Shocked! Just “speed read” 3 months worth of US Weekly. It’s all the same crap. I thought they were so happy and blablablabla… It’s not like their careers are going so well. Maybe it’s for publicity. Oh well america needs more young divorced & unemployed single parents.

Doesn’t anyone stay together anymore? and it’s so close to valentine’s day! =(

When are you going to learn celebrities? Why don’t celebrities marry ‘NORMAL’ people? Why can’t they just get with regualr person?The problem with most celebrities is they think their the best thing that ever happenend.Ego thing or what ?

Wow….that is kind of a shock.

Attending red carpet events together right up to the end – just like her sister. Does marriage mean anything in Hollywood?

Unless he cheated on her, this really pisses me off. I’m so sick of celebrities cheapening the commitment of marriage. Yeah, marriage gets tough at times but at least try and work it out! It takes actual effort and time…it doesn’t look like these two put that effort in. I mean two years, that’s pathetic.

Wow ! i didn’t see that one coming

Not surprised at all.
It takes a lot to work on a relationship and apparently these people have different standards.

Not a surprise!

Actually, this not exactly shocking news.

The tacky yellow thunder strike is right on in an oxymoronic way. Like.

LOL Hollywood is so ridiculous! This aint a shock! Only person losing is thier son…poor kid :(

I think it’s Ashlee’s fault, she’s been looking really sickly lately. She may have anorexia or drug addition. That is one messed up family. He seems like a nice normal guy (like Nick Lachey) and he probably can’t take her dysfunctional family anymore.

@ Chelsea: word.

w o w !! Did not see this one coming. Another celebrity divorce..

Geez. A lot of those yellow lightning bolts on the site this week.

it’s an epidemic! But I can’t say I didn’t see this one coming…
