OLD NEWS: Ashlee Simpson files for divorce from Pete Wentz

Somehow this was caught as pending…. anyway, in case you didn’t know>>>

TMZ has learned … Ashlee Simpson just filed for divorce from hubby Pete Wentz . In documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Simpson cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. She’s asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of two-year-old Bronx . Simpson, who is repped by disso queen Laura Wasser , is also asking for spousal and child support.   Wentz is repped by Stacy Phillips . Sources tell TMZ there is no prenup. The couple married in May, 2008. The couple just released a joint statement, saying, “After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our number one priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.”

Sources connected with Pete Wentz tell TMZ …. Ashlee Simpson ‘s claim that Pete was just too erratic is b.s. — and they simply grew apart. 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.
