Reports recently revealed that Tina Simpson, mother of Jessica Simpson, has filed for divorce from her husband, Joe. The couple, who are the parents to two daughters, have been married for 34 years.
The process of filing for divorce was completed by Tina in Texas during the month of September. The paperwork showed that the reason for the divorce was due to a conflict in personalities between the two parties. After news of the divorce hit the media tabloids, affair rumors began circulating.
The rumors involved Joe having an affair while he was married to Tina. Although a rep for the Simpsons has denied these third-party rumors, they continue to pick up traction in the media. Jessica Simpson is said to be coping with the news of her parent’s divorce, and is currently focusing her efforts on her young daughter.

Men and women who split up the household chores in their marriages may be more inclined to end their marriage, according to a new study released last week.
The study reveals that equality in the household causes divorces to take place roughly 50 percent more often than when compared to marriages involving the woman taking on almost all of the duties in the home. Norwegian couples in 2007 and 2008 were analyzed for this study.
The researchers want to convey the message that equality in the home does not necessarily mean that married couples will persevere in their relationships. The level of happiness was also measured in this study, and the results showed that women who performed all of the tasks at home were just as happy as women who split up these chores with their significant others.

Kelly Rutherford is said to be distraught over the fact that a judge in her child custody case has ruled that her children will be able to remain in France with her former husband.
The “Gossip Girl” actress has a 5-year-old and a 3-year-old with her ex-husband. Currently, her children are residing in France with their father, who has no way of returning to the United States due to the fact that his visa was revoked. A judge determined that Rutherford will be able to have her children 50 percent of the time, but that she will have to work out the travel situations for that to be possible.
Rutherford is upset over this news, as she believes that this ruling will cause her to lose quality time with her young children because of the distance between them. According to reports, she is planning to appeal the decision, but no appeal has been filed at this time.

A federal judge in Phoenix has made a ruling in Andre Rison’s child support case. The ex-professional football player has been sentenced to five years’ probation and has been ordered to pay over $300,000 in restitution due to missing child support payments for an extended period of time.
According to documents, Rison did not pay child support to the mother of his 13-year-old child for three full years. That amount totaled roughly $10,o00. The misdemeanor charge against him will force him to pay close to $2,350 a month in child support and to begin paying off his restitution at the same time.
Rison, 45, made millions during his career as a professional football player. He was drafted in 1989 and played for 13 seasons with seven teams. He allegedly blew through all of his NFL earnings some time ago and may not have the funds to pay the child support or restitution.

On Thursday in New York, actress Katie Holmes filed paperwork to end her marriage to Tom Cruise. The couple has been married for five years and have a 6-year-old daughter together.
Their relationship has been in the media ever since it began, with their significant age difference sparking the initial interest of the public. Tom Cruise has been married twice before, once for 10 years to actress Nicole Kidman. His romance with Katie Holmes resulted in a large celebrity-studded wedding at an Italian castle.
According to several reports, Cruise and Holmes drifted apart and were living more as friends than husband and wife. People close to the actress believe that Cruise’s roots in Scientology may be part of the reason for the divorce. Holmes has reported she feels like she is being followed by Scientology members and fears for her and her daughter’s safety.

Data from a federal survey has revealed that individuals over the age of 50 are responsible for roughly four out of every 10 divorces that take place in the United States.
The divorce rate for baby boomers has doubled in the last 20 years, and there are many factors that are said to have contributed to this increase. These factors include the changing views on marriage and the increased life expectancy in America.
The demographics of the divorcing couples were also calculated, and it was determined that African-American couples divorced more often than white couples. Also, individuals who divorced after the age of 50 were found to have less education than those who continued to stay married.
