Ashlee Simpson Cancels Tour to Prepare Next Major Release

It might have taken a while for Ashlee Simpson to ‘fess up about her pregnancy, but now that the pre-born is out of the bag, young Ashlee is wasting no time slipping into mommy mode.

“After careful consideration, Ashlee Simpson has decided to postpone her summer tour,” a publicist for Mrs. Pete Wentz announced on Saturday, according to People magazine.

While no official reason was given for the decision, it’s safe to say that her mother-to-be status played a crucial factor. Which already makes her a more considerate parent than Papa Joe.

Simpson’s publicist went on to offer assurance to Ashlee’s admirers, stating, “She is committed to giving her fans the best show possible, and will be back better than ever and ready to rock in the future.”

Which should make for a refreshing change of pace.
