Hope may not be playing a factor in the pending divorce of Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz any longer.
This back and forth battle just keeps getting nastier and nastier.
Even though we spotted them looking fine just a little more than a week ago, and they spend Valentines Day together in Beverly Hills, the divorce between Simpson and Wentz looks like it’s going downhill, and fast!
First it was sources close to Simpson saying it was Pete’s touring that tore the family apart, but then sources close to Wentz started saying while he was touring, Ashlee Simpson was partying excessively and not being a good mother to their son, Bronx.
Your move, Ashlee!
In the latest dish on the divorce, The National Enquirer is reporting that Pete Wentz had a problem with prescription pills, which is another factor in the split.
A source tells the mag, “Pete Wentz is hooked on a handful of prescription drugs including Ambien, Xanax, and Oxycontin. Ashlee realized that Pete had become a functioning addict and that he wasn’t making any effort to quit.”
Harsh! Pete’s posse are going to have to find a way to beat that in the press! Who knows which, if any, are true, or if they all lead to the eventual break=up of the marriage.
We just hope it’s not too hard on the kid!
