2005 while Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce Pete from Wentz in February 2011.
