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."

All of these end the same way for the same reason. These girls want a baby and then they quickly understand that being married is a career killer for them not to mention that they want to go back out and live that wild life. Now they have money to have nannies raise their children and can get back in the spotlight by going out, getting trashed and getting pictures taken with "the new guy." It's textbook, nothing to see here.

What exactly is 'irreconcilable differences'??? Do couples even try to make their marriages work? My parents mave been married for 62 years & I am sure they had their share of problems but they still managed to work things out & stay happily married. Stupid people....go to councelling...get help...you have a child to think about.

That's what you get when you marry someone for the wrong reasons. If they wanted real love they wouldn't limit themselves to fellow hollywood celebrities.

Looks like Ashlee was more of a professional hustler than anything else.

Some women have these celebrity babies just to guarantee they'll have a celebrity size income for the long term future.

Her unhappy, jealous sister Jessica probably had a hand in this too.

Jessica has been a wreck ever since her Ex-Husband Nick found happiness with another woman and is set to get married.

Jessica's desperate fake engagement to that ugly stud she's buying didn't fool anybody.

I hope they kept their eyeliner collections separate. This could get ugly.

This is sad. They seemed so happy. Interesting though that they could keep this whole thing under wraps while some other Z-list celebs can't get a coffee witout calling the tabloids?

Her creepy dictator daddy must have told her to move on and find someone making more money, he must be running low on cash.

He shouldn't have married this nobody without a prenup. Next time find a woman who's employed.

Translation: Ashley Simpson has a new album coming out and thinks she will sell more records if she is single.

Christina Aguilera must have figured the same after her new album bombed!

Just a thought ;]
