Tina Simpson’s life fell apart after she discovered Joe Simpson’s homosexual affair, but what we didn’t know until now was just how hard it was on her.
In fact, we're hearing that after discovering Joe’s relationship with Bryce Chandler Hill, Tina apparently wrote a suicide note where she also threatened to take Joe’s life!
“Tina was so distraught when she found out about Joe’s secret gay affair, she immediately wrote a suicide note … It was fairly detailed and she said she wanted to shoot herself for what Joe had done to their 35-year marriage. Worse still, Tina wanted to shoot Joe as well. She was just so angry with him.”
Luckily for both, Tina ended up going to New York to confront Joe about the scandal instead.
But that doesn’t mean the note just disappeared.
According to sources, Joe actually found it! And he used it to his own benefit, as the source added:
“[W]hen Joe returned to the Encino home in Los Angeles they shared, he found the note, made a copy and gave it to his divorce lawyer as a bargaining tool for the settlement … An offer of a 50 percent split of everything under the Simpson name has been offered to Joe.”
It seems underhanded, but really, what else could he do? And honestly, we’re just glad nothing worse came out of this messy split.
And hopefully Tina is doing much better now that some time has passed.
Those grandbabies need their grandparents!
