Looks like Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz‘s divorce isn’t as amicable as it may seem. According to recent reports, Ashlee was the one to demand a divorce and her rocker man tried his hardest to get her to stay.
According to TMZ, Pete tried to convince Ashlee not to file divorce papers, but she filed for irreconcilable differences anyway.
Pete went to Dallas last weekend for the Super Bowl, where he was spotted all across town wearing his wedding ring, while Ash was in L.A. with their two-year-old son Bronx.
Reportedly, Pete did not mention anything about a possible divorce. He was seen partying and one night he rode a bull — and won the competition! — at the Mercedes-Benz Tweet Race Winner Announcement held at Leigh Steinbergs on Feb. 5.
The couple released a joint statement yesterday, making their decision to split sound mutual and amicable.
“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.”
The Fall Out Boy frontman posted a cryptic Tweet on Monday, fueling fire to the theory that he did not want to split.
“dont forget 2 notice-when i look into the lil dudes eyes & smile, the way he loves. i realize @ashsimpsonwentz is a good moma + so much more” he Tweeted.
