Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's divorce is final
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are officially single in the eyes of the law.
According to People, their divorce was finalized by the courts on Nov. 22 after more than three years of marriage.
Simpson and Wentz got hitched in May 2008 and had son Bronx Mowgli six months later. However, Simpson filed for divorce in February 2011 citing the catchall "irreconcilable differences."
The couple said in a statement at the time, "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 number one priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives."
The details of the divorce settlement haven't been revealed, but in the initial filings, Simpson asked for primary custody of their son, while Wentz asked for joint custody.
