Singer Jessica Simpsonís mother has filed for divorce.
Tina Simpson is keen to end her 34-year marriage to the pop star-turned-fashion designer's dad Joe by filing legal papers in McLennan County, Texas on 24 September - just one month after her husband was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
She cited "discord or conflict of personalities" as the reason for their split.
