Jessica And Ashlee Simpson Put On Brave Front At Autograph Singing
Showbiz sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson put on a united front yesterday, as they signed autographs for fans at the launch of their joint clothing line, amid rumors their father is gay.
Jessica and Ashlee’s father Joe Simpson shockingly split from their mother, wife of 34 years in September.
Last month rumors began to circulate that Joe a former pastor, had come out to his family, explaining he is gay and has been trying to mask his feelings for men, for all of these years.
Insiders claim the rumors are true, adding that Joe has been seeing a man half his age for just under a year. Unsurprisingly the news is said to have shocked and upset the whole family, with Jessica and Ashlee having no prior suspicions that their father was gay.
Whilst Joe has since come out to the press and denied these accusations, neither Jessica, Ashlee nor their mother has spoken about them, instead remaining quiet whilst attempting to shy away from the limelight.
As Jessica and Ashlee promoted their new fashion venture ate Macy’s in Costa Mesa, California, it was the first time that the sister have been publicly seen together since the allegations broke out.
Jessica who gave birth to her first baby Maxwell back in May, was glowing, showcasing her post-pregnancy weight loss of 60 pounds, thanks to her Weight Watchers diet. Meanwhile 28 year-old Ashlee, who also has one child, sat close to Jessica sticking to her more edgy rock chick style, as the pair put on a smile for their dedicated fans.
