Tina Simpson penned a suicide note after finding out that her ex-husband Joe Simpson was having a gay affair, according to a shocking new report.
Shortly before confronting Joe, 52, about his tryst with model Bryce Chandler Hill, 21, Tina wrote a letter threatening to shoot herself last year.
Tina, 53, also said she wanted to shoot Joe, her husband of 35 years, for cheating on her, in the note she wrote in their Encino home - which he found.
“Tina was so distraught when she found out about Joe’s secret, she immediately wrote a suicide note,” a source close to the Simpson family said.
“It was fairly detailed and she said she wanted to shoot herself for what Joe had done to their 35-year marriage. Worse still, Tina wanted to shoot Joe as well."
"She was just so angry with him. But, instead of killing herself, Tina headed straight to a New York hotel to confront Joe about Bryce Chandler Hill."
“However, when Joe returned to the Encino home in Los Angeles they shared, he found the note, made a copy and gave it to his divorce lawyer."
With him in possession of that bargaining chip, Tina eventually offered Joe half of the family fortune, which she had been reluctant to do before.
Joe was busted regarding his affair with Bryce Chandler Hill when Tina found some modeling pictures of the baby-faced blonde boy toy in their home.
He was also linked to Joey Anderson, though the father of Ashlee and Jessica Simpson denies he is gay. Do you think the Joey Simpson gay rumors are true?
