Pete Wentz seeks joint custody of son in Ashlee Simpson-Wentz divorce
Pete Wentz is asking for joint custody of his and Ashlee Simpson-Wentz's 2-year-old son Bronx Mowgli, a month after she filed for divorce.
Simpson-Wentz, the 26-year-old sister of fellow pop singer Jessica Simpson, and Wentz, the 31-year-old bassist of the rock band Fall Out Boy, married in 2008. In February, she filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
She had asked for joint legal custody but also for primary physical custody of Mowgli, with visitation rights for her estranged husband.
The two married on May 16, 2008 at Simpson-Wentz's parents' home in Encino, California. Their son was born the following November.
"Dont forget 2 notice-when i look into the lil dudes eyes & smile, the way he loves. i realize @ashsimpsonwentz is a good moma + so much more," Wentz wrote on his Twitter page on February 7, before her divorce filing.
