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.

Why would he want joint custody if he's always touring and on the road? You can't raise a child that way. Well...you can, but it isn't healthy. The child needs a stable home and constants in his life. He's the real victim here.

I'm all for fathers spending as much time with their children, but how as he tours, how will the joint phyiscal custody work? Surely, he can't expect to take the child? Then again, maybe the child could stay with his parents as grandparents need time too.

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.

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.

I'm in the same boat with you in regards to the idiot men out there.

Who the hell are you to assume what is quote: healthy? How unbelievably presumptuous of you. What exactly do you know, anyway?

At least they made two years. Some don't even make it that long. I hope they can work out any legal stuff for the well-being of their adorable little boy w/the stupidest name ever.

After the SNL debacle the business chose to get rid of her, not the other way around.

@Sociopaths are Sad

I totally agree with you. I also feel fake Ashley feels like she can do better and wants big $$$$$ for her next husband.

Off course there was no prenup, Papa JOE won't hear of them when his girls aren't earning much. So glad that bit him in the bum with Nick. Nick deserved every cent.

Ashley...maybe she should start working for her sisters clothing shoe line to see if Jess will give her a cut.

Yep Papa Joe has plans for this one...bigger plans, lol.
