Ashlee Simpson + Pete Wentz’s Divorce Is Finalized
The two pop stars filed papers to end their three year long marriage back in February of this year, citing irreconcilable differences. The papers became finalized on Nov. 22, according to PEOPLE magazine.
Unlike most high-profile breakups and divorces, Simpson and Wentz, who have a three-year-old son, Bronx Mowgli, have remained civil with each other when publicly addressing their relationship and where they went wrong.
“Ashlee’s been my best friend for five years,” Wentz told Ryan Seacrest back in March, shortly after news broke of their split. “She’s the mother of my child. I have nothing but love and respect for her. Going through something like this isn’t easy, but we’re friends, and the most important thing is to put our son first.”
The marriage was the first for both Simpson, 27, and Wentz, 32. Bronx is the only child for Simpson and Wentz who wed in 2008.
Since their parting of ways, both sides have moved on with other relationships. Simpson is now dating ‘Boardwalk Empire’ star Vincent Piazza and Wentz is currently seeing model Meagan Camper.
