Ashlee Simpson files for divorce

It looks like Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson won’t be married for much longer, as Ashlee filed for divorce a couple of days ago in Los Angeles.  The official papers cite “irreconcilable differences,” but sources close to Ashlee have said that she wanted to get out of the marriage because her husband’s behavior was often out of control.

Pete Wentz is said to be against the idea of divorce, and he tried to talk Ashlee out of the decision, to no avail.  Once it became clear that she would not be talked out of it, Pete did what he thought was best for their child and went along with the divorce petition.
