It's Splitzville For Ashlee Simspon & Pete Wentz
To the shock of fans Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from rocker/husband Pete Wentz on Tuesday citing the usual, "irreconcilable differences".
Insiders, close to the couple, claim that there's no drama. The couple seems to be getting along and devoted to raising their 2-year-old son Bronx.
Woah Pete, what's up with the fro bro?
Just a few days ago Pete tweeted: "dont forget 2 notice-when i look into the lil dudes eyes & smile, the way he loves. i realize @ashsimpsonwentz is a good moma + so much more" - a true poet!
And just last month Ashlee tweeted: "@petewentz I already miss your handsome face!" (Notice she didn't mention the fro.)
So what went wrong? Is it another woman? Nope.
It seems that rumors have been circulating for a while about the unhappy couple. An insider reported, "After Bronx was born, Ashlee made a conscious decision to get out of the business, but Pete's heart was in music so he kept touring and that became a big issue in their relationship."
Talk around town is that Simpson has wanted out of their marriage for a while. She feels like she and Pete have grown apart and she has told friends that she can no longer deal with or handle Pete's "erratic behavior." Pete tried to talk her out of the divorce but nothing could stop her. Her mind is made up and that's all there is to it.
Now I'm reading all these reports about Pete's "erratic" behavior coming from Ashlee, but I can't find any examples of what she's talking about. What has he done? I'd like to know what she consideres to be so erratic that she can't stay married any longer.
She might just be throwing words around in an effort to make her case. Seems that Ashlee is asking for primary physical custody (but joint legal custody) of their son , Pete wants both joint legal AND physical custody of their son. Other sources close to the couple say that Ashlee's claims of "erratic" behavior are a "load of crock."
Ashlee and Pete released this joint statement, “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 well-being remains our number one priority…”
I wonder how "friendly" they're going to be when the custody battle hits full steam.
Do you think Ashlee has a case? Do you even care? I mean they were barely married 3 years and she was pretty young when they got hitched. Pete doesn't seem that erratic to me, but then I've never met him in person so what do I know.
