The 54-year-old has reportedly revealed to his family that he is gay and it was that fact that caused his divorce from Jessica’s mother Tina.
According to the report, the former Baptist minister also has a much younger boyfriend!
“Joe got the family together about two months ago and came out of the closet,” an insider revealed. “He told them that he’d tried to continue in his marriage to Tina, but he couldn’t go on any longer and deny the fact that he had these feelings for men.”
“Joe said it wasn’t fair to her, and it wasn’t fair to him.”
The confession is reportedly what led to the couple’s September divorce after 34 years of marriage.
The heartbroken Tina filed for divorce in Texas on September 24, citing “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for the split.
Also, do you remember when Joe was busted back in August for DUI? Well that story just got a whole lot more scandalous!
“The police report stated that there was someone else in the car with Joe,” said a close source. “Some reports have stated it was Tina, but now the belief is that it may well have been a boyfriend.”
Jessica and Joe have yet to comment on the rumors.
