Ashlee Simpson Maintains That She Is Single!


Not so fast!

Despite reports that Ashlee Simpson is already bouncing back from her upcoming divorce from Pete Wentz with his friend, musician Craig Owens, sources close to the singer have revealed that she is, in fact, still single!

The insider reveals:

"Craig is a longtime friend and was comforting Ashlee during this difficult time. She's not moving on. There's no race for a new relationship. They're friends. Ashlee and Pete's split is amicable and they're working together to make this as positive a situation for [2-year-old son] Bronx as possible. Right now her attention is on Bronx and some new work projects she has coming up. That's it."

Hmm…yes, we could believe that they're friends. Friends that bump nasties!

LOLz! We kid, we kid!

Who knows what is actually going on?!

Frankly, it doesn't matter to us, so long as Bronx is getting the attention and focus that he very much needs right now!

The More You Know: Ashlee Simpson's New Man Edition!

Filed under: Love LineAshlee SimpsonPete Wentz


It's only been a month since Ashlee Simpson announced that she filed for a divorce from her husband Pete Wentz, but as we previously reported, she's already moved on to a new man.

Craig Owens is a musician, as we mentioned, previously of the band Chiodos before he was kicked out and currently of D.R.U.G.S. (Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows), who were just signed to Pete's record label. In between these two bands, Craig had A LOT of other musical ventures, including a solo project and assisting on some other band's albums, like Broadway and In Fear and Faith.

Outside of his musical interests, Craig likes to watch comedies on TV, like The Office and Eastbound and Down and deals with his manic depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety. Yeah, he's got some issues, but unlike some people who just hunker down in Sober Valley Lodge to Ustream their denial, Craig owns up to his problems and has been seeking help for years.

But the most important thing to know about Craig is that his biggest fan is none other than his mom Pete. Since last year, when Craig was signed to his label, he's done nothing but rave about him as a person and artist. Pete told MTV that Craig was his favorite up and coming performer and revealed he has some "amazing songs" in his arsenal.

We imagine Pete doesn't think he is so super-terrific these days…since he's smooching his wife for all the world to see!

Messy! Messy! Messy!

Pete Wentz Is Pissed His Pal Is Hooking Up With His Wife!


Can't say we blame the guy! Hasn't he ever heard of "The Bro Code"?

Earlier today, we reported the scoop that Ashlee Simpson has moved on from her not-so-officially ended marriage and is dating Craig Owens, a friend and recording artist under Pete Wentz's record label. Sources close to Pete say that the news of his friend dating his estranged wife has left him "shocked," especially after all he's done for him.

The source close to Pete reveals:

"Pete did a lot for this guy. Craig was in another band and got kicked out. Pete found Craig, built a band around him and signed him. He's shocked at how this guy is repaying him."

For sure! They've only been separated a month. Nothing's even legal yet. It is WAY too soon for Craig to be swooping in on his woman, if even at all!

However, people in AshSim's camp say this relationship is really good for her right now and she needs Craig in her life for comfort. The source explains:

"Ashlee and Craig are longtime friends. They have spent some time together, and he is comforting her throughout this difficult time."

We're glad to hear Ash is reaching out to people in her time of need, but maybe she should have stuck with her sister or her other girlfriends. As if Pete's life isn't difficult enough, not he has to see his protege get some serious face time with his wife!

Not coo, bro. Seriously, not cool .

Ashlee Simpson's Got A New Man!

Filed under: Love LineAshlee Simpson


Moving on rather quickly, wouldn't you say?

Sources report that during the week, Ashlee Simpson was spotted out shopping and "holding hands" with a man that is not her soon-to-be ex-husband, Pete Wentz.

Ash was actually canoodling with Craig Owens, the former frontman of Chiodos, as they headed to the Beverly Center for a little quality time. According to an insider:

“They were holding hands in the elevator and a lot of the time he had his arm around her. They even kissed each other on the lips. It was obvious that they were a couple.”

Normally, we'd say we're happy to see you moving on with your life, but this new relationship may end up being a bit messier than anyone would like. Turns out that Craig is actually a good friend of Pete's. So much so that his new band, D.R.U.G.S., just released its first album on Decaydance - Pete’s record label!

How long will the friendship/professional relationship last if Pete finds out Craig is Ash's new boytoy we wonder!

Think about what you are doing here, Yoko Ashlee. You and Pete are already in a rocky place. Is this guy really worth making things even more awkward for your family?
