Pete Wentz was recently interviewed by Rolling Stone Magazine [via Radar Online], and he discusses his past issues with drug addiction as well as his painful divorce from Ashlee Simpson. Less than five years ago, Wentz was the lead singer of Fall Out Boy, and married to one of the most famous women in Hollywood. However, Wentz reveals that it all started to go downhill in 2009, when the band took a hiatus and he started abusing prescription pills.

He explained, "I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled." He adds that it got worse after he and Ashlee Simpson divorced, which happened around February 2011. He says, "I felt like a loser already. I’d basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy who, like, hangs out all day. I didn’t see how I’d ever come out on the other side.”
 
The public interest in his divorce didn't help matters, and Wentz explains that he got a little paranoid in the wake of the tabloid interest. He says, "I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy.”

Pete Wentz now seems to be in a much better place than before, both with himself and his self-image. He openly mocks his younger self's public persona, and adds that his son comes first. His full interview with Rolling Stone will be out with the latest issue of the magazine, out on stands this week.
