It was only February when Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz announced their divorce after two and a half years of marriage. Pete, however, wouldn’t let go. He kept wearing his wedding ring even after the break-up and seemed to be still trying to win Ashlee back even though she’s dating his friend, Craig Owens.
It seemed pathetic at first but, hey, all that groveling might have worked. X17 says the two were seen hand in hand flirting with each other during a Starbucks run with their kid. An eyewitness tells X17, “Ashlee and Pete definitely seem back on — from their body language to the smile on their faces, it certainly looks like they’re headed toward reconciliation.”
This source isn’t far off from sounding like an internet commenter who cries “fake” and claims “I can see the pixels.” Just because a girl smiles and looks happy doesn’t mean she is. Hell, I can make a girl smile and flirt with me. Just give me a knife.
