American singer-songwriter Jessica Simpson revealed that she suffers from dyslexia while celebrating the success of her memoir, 'Open Book', on social media.

She captioned a screenshot of a list of the best audiobooks of the year on Instagram, "Fact: I'm dyslexic and this was the first time I have ever read out loud without hesitation. I did it for the listener. I did it for my family. I did it for myself."

According to Page Six, dyslexia impacts areas of the brain that process language, making reading difficult.

The mom-of-three was shockingly candid in her book that was released this winter, revealing that she struggled with an addiction to alcohol and pills and was sexually abused as a child, as reported by Page Six.

Simpson also disclosed that she turned down 'The Notebook' because of the sex scene and that her relationship with Tony Romo was intercepted by John Mayer.
