Jessica Simpson is worried about her mom, Tina!
And for good reason, too. The star and fashion mogul is fearful that her mother- faced with the many reports of her ex-husband Joe Simpson‘s affairs with much younger men- will keep behaving in an unhealthy manner, according to a report in the new issue of Star magazine.
Tina and Joe, the matriach and patriarch of the Simpson empire, are divorcing after 34 years of marriage. Having moved out of the family home, Tina is now constantly watching her back in case of more rumors, paparazzi and the like, and turning to booze for her problems. According to reports, Tina had always been a social drinker, but now she is reportedly using alcohol to help her cope with the very public demise of her marriage.
“Tina is hitting the bottle to ease her sorrows over her marital problems, she’s built up quite a tolerance and has switched from wine to stuff like scotch and vodka,” a source tells Star. “Jess is just a mess over this, she feels helpless and doesn’t know what to do.”
Oy. These are big issues to wrestle with…and part of the reasons why a good therapist is helpful. Tina, get thee to a professional!
