Jessica Simpson's Mom

Files for Divorce

Exclusive Details

1024-tina-joe-simpson-divorce-doc-getty
Jessica Simpson's mother Tina has filed for divorce from Jessica's dad Joe.

Tina filed the papers in Texas last month, claiming, "The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities."

Tina and Joe were married in 1978. They have no minor children.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Tina claims she has separate property from Joe and wants to keep it. It's unclear what that property is.

In the county where Tina filed, there are specific rules about how divorcing spouses have to behave toward each other during proceedings -- they can't curse at each other, harass each other over the phone, or physically attack each other ... basically they HAVE to act like civilized adults.

If one spouse violates the rules, they could be found in contempt of court.

Joe  filed a response to Tina's divorce petition days later, insisting Tina get nothing from the split.

Joe and Tina both played a pivotal role in turning their daughters Jessica and Ashlee into pop superstars.

A rep for the family just released a statement, saying, "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."

O NO! The kids are going to be upset. Jessica will gain back the 5lbs she lost and Ashlee's nose will grow back. You see what divorce can do.

"Jessica and Ashlee into pop superstars" WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME EITHER OF THESE 2 SO CALLED POP SUPERSTARS ACTUALLY HAVE A HIT RECORD? HEADLINING STATE/COUNTY FAIRS DOESN'T COUNT AS BEING A SUPERSTAR....IT'S THE SAME AS BEING A LOUNGE SINGER IN VEGAS!

Darn his luck! He's finally single, but the daughters are spoken for in relationships and unavailable. Maybe he should hook up with Britney Spears' mom as they have in common rearing up and relentlessly promoting their rather talent-challenged if salacious youth pop harpy daughters.
