Ashlee Simpson is hoping to get primary physical custody of her and Pete Wentz’s 2-year-old son Bronx. Probably because she loves the child
support with all her heart. I guess that sounds like a cynical way of interpreting this. That is until you find out Ashlee wants the court to make Pete pay for both of their legal fees. Unsurprisingly, Pete has taken issue with that.
Wentz just filed legal papers in response to Ashlee’s divorce petition … asking the judge for JOINT physical and legal custody of their son. In her divorce petition, Ashlee checked the box that indicated she wanted primary physical custody.
According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court and obtained by TMZ, Wentz also wants each party to pay their own legal fees … even though Ashlee asked the court to make Pete foot the bill for both sides.
And while Ashlee didn’t specify the official break-up date in her papers — Pete says the two called it quits on Feb. 9 … just days after Pete came home from a wife-less trip to Dallas for the Super Bowl.
So Ashlee filed for divorce, wants child support and won’t even pay her legal fees. Is this because she resents Pete for costing her a lucrative music career? Someone should tell her it wouldn’t have worked out anyway. By laughing in her face.
