Pete Wentz: Ashlee and I Just Grew Apart

2/9/2011 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources connected with Pete Wentz tell TMZ ... Ashlee Simpson's claim that Pete was just too erratic is BS -- and they simply grew apart.

Pete Wentz

We're told Pete agrees with Ashlee -- no third parties were involved.  According to one connected source, "After Bronx was born Ashlee made a conscious decision to get out of the business, but Pete's heart was in music so he kept touring and that became a big issue in their relationship."

A conflict has already emerged, because sources tell TMZ Pete wants joint legal and physical custody of Bronx.  In Ashlee's divorce papers, she's asking for primary physical custody.

Ashlee made a conscious decision to get out of the business = couldn't get any acting roles & her music failed.

And OF COURSE she will be asking for spousal support. She's a Simpson after all, right?

Simsons = What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine.

And the fact that Pete is gay was a problem too.

Aaaaaaand I was right. How can she know her husband when he's touring all the time? But now, he must not be on the road.

They were a very cute couple together, but I think he's a cheater when he's on the road and she had enough of it.

srsly    

Pete is actually quite talented and that's a heavy burden. Ashlee would be pretty unable to relate to that concept.

Also will you racist ****wits ixnay the hair comments? Not everyone has straight hair. Get over it.

Sorry but that comment was for the Lilo being charged thread.

Now re: Simspon Wentz

Ashley had no career to speak of anymore. She married a musician what did she expect.

Her sister flies around the country and world with her paid piece.

Do not like the Simpson's. Hope Pete is happy and gets over this. I do think the child needs a stable situation so if he is not going to be around then...

Challenging.

I really think she is a waste product. She drinks too much and is conceited. Lies about the plastic surgery and now believes her own hype.

Oh yes, the story of a chick.

Marry a musician and then expect him to somehow change his DNA to suit what's best for her.

I'm not gay, but seriously with the idiot females out there, it's no wonder I haven't changed teams yet.

@ #13 Sam: There is something about both Simpson sisters (& Papa Joe) that absolutely disgusts me. So FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE. And stupid. And talentless. And think they are better than everyone. Do not feel sad for Jessica being used by her opportunist loser. But at least she can pay for him. Ashlee needs to be paid by Pete. LOL.
