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."

Marriage is a commitment and you work through it thick or thin, right? I've been married 25 years and not all of those years were rosy, but we worked through and stayed together because we love each other and honor our marriage vows. People shouldn't get married if they don't intend to work through the tough times. All marriages have their tough times - work through the tough times people (unless you are getting abused, beat up or your life is in danger) That's my thought anyway.

Well, that certainly came out of the blue! I thought he worshiped her?

The Simpson girls don't seem to have much luck in the romance dept.

sorry to hear about this, especially since a child's involved.

Why are you super psyched? Because you think you actually have a chance? LOL. Not likely, dude. She looks 100% better since she got her nose fixed and the chin implant.

Now if she only got her ears pinned - she'd be a real beauty.

Pete was a tool anyway. It's sad for the kid, but this wasn't going to last. They barely knew each other when she got pregnant..and he's a musician - away from home far too much.

Lanie why are you commenting on her looks. You are a pathetic excuse for a woman. Oh pin her ears back then she'll be a beauty? Good lord crawl back under the rock you slithered from. Women have enough to deal with being evaluated on their cup size and looks. You are a disgrace to your own gender. God knows how many plastic surgery procedures YOU'D need to meet our culturally based standard of beauty. This why teenage girls develop eating disorder. Disgusting cows like you slamming people's looks.

Bottom Line is we live in a different world today than 40 years ago

Marriages don't last long because people dont take the time to work on them

you won't see many 40, 50 year unions much more

Ashlee took her sisters path and just bailed out

only difference is Jessica and Nick didn't have kids

The kids are the ones who get hurt the most
