Just look after the kid well.

I am not surprised!

I am not surprised!


Thank you Shawna, you are an inspiration. I have been saying that for years, it is NOT a feeling, it is a choice. If you know you cannot be married through better or worse, do not get married in the first place.

Whatever! They prolly just want press!
They are both hungry Fame W#0res!
How much u wanna bet in a month they will be back on the covers of magazines “Back Together”
Oh wait!!! Doesn’t SHE have a new folk album coming out?!?
Ahhhh! Makes sence!

so get this!I open the justjared page and theres a bunch of breakups and divorces staring at me from the front page…totally shocked!!!

If this divorce is true,which i believe it’s true…it’s no news for me.They married because she got knocked up,and i doubt they would have been together if she didn’t get knocked up.I saw it coming;when they got engaged,i wrote in a site they wouldn’t last more than two years…
It’s a sign that the next couple to divorce is Nicole Richie and Joel Madden.Both married because she got knocked up twice.These celebrities must remember that marriages after kids or during pregnancies don’t last at all.
Most part of these couples engaged after pregnancies or born kids won’t last…i’m not making this up,it’s a real statistic.

Is anything sacred anymore?

It not just celebrities studies on divorce rate in America say that approximately

• 40% to 50% marriages end up getting divorced! This means that out of every 2 marriages, 1 would break up.

• The number rises to 60% when it comes to second marriages and 73% when it comes to third marriages!!!

• The highest number of divorces occur in men and women aged between 20-25 years!

People inguinal don’t take marriage seriously, get married after only being together for a couple months or don’t want to put in the time to work out the problems. If Ashlee and Pete did try to work thing out after 2 or so years just shows that they got married for the wrong reasons or they really have a lot of problems, my bet is on the first that they only got married because she was pregnant .

lol 90% of hollywood is eather divorcing oder pregnant right now !

no celebrities should get married

WHAT is wrong with Ashlee’s expressions sometimes?? Awkward gal. Anyway, I thougt they were too immature to have a baby together and get married anyway. It’s like LaLa land (Los Angeles) is a place of fairy tale dreams… and people do things on a whim.
I saw this couple around LA and they look like two skinny female midgets!

MEANIEminemooooooooooo @ 02/09/2011 at 4:28 pm

I never saw that one coming…I mean, he IS fugly, gayish and gross but then again, so is she! I thought they were a perfect match…Couple of losers…poor offspring!

Gosh. Them too?
Who from the celebs is able to NOT divorce?

not surprised it’s her who’s doing the divorcing. all the metamorphosis recently, as evidenced by the new persona she’s trying to project w/that ‘edgy’* hair… the condescending body language where she’s kissing Wentz… the studied cheek sucking passed off as smiling… all that points to the fact that she’s done having ‘mommy and daddy’ fun, and she’ll go back to the dating carousel for a while, kid be damned.

*note to simpson: your edgy look is long-smoked, dear. ref. Farrow, Mia, and Seberg, Jean

OMG i didnt see this one coming! :O i loved those two together this is sad :(

LOL. No shock there

Wow that was unexpected!

I’m really trying hard not to be spiteful but its hard I’m sorry about the marriage breaking up because there’s a kid involve.
But honestly Pete Weintz can only take to much of Ashlee’s Lip singing
on his mike before that damn thing goes lethargic forever on Ashlee’s
sucky vocals. if you know what I mean.
Its not to late though if Ashlee should take some serious voice lesson from our wonderful tenors like Tera Patrick or Jenna Jameson. She could save this marriage. But if her real reason for filing divorce is to try some other type of mikes, Honey that ain’t gonna work because nobody wants an amateur near their mikes.

Look on the bright side, at least now they’ll both get laid on Valentine’s Day.

that’s what happens when you get married just because you are pregnant. fail.

cheeseman @ 02/09/2011 at 7:38 pm

ugh who cares

I am CHOCKED !!!!! well well well ! hmmmm :-O !!!

This is sad. They were a cute couple but they did seem to have a few ups and downs. At least one good thing came out of the marriage…their adorable little boy.
