Singer Ashlee Simpson was photographed with son Bronx Mowgli, nearly 4, in Toluca Lake, Calif. on Saturday (October 27). The preschooler looked adorable in his Spider-Man tee as they stepped out for costume supplies at Halloween Headquarters.
Ashlee was all smiles amidst the recent news that her parents, Joe and Tina Simpson, are splitting after 34 years of marriage. Reportedly, Ashlee and her famous sister, singer-entrepreneur Jessica Simpson, are struggling to cope in the wake of the announcement.
Following the news, a spokesperson came forward to deny reports the pair are ending their marriage because Joe is gay.
A statement read: “Tina and Joe Simpson have filed for divorce. 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.”
The statement did not outright deny claims that Joe had recently “came out of the closet” during a family meeting two months ago, Radar Online reports.
