Ashlee And Pete SPLIT!
Well we didn’t see this one coming! Fans will be shocked to hear Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are getting divorced!
According to TMZ, Jessica Simpson’s little sis filed a document to Los Angeles Superior Court, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split. The talented pair, who tied the knot in May 2008, have a two year-old son, Bronx.
Confirming the sad news in an official statement, they said: “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce.”
