After 34-years of marriage, Jessica Simpson's parents are calling it quits.

According to Gossip Cop, the singer's mother Tina has filed for divorce from her husband Joe, citing "discord or conflict of personalities."

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the papers were filed in Texas on September 24, and days later Joe filed a response to Tina's divorce petition, insisting Tina get nothing from the divorce.

The website also reports that in the county where Tina filed, there are specific rules about how divorcing spouses may behave toward each other during proceedings, and if they violate the rules they could be found in contempt of court.

It's been a rough few months for the Simpson family, as Joe was arrested for a DUI after he blew .12 blood alcohol level (BAC), well over the legal limit of .08 on Aug. 4 while driving in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.

The couple had been surrounded by rumors they were about to divorce for weeks following news they put their Los Angeles-area home on the market for $4.395 million, earlier this month.

UPDATE: A rep for the couple told Gossip Cop in a statement:

“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.”
