Ashlee Simpson And Pete Wentz Are Divorcing

9 Feb

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz are divorcing after nearly three years of marriage.

“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” the couple said in a statement through a rep. “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.”

Simpson-Wentz, 26, filed papers Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to TMZ. She is seeking joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their 2-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, in addition to spousal support. A date of separation was listed as “to be determined.”

Simpson-Wentz started dating the 31-year-old Fall Out Boy bassist in 2006. They announced their engagement in April 2008 and married a month later in a ceremony officiated by her father, Joe Simpson. The couple announced shortly afterward that they were expecting their first child.
