Pete Wentz Loves Underaged Kids

6/1/2009 1:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pete Wentz Fallout BoyWhat's the secret to Fallout Boy's success among the young kids? Booze. And lots of it.

Pete Wentz's New York City bar, Angels and Kings, has been shut down for a few days for allegedly serving alcohol to minors, Gawker is reporting. The bass player (who moonlights as Ashlee Simpson's baby-daddy/husband) has had some legal trouble in the past -- apparently this is the bar's third violation.

A rep for the bar told us they didn't know anything about the closure -- but the bar's website says it's supposed to be closed yesterday and today for "maintenance issues."

Maintaining what -- a .08 blood alcohol level on underage kids?

A rep for A&K gave us this statement: "There was an outstanding legal issue which the owners are now working to correct."

So there.

Pete isn't the only person who owns the bar there are other people who are celbs who co-own it with him so not all the responsiblity falls on him to hire good staff

Oh, please. The amount of times in high school I heard all the 16-year-olds talking about going to bars and getting totally wasted.
Besides, I'm pretty positive it wasn't Pete at the door carding people and failing miserably. This isn't anything new. It's a bar. This happens.

Pete probably has absolutely nothing to do with the hiring of bartenders/door staff. Yes, he owns the place but that doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the hiring of staff. Same goes with the one in Chicago.
