Ashlee Simpson -- NOT Knocked Up

2/27/2008 7:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Despite all the buzzy rumors, TMZ has confirmed with Ashlee Simpson herself she is not knocked up. The world is safe, folks.

Rumors lit up the Internet after Ash and boyfriend Pete Wentz made a kooky video saying they were having a baby to help put a stop to illegal music downloading. How anyone could take that seriously still remains unclear.

Sorry Papa Joe, no grandkids to exploit L.O.V.E. just yet.
