People reports that in a court hearing held on Tuesday (November 13), Simpson entered a plea to one misdemeanor count, with a second being dismissed by a Los Angeles judge.

Simpson is currently in the process of separating from wife Tina Simpson, who filed for divorce in October.

According to court papers, the 52-year-old wife and mother of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson reported "discord or conflict of personalities".

Some reports suggest that the catalyst for the divorce might have been Joe Simpson allegedly coming out as gay to his family.
