Jessica Simpson’s parents Tina and Joe Simpson have filed for divorce, according to multiple reports, ending a marriage that began in 1978.

TMZ reports that Tina filed the papers in Texas last month, claiming, “The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”

Meanwhile, a representative for the family told People that no cheating was involved in the decision.

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

The former couple are, of course, parents to “Fashion Star” judge Jessica Simpson as well as singer/actress Ashlee Simpson.
