Looks like Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is following in her big sis Jessica’s footsteps when it comes to having a long-lasting marriage—Ashlee has filed for divorce from her rocker hubby Pete Wentz after two years of wedded bliss. Divorce docs filed with the L.A. County Superior Court show that the 26-year old singer / songwriter has cited the usual “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the sudden split. Ashlee’s asking for joint legal custody along with primary physical custody of the couple’s adorable 2-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz. Sources say there was no prenuptial agreement, and Ashlee’s requesting spousal and child support from the 31-year-old Fall Out Boy bassist.
Things haven’t gotten ugly yet, but we all know what tends to happen when two Hollywood celebs decide to split up, especially when kids are involved. The formerly-happy couple has released a joint statement saying, “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. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”
The media’s most likely gonna have a field day with this one, especially if the usually-outspoken Papa Joe Simpson decides to speak up, but Ashlee’s used to being in the news. There was the whole lip-syncing incident during her performance on Saturday Night Live a few years back, and speculation of a nose job in 2006. Pregnancy rumors even began swirling when her marriage to Pete was announced—of course, the rumors were right! Ashlee says that her sense of style changes often and she tends to “mix and match” her wardrobe She looks cute as can be in these reliable Ray Ban Wayfarers, which are available in a kaleidoscope of colors.
