In an attempt to address recent allegations that Joe Simpson is gay, he and his estranged wife Tina Simpson have issued a statement to clarify their recent decision to divorce.

A rep for the couple revealed, "It is an amicable split and there is no third party involved.  Any other related allegations are completely false.  The family appreciates your respect for their privacy at this time."

Tina, 52, filed for divorce in Texas in late September, one month after Joe, 54, was arrested for drunk driving.

The couple have two adult daughters: Ashlee Simpson and Jessica Simpson.

A few days after Tina Simpson filed for divorce she showed up on the set of Fashion Star, prompting Jess to share a Twitter photo that she tagged, "Love when my mom visits me on set."
