It was reported back in February that singer and actor Ashlee Simpson and Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz had split up. It was also claimed that Ashlee had filed for immediate divorce citing irreconcilable difference. However, the couple still remain married.
Now it appears that the divorce wheels are firmly in motion as the couple met with their divorce lawyers earlier this week. It is believed that Simpson is seeking joint custody as well as primary custody of their son Bronx, who was born on November 20, 2008.
Ashlee Simpson was also spotted in New York City over the weekend spending some quality time with her new boyfriend, actor Vincent Piazza. The couple headed to the La Bottega restaurant for a bite to eat and were said to be touchy feely throughout the meal.
