He never wanted to get divorced in the first place, and now Pete Wentz doesn’t want to let his child go, either. Â 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. Â Wentz’s petition, on the other hand, says that he thinks each side should pay their own legal fees. Â This could be the beginning of a lengthy custody battle if the two cannot come to an agreement.
