The singer and fashion designer made the disclosure while celebrating the success of the audiobook version of her bestselling memoir, “Open Book.”


“Fact: I’m dyslexic and this was the first time I have ever read out loud without hesitation,” Simpson wrote. “I did it for the listener. I did it for my family. I did it for myself.”


Simpson’s memoir was singled out by Apple Books as one of the best audiobooks of 2020.
