Pete's Telling Friends He & Ashlee "Grew Apart"

| Filed under: Baby BlabberLegal MattersLove LineAshlee SimpsonPete WentzSad Sad


Team Ashlee had their turn to tell their version - now Team Pete is telling a completely different one.

Conflicting stories are arising to explain why Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from Pete Wentz this week. One source earlier in the day claimed that Ashlee was fed up with Pete's "erratic" behavior, but a source close to Pete is saying that isn't the case.

According to an insider, Pete is telling friends that he and Ashlee have grown apart in recent years, adding:

"After Bronx was born Ashlee made a conscious decision to get out of the business, but Pete's heart was in music so he kept touring and that became a big issue in their relationship."

So, distance didn't make the heart grow fonder. We get it. But Pete hasn't been touring for awhile now, has he? We feel like we've seen them together a lot over the past year.

This also doesn't explain why Ashlee is looking for spousal support on top of child support and primary custody. As she already has enough of her own money, the only reason to go after his is for retribution. He had to have done SOMETHING to piss her off! However, this source is echoing previous reports that there was no third party involved with their split.

But then the source added that Pete wants joint legal and physical custody of Bronx, which conflicts with Ashlee's petition for primary physical custody.

Oh geez. Let's hope this doesn't get ugly. Remember guys, you keep telling us this split is amicable. Let's try and keep it that way.

    So he did not quit his band and do nothing with her? She is so full of self hate. Anyone who butchers her face the way she did is messed up. She is a jerk.

  2. 2

    what's sad…is the people get married..have a kid, then break up a year later. good grief — it's a never ending and the children suffer the most. Who cares about these two idiots.

  3. 3

    She quit the business because she was run out of the business. And as for Pete, are you kidding me….both talentless trolls.

  4. 4

    'grew apart' means another selfish man not ready to put in the time to raise his own child 'cuz he's too busy being one.
    Sure happens a lot in hollywood, huh?

  5. 5

    Maybe she caught him doing drugs or something that made her feel unsafe in a way that she would not want to leave their child with him.

    Yep, sombody's gay.

    Re: Beccx – Lol you pretty much said what I thought.

    They grew apart in recent years? They've only been together in recent years…4 years tops. They got married because she was pregnant, so I guess they tried to do the right thing. Those sisters are screwed up thanks to their parents.

  9. 9

    Ugh, who cares.

  10. 10

    Guys can't handle Daddy Joe's meddling/control.

  11. 11

    Got out of the business? Didn't she say she was recording an album sometime this year?

  12. 12

    Isn't he bisexual? I wonder if that had a hand in it.

  13. 13

    He married her only because he got her pregnant out of wedlock.
    This was never meant to be.

  14. 14

    Re: Lejardin7 – I agree. Raising kids takes a toll on ANY marriage and if you can't stick this out -well, then, what in life CAN you stick out? Like it or not, he made that child and needs to focus on that kid. I feel bad for baby Bronx too.

  15. 15

    As far as him having "erratic behavior" a friend of my husband's (who both grew up in the same vicinity as Wentz) had "jammed" with him before he was even considering becoming 'famous'- that friend said that Wentz WAS like that but it wasn't something he did for attention, he had bi-polar disorder. And I have heard that it can take quite a toll on a marriage - that + a child. I can see where it might be a mountain to climb, but still no excuse.

    "After Bronx was born Ashlee made a conscious decision to get out of the business…"

    So she lip-synced, couldn't act, and got a nose job thinking to boost her carrer… EPIC FAIL- that is now being blamed on a baby! Im sure she blames Pete for ruining her figure too lawl

    "…his also doesn't explain why Ashlee is looking for spousal support on top of child support and primary custody."

    The public doesn't needs an explanation. Look at you going crazy trying to figure out what happened. Nobody but them two will EVER know. Moving on….

  18. 18

    Maybe she lip-synched "I do"

  19. 19

    Who cares? They stopped being significant a long ass time ago. He's a loser with the hair of a douchebag and she's about as ugly as my dogs balloon knot.

  20. 20

    he seems like a really nice guy i think its more prob her end and her sister look what the sister just did.. i think ashley had a shot but now its blown i feel sorry for pete, the kid is adorable spousal support!! u push out a kid and now u want to latch on for life???

  21. 21

    Why do you keep saying she has her own money and you're so shocked she is seeking spousal support? Where do you think she has all this money from? She didn't have a hugely successful career. Her FAMILY has money, but that isn't hers. He seems to be worth far more. Obviously it doesn't look like they are parting best friends, so why wouldn't she seek alimony?

  22. 22

    I read today that he is touring and has been with a new band. Check your facts, Perez.

  23. 23

    Wait, I thought FOB only toured for a couple months after his kid was born.
    Then he stopped for like-ever, and then came back recentley w/ a new band.

  24. 24

    Anyways, I kinda support their break-up, maybe FOB will get back together and he can get back to writing songs

  25. 25

    Um, while his wife was at home taking the baby to playdates and cleaning up that stupid dog's mess he was "discovering" an unknown singer whose voice is *very* similar to Ashlees only about a hundred times better; shes a young chick singer, just like Ashlee but instead of offering her a place on his label once she got a band together he created a band *around* her and started promoting how hot and talented she was, touring, jamming, and doing sessions…

    I'll tell you what. That would piss *me* off. Bet Pete didn't make it home with his phone off and all his friends swearing they hadn't seen him a couple times too many.

    Tut. What a jerk. He was supposed to be the grownup for once.

  26. 26

    cant you find your own stories pimple-face Perez? tttmmzzz loves you

  27. Sanz says – reply to this


    Thisll sound a bit mean but in the picture you posted their child looks about 40 in the face :/

  28. 28

    she caught him cheating on her with that singer from his new band

    Re: poorlittlerichiegirl – Boi or gurl?

    First she marries a rock star, then, she want's a divorce because…he's a rock star. Dumb Kunt.

  31. 31

    Re: hoochpit – Ah haha summed it up perfectly.

  32. 32

    It's really sad that Pete gave up his band and (lost) quite a bit of fans when they got together only to have it bite him in the ass. Next time Pete should be more humble and choose his partners wisely.

  33. Bboss says – reply to this


    Let me put this simply. This is not your business and they don't owe you an explanation. Respect their wish to respect their privacy. Go away Mario.

    I knew this marriage wasn't going to last. They got married because she got pregnant. Alot of marriages like that don't last. People do grow apart. I have alot of friends who got married just because of a pregnancy, and none of their marriages lasted. They grew apart!!
