Bronx Wentz Looks Just Like Mommy!

Bronx Wentz Looks Just Like Mommy!

Pete Wentz has taken to his blog to address rumors that he and wife Ashlee Simpson are selling tabloids the first pictures of their son Bronx Mowgli, 3 weeks.

In an entry titled, “Ring, ring, it’s the truth calling,” Pete writes, “About baby pics gossip: truth is like every celeb couple we were offered mounds and mounds of money by mags from here to Guam to pimp out the baby. We just don’t want to go down that road with him.”

“We are not placing judgment on those that do as they often use the money in a very charitable way. However, we have made the decision to not sell Bronx’s baby pictures right now. We understand that like other celebrities have said, ‘There is a bounty on our heads’ for these pictures. There is a danger when there are cameras being held over walls and into our backyard. We are followed day and night and that was fine when it was us but we are going to do our best to shelter Bronx from that as much as possible. It’s scary to be followed by 10 cars to your home. We understand the curiosity, just not the viciousness that comes along with it when it becomes so insatiable. We know there will be a time when we’ll share him with everyone because that insatiable curiousity [sic] becomes unsafe or simply because we’re proud parents who want to show him off! We know our fans support and care about us and want to know about our family and we’ve always been straight up and open with those who care about us most, so at some time, when it makes sense, Bronx will be out in the world.

“In the meantime, we’d like to say thank you to those who have allowed us relative privacy in letting us just be a family for now – and to enjoy all the happiness he’s brought us.”

“ps Trust me he’s cute. He looks like his mommy.”

    That is so great of them. I knew they weren’t going to see pictures of Bronx. Ashlee and Pete are going to be really great parents.

  • fara

    i have a solution that all celebs should use.
    make youre own site. if you that have one already.

    and put pics up there. so in that case. for everyone who comes to have a look on youre site, you will get money. isnt that correct?
    and that money you can donate to charity.

    instead of letting the media fight over the pics. they think in youre hands, by controlling them.

    by the way. i dont by that they come after us anyhow for pics. i mean, you will keep that problem.

    for example brangelinas twins. no one has seen their faces on a pic since the pics in the mags. so you dont think that paparazzi are still after those second pics? cause with a baby who is changing everyday. those pics after a month or 2, 3 stay interesting.

    especially if you hide youre kids like that. so in a way i think that celebs bring this media hype on themselfs.

  • Halo

    Here’s the thing Pete…even if you did “pimp” out the baby by selling the baby pictures, I still wouldn’t buy the magazine. Ashlee and yourself are pretty boring – not my favorite celebs. By the time the baby is 5, you guys are going to break up after you realized you married because Ashlee was pregnant (this is the truth people) and you’re going to want to see other people.

    Plus, the name of your son is what we say…”trying too hard”. You guys are not even from the Bronx (at least Brooklyn Beckham was concieved there) and the Jungle book is just a contrived way of saying Mowgli was an inspiration for two modern adults to name their son. “The Jungle book was so great we wanted to name him Bronx Mowgli” lol.

    Just admit the fact that you wanted to be in the “pool” of celebrities who name kids weird names just for the hell of it.

  • Halo

    Fara, you’re proposition wouldn’t work because if they put the pics on their site…there will be no need to pay them because people can just copy and paste the pictures to put them on magazines. What you put on the internet is at your own discretion. People who are more talented than Ashlee Simpson don’t get paid for putting their videos on Youtube. It is what it is…

    Gwen and Gavin (Rossdale) put the pictures of their newborn son Zuma on their site. It was easier for them to do that than a photoshoot for People magazine or something like that. I doubt they got paid for it.

    just seen them on richest hollywood couples… congrats on the baby!

    ——–

    but isnt it true that you get paid for every tick on youre site.

    especially if you got a lot of visitors? maybe i am wrong, but i really thought that was the case. cause websites like USmag do get paid for every visitor otherwise it wouldnt be interesting for them to start a site, when they can sell mags for money.

    by the way. cant you secure youre site, so that people cant take youre pics. i mean for example the pics that mags like W put on of their celebs. arent they protected so that no one can easily copie them and put them on their site.

    i really think that there is a solution for such a thing. i mean we live in 2008 not 1945

  • Halo

    You can secure your site but it won’t stop people who are great with the internet to steal pictures. Even if they found a way for people to not copy and paste, someone will end up taking a camera to take a picture of the photo on the site. People do it all the time. There are videos on Youtube that people post of taping something off the internet or television i.e. a music video or a film. Weird…but it does happen.

    I don’t know what it takes to get paid for having a website though. I know Perez Hilton and Just Jared get paid somehow but that’s because they’re completely devoted to their blogs which indeed are popular. Celebs update their sites sporadically. Celebs on Myspace usually have over 10,000 friends but they’re not getting paid. I don’t think Tom has the money to pay every celeb who registers for Myspace.

    Fara, u are correct… why do people hate so much…I wonder where all the hate comes from…

  • Amy

    Yeah I don’t believe that for a second. Taking everything into account – the economy, how every gossip mag is cutting staff, how selling baby pics is all of a sudden “bad” and how these 2 aren’t exactly A-list, I’m thinking they weren’t going to get the $$ they wanted to then they decided to take the “high road.”

    I could care less about seeing this baby – I just can’t take anything these two say seriously after they actually went and named their child Bronx.

  • Natchy

    Even selling the pictures… Would ANYONE BUY IT?!

    I don’t think so!
    At least they’re avoiding the humiliation! :D

  • Halo

    Amy – you are so damn right. It’s pretty obvious that they weren’t getting a shitload of money for the baby pics of Bronx and the “buyer” outed them lol. I don’t believe his rant because he went into saying he won’t sell any pictures for the fact of photogs invading his backyard but then he says they will share him with the world eventually as if “it’s a planned presentation”. I mean you can’t plan a paparazzi shot unless you are desperate lol.

    Contradiction right there. Either way…people know the truth.

  • foxy brown

    Why does everyone try to insinuate Brad and Angelina into their conversations ? Possibly so they can get attention. What Brad and Angelina did with the money for the baby pictures was put to good use–they donated it to charity. Money that was very much needed. There was so much money that they are still donating to worthy causes. Why not sell pictures if you are using the proceeds to save lives and/or make life better for others.

  • loveSIMPSONSISTERS

    Why all the hating? Ashlee and Pete have made the desicion to not sell the pictures of their baby to the press. Y`all should respect that. I wish Ashlee, Pete and little baby Bronx everything well and happiness in the future.

  • Jess

    There’s nothing wrong with them not wanting to sell the photos to the media. I agree with everything he said. Let them be a family. I honestly didn’t think that was so much to ask.

  • Lily

    Wow, my respect for them just went up hundreds of levels.

  • marina

    good for the baby that he looks like his mom, the father… not so much

  • black

    Yeah sure…………..keep telling yourself Pete.

  • sillyme

    Yeah, I agree with those who said the celeb should just post the picture on their own site. Wentz said they weren’t selling pictures of the baby “right now,” which kind of sounds like he’s willing to do it later. Why does everyone have to sell them? Just post the dang thing yourselves, and that way you don’t have to worry about photographers trying to get that “first photo.”

  • givemeabreak!

    “weren’t selling pics. of the baby “right now”… not too hard to de-code this load of rubbish- they weren’t getting the amnt. of $$$$ they were asking for- hence the “right now” comment, which implies that if the right amnt. was thrown their way- they would jump on it.

    Selfish and greedy to the core! Why ppl. look up to/admire these narcisistic, no talent, good for nothing ego-maniacs is beyond my comprehension. As if anyone out here has even one iota of interest in seeing their horribly-named offspring! Gimme a break!

  • http://... fob lover

    I think they are going to be very very great parents and I really understand that they don’t sell the pictures jet…
    hey! the boy is just 3 weeks old !!
    when it’s time we all will see the little bronx…

  • Spicylily THAILAND

    Why did they talk about their baby’s picture like they’re A- listers ?
    They”re surely not and never will be……….
    They’re not a big deal, no no……….

    How many people will care to see their baby anyway ?
    Of course, most babies are cute especially in mommies and daddies’s eyes.

    I think some celebs may think why BRAD and ANGIE’s baby photos
    are worth so much more than their babies’.
    Jealousy, I guess.

    Brad and Angie use the money for charities to help less fortunate people and they’re absolutely right.

    I’m glad Brad and Angie don’t make their own blog and post their baby pics for everyone to look, copy and then make money and get away.
    Sorry, they are their own babies not public babies.

  • CR30.01

    Wise and commendable.

  • sas

    the first is always supposed to look like the father! i dunno what he’s talking about, but okay,

    i’m just curious to know HOW it looks like mommy, when everything about her is unnatural! (nose, chin, hair color, etc.)

  • a realist

    I am not buying Pete’s BS. He and Ashlee did not get the offer they wanted, and are embarrassed about how little money was offered them. So they come out with this lying BS.

    We know damn well if they were offered a substantial amount of money for the first photos of their baby, they would jump at it.

  • MovieED

    Not everyone sells out there baby to the media. Anyway, the first they that popped in my head after I heards this: “Bronx Wentz Looks Just Like Mommy! “—–Does he have her old nose?

  • ew

    poor kid

  • Kate

    Using Brad’s words about the “bounty” is laughable

    PUHLEASE, they’re trying to make it seem like they got “mounds and mounds of money” offered but I’m sure it wasn’t even 1/100th of the sum the Jolie-Pitts got paid.

    Pete and Ashley who?

  • nuckingfats

    Kate: “Using Brad’s words about the “bounty” is laughable”….. exactly my thoughts when I read Pete’s blog. I thought about Brad’s interview with CNN. That was really a copycat statement … too bad there’s really no bounty on Bronx’s pictures. I never understood the popularity of this pair.

  • maja

    Does he mean that baby looks like mommy before her nose job, she had a big ugly bazooka of a nose, i hope baby doesn’t have that nose!!!!!!!!

  • silver surfer

    i dont believe this shit
    i honestly think they werent offered anything since i doubt they would sell much
    fuck this lil bitch, he looks like a vagina
    go pop some pills bitch

  • Valerie

    i read somewhere else that nobody want’s to pay for the pictures because pete and ashlee” dont sell”, when they’re on the cover of a magazine the magazine doesn’t sell very well!

    And in any case that a mag offered them money for the pictures, i dont think they offered them mounds of money like pete said! They probably offered them a little amount of money and that’s why they aren’t selling thr pics!

  • Amy

    Valerie I’ve heard that too – that’s why the tabloids leave them alone, they just don’t sell!

  • Betina

    the baby looks just like mom? poor kid.
    starting by his name.. MOWGLI? WTF?

  • kara

    ahahaha “He looks like his mommy” >>> well, before or after surgery? LOL

  • noonewantedthepicturesanyways

    These two are always a day late and a dollar short. She probably got knocked up thinking that they were going to get baby picture money like everyone else. Losers. She is such a follower and shame on the both of them for naming that baby Bronx Mowgli, I mean come on…. No one cares what their baby looks like.

  • Yuck

    It’s all BS. They weren’t getting offered the right amount of money so instead of being humiliated, they make up so crappy story and bring the Jolie0Pitts into it.

    If they go offered the right amount of money, they would so sell their baby’s pics but no one is interested. Remember how they pimp themselves out for everything else? wedding, honeymoon, ASSley’s pregnancy, etc.

  • yoyo

    If baby Bronx looks just like mommy he’s gonna have to get a nose job too!!! HOLY SHITE!

    > thats funny cause you contradict what you say.

    its ok for brangelina to sell the pics to a magazine cause they are giving to charity, but on their sites would be like making their babies public? you see how that sounds?

    isnt putting the pics in a mag also public? hahaha youre funny.

    by the way. cant a paparazzi get even better pics if he gets the mag and scans the pics? even better then taking a pic on a screen.

    so you have no point.

    and i know they somehow can secure the internet better so that people cant copie the pics and people shouldnt forget one thing?

    if the pics are on a website for free to see.
    why bother paying someone who copied the pics.

    i still believe its a good point and celebs should consider this.

    and by the way. the 14 million dollar that brangelina gained from those pics and that they will give to charity. they can give that money even without selling any pics. and again they can earn from their site.

    if you have millions of people looking on youre site i know that you will somehow get something back for it.

    for example they can have sponsors on their sites. those can pay to get their names on their while the pics are being shown.

  • whatever, yo

    Maybe they didn’t get any really good offers??

    They will probably end doing what Gwen Stefani did and post the photos on her website.

    I hope that baby doesn’t get either one of their chins, lol….

    But I’m sure the baby is adorable, all babies are.

  • http://glambabybumps.blogspot.com Glambabybumps

    Very true, covers of these two do not sell!

  • IN THE KNOW

    DON’T BUY THE BULL PEOPLE. They had a photographer take pictures over a week ago. Ashlee’s dad has been shopping them to THREE WEEKLY MAGAZINES only. Weeklies pay big bucks; monthlies do not. It is KNOWN that Pete & Ashlee’s wedding cover (People magazine) did not sell squat. Nobody wants to pay the $$ Joe Simpson is asking. Plus, the photo shoot that was taken apparently looks low-end and unprofessional. I stand by this – it is from two reliable sources in the industry.

  • Sheely

    Hahahaha if the baby looks like Ashlee then it has that nasty big nose and horrible chin before she went under the knife….GROSS

  • simone

    the baby looks like ashlee before surgery or after?

  • Shut Up Moron

    I can’t believe this douche is likening himself to Brad Pitt…i’m just stunned, how this low tiered group of z-listers by by virtue of just having reproductive organs thinks they can liken themselves to one of the biggest movie stars on the planet..and akin their situation to his. If anything, hearing Wentz describe his purported ‘trouble,’ makes me astounded at what Pitt and his family go thru..let me put it to Wentz like this…if it’s this bad for you (keep in mind, I don’t know even know you or what you do – I just know you had a baby with Jessica Simpson’s sister..lolol ), imagine what it MUST be like for Pitt.

    Sheryl Crowe, Gwyneth Paltrow, etc. have all sold their pics, the former gave to charity, the latter did not. I don’t judge any of them – I don’t really care.

    BOTTOMLINE: as a public figure (as unfortunately the Simpsons and whoever they happen to be with are, laughably) your children will be public too. The public will get to know their names – as you’ve released that to the press. Their pictures will be taken as along as YOU remain in the public eye. You can take this insatiable need for irrelevant celebrity fawning that the tabloids have created and do something good with it or you don’t have to do anything. You can choose to release a pictorial yourself and not let tabloids and tabloid weeklies make millions off of you by making millions off them and doing good with it, or you can put it in a trust for your kid…or NOT.

    The main thing you do NOT have to do, is write an essay JUSTIFYING what you’re doing either way, and then snidely judging other people in the entertainment industry who have. Just do it, or not. But shut up about it. but whatever you do, lose the delusion that we care.

    I’m here only because of your snarky ‘pimp the baby out,’ comment. News bulletin idiot: the day you post your kid on a blog, or in a magazine pictorial, or take him with you to the zoo – his image becomes public.

    If you really don’t want to pimp him out. Quit being a celebrity and go away.

    If only we could be so lucky.

  • felicia

    looks just like his mom…so he has her original nose? uh, nasty?
