He never wanted to get divorced in the first place, and now Pete Wentz doesn’t want to let his child go, either.  Ashlee Simpson’s divorce petition asks the court for sole custody with visitation rights for Wentz, but Wentz has now filed a counter petition asking the court for joint physical custody.

In addition, Simpson’s petition stipulated that she thought Wentz should have to pay her legal fees as well as his own.  Wentz’s petition, on the other hand, says that he thinks each side should pay their own legal fees.  This could be the beginning of a lengthy custody battle if the two cannot come to an agreement.
