Ashlee Simpson-Wentz filed for divorce from hubby Pete Wentz in L.A. County Superior Court Wednesday, citing “irreconcilable differences,” RadarOnline.com has learned.
The 26-year-old ex-Melrose Place star married the Fall Out Boy rocker at her parents’ Encino home in May 2008, and the two have a 3-year-old son named Bronx Mowgli Wentz.
Ashlee, who’s represented by powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser, is requesting joint legal custody and primary physical custody of Bronx, as well as spousal and child support. Stacy Phillips will representing the Illinois native Pete, 31.
The split comes as a shock in Hollywood, where the pair were though to be a happy duo: In fact, just two days ago, we caught up with Pete at Dragon Books in Bel Air, where he told RadarOnline.com exclusively he’d planned a “surprise” for his wife this Valentine’s Day.
If Ashlee needs some advice on the divorce process, she needn’t look farther than her sister Jessica, who split with ex-husband Nick Lachey in 2005. Jessica announced her engagement to her new beau, former NFL tight end Eric Johnson, this past November.
