Haunted by scandalous stories of husband Joe's dalliances with much younger men, Tina Simpson is drowning her sorrows with booze, causing Jessica to fear her mom is going to spin completely out of control, according to a report in the new issue of Star magazine.
Forced to file for divorce after 34 years of marriage and having moved out of the family home, the Simpson matriarch is now constantly watching her back in case yet more scandalous stories emerge about her ex's liaisons, according to the report.
According to Star, to help deal with her anxiety, Tina’s turned to hard liquor, and insiders report that her self-medicating with booze has her daughters so concerned that they are now urging her to seek treatment.
Tina, 52, had always been a social drinker, pals tell Star, but now she is reportedly using alcohol to cover the raw wounds from the 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."
