One theory to the Ashlee Simpson Pete Wentz divorce went something like this. Ashlee liked hanging around with Pete when they were boyfriend and girlfriend. The guy was edgy and had said he even made out with guys. He was something far removed from her conservative father and when Ashlee got pregnant they decided to get married. Apparently though, it was only their son that even kept them together this long. The theory continues that Pete was trying to do the right thing and cut way back on band stuff and touring to try and make it work. At the same time he was cutting back, Ashlee was seeing her career go into a tailspin and has never recovered. Pete is always about working and family and Ashlee wanted nothing more than to party and to go out every night.
The one flaw in this theory is that Ashlee said in her court papers she wants primary physical custody and that Pete should just get some visitation. I think part of that is because she wants huge child support and spousal support payments. I also think that she will hire a fleet of nannies and continue to go out every night much like she did the week prior to filing for divorce.
