Ashlee Simpson Files for Divorce!
TMZ reports the 26-year-old mother of Bronx Mowgli Wentz filed divorce papers today in an L.A. County Superior Court. The documents say she has asked the judge for join custody of 2-year-old Bronx, and cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The couple were married in May of 2008 and reportedly did not have a prenup. They have a son, Bronx Mowgli, who was born in November 2008.
Just days ago on February 4, the two were spotted looking happy as they were out and about making a coffee run.
Simpson recently spoke with People just before the holidays, discussing their family’s plans. She said of Bronx’s Christmas:
“He just had his birthday, and he got a lot of gifts,” the 26-year-old singer tells People. “He’ll still have a great Christmas, and he’s really into Thomas the Train, but we have enough Thomas, so we do not need that this year! … For my husband and I, it’s nice to start those traditions now.”
The couple released a 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.”
