TMZ broke the news earlier that Ashlee Simpson-Wentz filed for divorce today from Pete Wentz, citing the all-too-familiar “irreconcilable differences.”
Wentz and Simpson released a joint-statement today:
“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 number one priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”
Last October, Pete sat down for an interview with “The Ralphie Radio Show” – and chatted about balancing life on the road with marriage and a child.
“Whenever Ashlee’s not doing stuff, we kind of try to coordinate our schedules,” said Wentz. “So like, Bronx has been to Japan, he’s been to Europe. A big misnomer is that Fall Out Boy slowed down because of Bronx coming out, and that’s not the case at all. I definitely want him to see the world, and see it on the record company’s dime is rad.”
