Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and Pete Wentz have had a falling out. After nearly three years of marriage, ET confirms the two are divorcing.
“After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce," the couple told ET in a joint statement. "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."
Ashlee and Pete's son Bronx Mowgli Wentz is two years old. The pair were married in May 2008, when Ashlee was 23 and Wentz was 28. It was recently announced that Ashlee's sister Jessica, who filed for divorce from Nick Lachey in 2005, is engaged to former NFL player Eric Johnson.
