Ashley Simpson divorces Pete Wentz

And Finally

Ashlee Simpson

Pop chick Ashley Simpson has filed for divorce from her husband, one time mouthy Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz. According to TMZ, Simpson’s divorce papers cite “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. There is seemingly no prenup, and Simpson is asking for spousal and child support, and primary physical custody of their two year old son Bronx. Some gossipers say it is the custody arrangements that are most likely to cause tensions between the estranged couple.

Though they are still on good enough terms to release a joint statement, having just told reporters: “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and wellbeing remains our number one priority. We ask that everyone honour our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives”.
