Ashlee Simpson Files For Divorce From Pete Wentz! They Have No Prenup! What Went Wrong?

In shocking breaking news, Ashlee Simpson files for divorce and asks for primary physical custody of Bronx

Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from husband of almost three years, Pete Wentz. TMZ reports Ashlee cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason and is asking for joint legal custody of their two-year-old son Bronx, as well as primary physical custody.

Ashlee is also requesting spousal and child support from Pete. The former couple reportedly have no prenup.

Pete, 31, and Ashlee, 26, were married in May 2008 and were often spotted out with their baby Bronx. Friends of Ashlee are blaming the split on Pete’s “erratic behavior” and his desire to stay in the entertainment business. Pete’s camp claims they just grew apart. Friends of both agree no third party was involved.

The couple released a joint statement, which we obtained through Pete’s rep: “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”

Sources close to Pete say he wants not only joint legal but joint physical custody of Bronx, so that might prove to be an issue.

At least Ashlee has her sister Jessica to rely on during this tough time. Jessica has been through a very public divorce with Nick Lachey. Pete and Ashlee are among many celebrities who keep their marital troubles secret. Are you surprised to hear they are getting divorced?

There is nothing wrong with them or the young couples either…The problem is marriage does not work and no one can’t seriously expect two people to vow to stay together “until death do us part” unless they are also vowing to stay with their partners even if they are very unhappy and want to be happy by themselves or with someone else….Marriage is unnatural and unrealistic… just telling it like it is…look around and see how many couples look still “happy” after being married for a while (even though nobody knows what’s behind closed doors)

I’m not surprised they are getting a divorce, they seemed to dive into marrige really quickly. Most people would wait way longer before they got married. Ashlee got pregnant really early on the realtionship I think there could’ve been a lot of pressure from Ashlee’s family to get married. If Ashlee hadn’t gotten pregnant her and Pete probably wouldn’t have stayed in a realtionship for as long as they have, the arrival of the baby obviously gave them a big reason to try and stick it out together. So I’m really not surprised that they have decided to end it.

What is wrong wth Hollywood couples? Look at Jeff Bridges and his wife that have been together over 3 decades. If pity the children of these couples. They end up with not knowing who their father is. And all the money spent on this wedding could feed a children’s home for a long time. I am so disgusted with Hollywood marriages.

I feel bad for them but I don’t think it is just “Hollywood” couples who take marriage too lightly. I think it is younger people in general, and there probably is some truth to Ashlee’s family putting pressure on them to get married when she got pregnant. I just hope everything works out for them and there isn’t a lot of drama. Bronx deserves parents who can get along, even if they aren’t married.
