After two and a half years of marriage Ashley Simpson-Wentz, 26, has reportedly filed for divorce from her musician hubby Pete Wentz, 31.
The couple, who tied the knot in the spring of 2008 at Ashlee’s parent’s posh LA home, have a sweet little toddler, Bronx Mowgli, who was born seven months after the pair got married.
According to reports Ashlee, who took the step of hyphenating her last name, filed her divorce papers at L.A. County Superior Court noting irreconcilable differences as the reason for her desired split.
The young mother is also reportedly seeking spousal and child support from Pete who also founded the clothing company Clandestine Industries, runs the production company Bartskull Films and the NYC bar Angels & Kings.
Let’s hope all works out well for the trio.
Yesterday was the 20th Aniversary of A Time For Heroes Celebrity Carnival to benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, and lots of famous people came out for the cause. Ashlee Simpson and the newly-30 Pete Wentz brought out Bronx Mowgli, Mark Whalberg came with his family, Denise Richards took her daughter Lola and Vanessa Minillo went with Nick Lachey. Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Sharon Stone were also there.
Last night was the House of Harlow 1960 & Clandstine Industries Switch Boutique Fashion Show, which I was uber excited for. Nicole Richie was there (of course — love her ring, btw), but so was Pete Wentz! A lot of other people attended, but it dosn’t look like Ashlee was there.
Did Pete get a haircut?
Fall Out Boy performed live in Rockefeller Plaza earlier this morning as part of the Today show. I don’t wake up that early, so I missed the show. That said, the band has recently become one of my guilty pleasures (don’t judge, you know they’re all up in your iPod too!).
Plus, there’s something about Pete Wentz’s flat-ironed-to-perfection hair that does it for me. He also has perfect teeth, which sounds totally random and creepy, but it’s something that I pay attention to (see also: the hairline).
Last night was the Pepsi Smash Super Bowl Bash presented by VH1 and the NFL. The event hosted by Jerry O’Connell helped to kick off Super Bowl weekend, which I’m totally looking forward to. The last time the Steelers won the Super Bowl was a few years ago, and I ended up rioting in the streets with a bunch of drunk townies. Good times.
Anyway, I actually managed to catch some of the Pepsi Smash last night, while I was flipping between that Gordon Ramsay show and a Grey’s Anatomy rerun. Rihanna was amazing! I couldn’t tell if she was lip synching or not, but it didn’t really matter. She’s obviously uber talented.
Pete Wentz performed with his band, Fall Out Boy, at the Nokia Theatre in Times Square last night, and he really took things to an extreme. I’m not sure if he regularly wears stage makeup like that, but he seems to be able to pull it off okay. It kind of looks like somebody spray painted letters on his face, and I dig it.
He was also wearing his wedding ring during the show, which is something I wasn’t expecting. Don’t rock stars usually take them off?
The whole Simpson family (minus Jessica) watched Pete Wentz perform with his band. Fall Out Boy, last night. Ashlee was in the crowd with the fans, which is kind of cool.
This is one of the first times I’ve seen a post-baby Ashlee, and it looks like motherhood has really taken a toll on the poor girl. She looks exhausted about 50 pounds heavier, at least compared to these pictures. She should have found out what Nicole Kidman did during her pregnancy, because that lady came out of child birth looking better than she ever did!
Maybe Ashlee should get on that Acai Berry Diet that I keep seeing advertised everywhere on the Internet. I swear, I can’t check my email without hearing about the miracles that Acai berries can do.
After being pregnant for approximately three years and seven days (that’s what it seems to me, anyway), Ashlee Simpson has finally squeezed out her first baby with Pete Wentz. Woo hoo and congrats and everything, but what’s the name?!
Bronx Mowgli Wentz.
Excuse me, what? Bronx? The Beckham family already did that, and his name is Brooklyn. And Mowgli? Really?! The Jungle Book was one of Disney’s worst movies EVER, and now this poor kid has to live with a middle name straight out of it. Couldn’t they have gone with Gaston from Beauty and the Beast? Was Sebastian from The Little Mermaid already taken?
I suppose my expectations are kind of high since Harlow Winter first came into the world, but come on!
Is it just me, or does Pete Wentz not seem like as big of a toolbag as he used to? It looks like being married to Ashlee Simpson is agreeing with him, and I’m happy to see that he’s toning down the guyliner use a bit.
Here he is, surfing on a car (okay, okay…I take back that bit about not being a toolbag) during the OP summer party for their new ad campaign. On the bright side, at least his kid will have a fun dad to play around with. I guess.
It’s reported that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz will be getting married very soon and in anticipation, father of the bride Joe Simpson enjoyed a dinner date with son-In-law-to-be Pete Wentz and Pete’s dad at Mr. Chow last night before the wedding. Pete and his dad slipped out the back of the restaurant, avoiding photographers.
It’s reported that Ashlee Simpson, 23, is expecting her first child with fiance Pete Wentz, 28. The couple announced their engagement on Wednesday, 4/9/08. A spokesperson for the couple said, “We are thrilled to confirm their engagement and congratulate this happy couple…Beyond that there is nothing to say.” Ashlee is scheduled to release her new album, Bittersweet World on April 22.
Reports are that Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have confirmed that they’re planning to get married. The couple said in an online statement, “We know there has been a lot of speculation recently about Pete and I and we wanted our fans to be the first to know, because you guys are the best. Yes, we are thrilled to share that we are happily engaged. Thank you for all of your support and well wishes – it means the world to us. We consider this to be a very private matter, but we wanted you to hear it straight from us.”
Congratulations to the happy…and very cute…couple!
Ashlee Simpson enjoyed a stroll with boyfriend Pete Wentz and friends in South Beach following her “Outta My Head” CD signing at a local Wal-Mart yesterday. The couple was all smiles and looked as in love as ever as they walked hand-in-hand in the sunshine before stopping for a bite to eat at a trendy restaurant. Simpson was wearing her promise ring, a present from Wentz, on her engagement finger and she tried to keep her new arm tattoo out of view.
