Phew! We were nervous there that things were going to turn ugly!
Reports surfaced yesterday that Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were about to embark on a nasty custody and spousal support battle over their son, Bronx, but thankfully, sources close to the couple are claiming that the paperwork is not reflective of how the Fall Out Boy rocker truly feels!
The insider explains:
"Ashlee's family was really upset when they heard about the custody and support requests. And Pete felt really bad about it. He told Ashlee not to worry because he would be paying support. It doesn't seem like Pete was the one to make the decisions about support and custody, it sounds more like his lawyers were responsible for the move. He loves her and wishes they could stay married. They get along really well and have been so good about sharing time with Bronx. Pete is leaving to go on tour this week, and Ashlee's gone out of her way to make sure he can spend time with Bronx, they've already made a schedule that works for both of them. Pete made way more money than Ashlee did during their two year marriage, but that was because she was being a mom and not working, so he will definitely be supporting her."
Good to hear!
Although we would advise Pete to be very clear with his lawyers from now on about what exactly he is looking for in this divorce!
We're just happy to hear that they're both doing the right thing and making sure that their son's happiness is the number one priority during this whole mess! Keep it up, guys!
