Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz sparked rumors of a reconciliation with their public Valentine’s Day date but a source tells us what’s really going on

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz had us all buzzing this morning after photos emerged of the couple on a very public Valentine’s Day date with their son Bronx. Are they getting back together? A friend of the couple’s talk to and explains their date.

“They did the lunch solely for Bronx and his well being,” reveals our source. “Pete and Ashlee are trying to make things as normal for him as possible. A divorce is always hardest on the children involved, and they are remaining civil and friendly to put on a united front for their son.”

Pete, 31, is apparently heartbroken over Ashlee, 26, filing divorce papers. Meanwhile, Ashlee has moved in with her sister Jessica and reportedly taken Bronx with her.

It’s comforting to know two-year-old Bronx’s parents are putting him first, and avoiding the drama that often go hand-in-hand with divorces and custody battles. Hopefully they can continue to be civil as the proceedings continue.
