Ashlee Simpson

Files for Divorce

2/9/2011 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned ... Ashlee Simpson just filed for divorce from hubby Pete Wentz.

Ashlee Simpson Divorce
In documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Simpson cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce.

She's asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of two-year-old Bronx.

Simpson, who is repped by disso queen Laura Wasser, is also asking for spousal and child support.   Wentz is repped by Stacy Phillips.

Sources tell TMZ there is no prenup. The couple married in May, 2008.

The couple just released a joint statement, saying, "After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce.

We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our number one priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives."

I really don't get those of you laughing like idiots. There is another child here who will only get to see his Dad on the weekends, and be smothered in Simpson...ness. I thought Ashlee was the more grown-up one, but she couldn't even keep a commitment as long as Jessica. Divorce is always sad, unless someone has been getting the $*#@ beat out of them.

Seems to me like she wants to follow in her sisters foot steps. Jessica shouldn't have treated Nick so badly. Now all her relationships fall apart. Hope her sister can learn from her mistakes. I think they can work it out!

I hope wedding number 2 is better for you and your sister. Who am I kidding. You girls go thru men like nose jobes and boob lifts.

I am sure this is all a publicity stunt, has papa Joe written all over it. Poor Ashlee has no businesses, no money and papa Joe has no control. What better way to get Ashlee's name in the press again. I see her starting on another album and tour and no divorce.
