Ashlee Simpson’s Marriage Ends

Another one bites the dust!

26-year-old pop singer Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, younger sister of singer Jessica Simpson, filed for divorce yesterday from her husband of almost three years, Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, 31.

The two married in May 2008 and gave birth to their first son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, six months later.

In a joint statement, Simpson and Wentz said, “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.”
