Pete Wentz -- I Did NOT Want This Divorce!

2/10/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pete Wentz is getting divorced against his will -- so say sources close to the rocker ... he absolutely did not want to end his marriage to Ashlee Simpson.

We're told Wentz tried talking Ashlee out of filing divorce papers, to no avail.  She wanted out of the marriage ... sources tell us.

In fact, Wentz was flashing his wedding ring and a HUGE smile all over Dallas this past weekend -- while his wife was back home in L.A. with their son Bronx

We're told Pete was partying like he didn't have a care in the world Saturday night at the Mercedes-Benz Tweet Race -- even posing for a pic on a massive live bull -- but not once did he mention anything about a possible divorce.

As TMZ first reported, Simpson filed divorce papers Wednesday morning -- and we're told the issue for her  was Pete's "erratic" behavior.

Ashlee - take some Midol and think about what you're doing to your son. Your husband does not want a divorce. Just because you're cranky and PMS'ing - you're going to destroy your son's world.

Oh shut up Disturbed! Pete has been known for years to have bi-polar disorder and be "troubled" and all that crap so no one should really be shocked by her reason for wanting a divorce. People don't just up and file for divorce after a few years just because they're cranky especially if they have a child together. And that "staying together for the kid" stuff is bull crap too, I'd much rather have my parents be divorced and better off then see them together everyday fighting and being miserable thinking they're "doing the right thing." Shotgun weddings hardly ever work out this is no exception....

She's likely getting relationship advice from her dumb-as-box-of-rocks sister, who also divorced a guy who didn't want to get divorced.

They have always been an unlikely coupling to me. I think she needed an excuse to dump him and called him erratic. I don't believe he is. Just that she doesn't want to be married anymore.

Very immature - those Simpson girls.

Poo (what an appropriate name) You sound like you could use a double dose of Midol yourself. If his bipolar disorder was such a problem, she sure didn't mind spreading her legs for him.
Think before you speak.

Daddy probably is behind this. Gee, now she can turn into a whore just like Jessica and sleep with everyone and anyone then buy herself a washed up football player too

The great thing, and can I hear a "whew!", is that Ashlee did all the right things: Lived with the guy before getting married, got pregnant before getting married, she got to wear those tight pregnancy t-shirts, and once married she is getting a divorce. Our little girl has gone all Hollywood on us! I have a tear in my eye.

I'm sure Ashley wanted to shock him. How long has Pete had that Wham/George Michael 80's hairstyle? It looks horrible.

" we're told the issue for her was Pete's "erratic" behavior."

Oh.

You mean he was acting like a normal, everyday, common, ordinary, 20-something DOLT.

Yeah.

Dump him.

And then find there is NOTHING better available in the year 2011.

I heard he's bipolar too. He has admitted to trying and killing himself by overdosing in the past.
Maybe he quit taking his meds. If that's the case then I don't blame Ashley. That is not a good environment to try and raise a small child.

Haha! In the bull photo he looks like a hairy 11 year old getting his picture taken with his mom. His feet don't even reach the stirrups!
