Once again, hectic celebrity schedules break yet another marriage. However, both Ashlee and her ex-husband Pete seem to be moving on.
Singer songwriter, actress and reality show participant Ashlee Simpson seems to moved on in life after her divorce from her husband, Pete Wentz, but for songwriter and bassist of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz the step forward has been nothing short of traumatic.
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were immediately attracted to each other when they first met in 2006 and by 2008 the couple were deeply involved with each other and decided to get married. Later on in that year, Ashlee gave birth to their son Bronx Mowgli Wentz. But, the initial happy days were soon transformed by marital issues that came up between the two and by 2011, Ashlee had called it quits and filed for divorce from Pete Wentz citing irreconcilable differences.
While, the divorce was an amicable one and the tabloids didn’t have much sensational behind-the-scenes dirt to dish out, sources have pointed out that Pete’s increasing tour gigs with his band and not giving much time to his new wife and baby might have contributed to Ashlee feeling disgruntled.
According to these sources, Ashlee had opted to make more time for her child after his birth and had accordingly decreased her music work and had thought Pete too, would feel the same way and focus on producing music from home instead of doing touring gigs. Constant arguments regarding this made the couple grow apart fast and lead to Ashlee going for divorce.
Since then,Pete Wentz has publicly acknowledged how his divorce from Ashlee added to his drug abuse problems. Though Pete had drug abuse issues from before, he had reduced the intake after the birth of his son. But, the divorce led him to increased abuse of prescription pills Xanax and Klonopin and even to incidents of paranoia. Pete is now in a much better place and is in a serious relationship with model girlfriend Meagan Camper.
Ashlee Simpson, almost immediately after her divorce got into the dating scene and was soon in a relationship with actor Vincent Piazza. But, their hectic schedules made them call it off by 2012. In 2013, Ashlee began dating iconic singer Diana Ross’ son, actor Evan Ross and in 2014 took it a step further by getting engaged to him.
