LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - Friday October 26, 2012. Joe Simpson, dad of Jessica, steps out looking like a new man the week that news broke his wife of 34 years had filed for divorce. Joe looked dapper with a new hair-cut and color and a smart yellow jumper as he was spotted out in Los Angeles today. A US tabloid recently claimed that the reason wife Tina filed for divorce is that the dad of superstar Jessica and sister Ashlee is gay. According to the report, the former youth pastor and Baptist minister announced to his family that he was gay a few months ago and has since moved out of the family home and allegedly has a new 20-something boyfriend. On August 4th of this year Simpson was pulled over by police near his Sherman Oaks home and arrested for suspicion of DUI. These images show a more youthful looking Simpson who appears to have undergone a slight makeover since his last public appearance.
