Ashlee Simpson, 26, and Pete Wentz, 31, didn’t make it. The couple is divorcing after 2 ½ years of marriage.
According to PEOPLE, “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” a spokesperson for the couple said. “We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”
TMZ stated that documents for their divorce were filed by Simpson on Tuesday in L.A. Superior Court. Simpson cited “irreconcilable differences” and is seeking spousal support.
Already-signed court papers are currently without an official date for separation. Simpson is seeking custody of 2-year-old son Bronx with visitation by Wentz. Simpson also wants to drop “Wentz” from her name – uh yeah?
Simpson reportedly said that Wentz’s behavior was “too erratic.” Rumors have circulated that the couple has been in trouble for a while because of their diverging careers, jealousy and generally just growing apart.
The two married in May 2008 after announcing that they were having a baby, Bronx Mowgli Wentz. They started dating in the fall of 2006.
