Ashlee Simpson & Pete Wentz

Officially Divorced

12/7/2011 12:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson divorced
They said it wouldn't last ... and they were right -- because Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson are officially divorced ... after a judge signed off on the split.

According to court docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ ... the marriage was formally terminated on November 22 ... after a 3-and-a-half year run.

As for the couple's kid -- Bronx Mowgli -- it's unclear how the couple settled their custody disagreement ... because the details of the divorce settlement are being kept under wraps.  TMZ previously reported, Pete wanted joint custody of their son ... but Ashlee had checked the box to get primary physical custody.

The former couple also worked out a secret deal regarding the division of their multi-million dollar empire.

As we previously reported, Wentz chalked up the split to the couple simply growing apart.

Will Ashlee Simpson continue her acting career? She is very talented and was great on the new Melrose Place. Oh, I forgot they fired her from that show because she had no talent, forget my comment

If I was delusional I would say that is good news for me. She was out with her sister the other week and she looked goooooood! She might be one of those girls that climbs the hot scale as she ages!!!

TMZ, where's this story?? This is way more newsworthy than the stories you7've ran today. A legend's health is in danger!

Michael Lohan just can’t catch a break.

Lindsay Lohan’s father was released from a Ft. Myers, Florida hospital on Wednesday morning following his heart surgery, and has exclusively learned that he has been rushed back to the emergency room with a staph infection.

“When Michael went back to the rehab center he was running a really high fever, so he went directly back to the hospital,” his friend Tom Murro told “He’s in the emergency room now.”

Michael had surgery to unclog his artery to repair a blockage in his heart in a Florida hospital and the surgery was successful so he was released back to rehab, only to return almost immediately to the hospital.

The 50-year old father of four is in the court appointed rehab following his two arrests for domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend Kate Major.

He will return to rehab once he is released from the hospital.

The best decision this chick ever did - was to get her nose done. And her chin fixed. She was ick before, but she looks good now, but that hair is horrendous.

She either needs her ears pinned or she needs to cover those elf ears up!

BTW, Jessica should get her schnooze fixed too. The hump in it is looking more harsh with age, just like Farrah Fawcett's did. Eek.

Does someone actually care about this?

For sure the kid is going to change his name as soon as he turns 18. Nothing says 'I love you' more, than your parents naming you after a gorilla at the zoo.

Whatever. I'm just waiting for their kid to get old enough to sue them both for giving him such a moronic name.

It is only "their" multi-million dollar fortune because they were married. In reality I bet Pete is responsible for 80-90% of their assets. What has Ashley ever done beyond being Jessica's sister and having one album that sold modestly well at best?
