Jessica Simpson's father (and manager) Joe has often done awkward things in the press, but this time it's jaw-dropping.

Joe and wife of 34 years, Tina, are divorcing, and Joe reportedly announced to the family that he is gay...and dating a 20-year-old.

Joe, a former Baptist minister and youth pastor, is rumored to have told the family two months ago.

I thought his DUI arrest was the most shocking thing we'd get from Papa Joe...

The thing is, this rumor started from The National Enquirer. *Insert eye roll here*

If it's true, and that's a big if, it's great for him to be out of the closet and living his life...but as for dating someone younger than his daughters? That's just creepy.

No response yet from Jessica's camp.
