Ashlee Simpson files for divorce from Pete Wentz

tbd-ashleesimpson021011.jpgThe shocker of the day: Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Pete Wentz. Actually, the shocking part is that they were married for almost a whole three years.

TMZ reports that Simpson filed in L.A. County Superior court Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences, which may mean she just couldn't handle his crazy, goofball behavior. She wants joint legal custody and primary physsical custody for 2-year-old son Bronx, and wants spousal and child support. Hey, at least they had a kid before getting divorced first. That's always good.

"After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce," the couple said in a joint statement. "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."

The next phase likely involves Ashlee trying to resurrect her singing career by capitalizing on all the attention she'll be getting for this. Hey, her sister Jessica tried it, didn't she?
