Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz Are Getting Divorced

10 February, 2011 at 2:29 pm

ASHLEE SIMPSON has filed for divorce from PETE WENTZ, after just two and a half years of marriage.

They issued a statement saying all the usual things, like how this was a “difficult decision”, but they “remain friends” and will continue to make raising their son their “number one priority.”
Ashlee is seeking spousal support and primary custody of their 2-year-old son Bronx, with visitation for Pete.
One source says Pete and Ashlee have just been, quote, “growing apart for quite some time,” and that the split was amicable.
It’s not clear when Ashlee and Pete officially separated, but they were seen together just last week, walking around West Hollywood with Bronx.
