In surprising celebrity news today, Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from husband of two and half years Pete Wentz. They cited “irreconcilable differences” as the motive behind the split. The couple began dating in the fall of 2006, but denied the relationship for months. They announced their engagement in April 2008, and married a month later in Ashlee’s family’s home. Her father Joe, a former minister, officiated the ceremony.
The couple have a two year old son together, Bronx. Ashlee is seeking full physical custody of the child, and spousal support.
