According to reports, Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy and Black Cards. Documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court show that Simpson cites "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, and she's asking for joint legal custody and primary physical custody of the couple's son, Bronx. Simpson is also filing for spousal and child support. The pair married in May 2008. 

A statement released on behalf of the couple reads: "After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives."
