Pete told Ryan Seacrest the ordeal hasn’t been easy.

Pete Wentz opened up about his custody battle with Ashlee Simpson in a new interview this morning, March 14th, with Ryan Seacrest on KIIS-FM. “I mean, going through something like this isn’t easy,” said Pete. “But we’re friends. I mean, the most important thing is to put our son first. It’s like the one time on earth I’m like, ‘Thank God, Charlie Sheen exists!'”

Pete went on to say, “Ashlee’s been my best friend for five years. She’s the mother of my child. I have nothing but love and respect for her.” Way to take the high road, Pete! We love to see a dad who knows there’s nothing to be gained by trashing the mother of your baby!

When Ryan asked about Pete and Ashlee’s son, Bronx, Pete said, “He’s doing awesome. He’s crazy. He learns something new every day. Everything is like a new discovery for him. All of the sudden he’s opening doors. He’s learning to paint. He has a crazy memory. His new thing is like hiding cell phones and credit cards and stuff. ‘Where’s dad’s cell phone?’ He just laughs. He thinks it’s like a comedy act or something!”
