Ashlee Simpson-Wentz has decided to postpone her summer tour around the United States due to her recent marriage and pregancy.
Ashlee’s spokesperson told OK magazine, “After careful consideration, Ashlee Simpson has decided to postpone her summer tour.” “She is committed to giving her fans the best show possible, and will be back better than ever and ready to rock in the future.”
Ashlee’s hubby Pete Wentz has recently caught some flack for lying to MTV when asked about Ashlee’s pregnancy last month. Rumors were flying and at first the couple denied the reports, then later just refused to comment.
Pete apologized to MTV for lying but had this to say, “Every woman, no matter who they are or what they do for a living, has the right to wait at least 3 months before sharing this very personal news,” he wrote. “We wanted to wait until after the first trimester and get a clean bill of health from our doctors before confirming anything, just like any other couple.
“Being a boy I have no idea how to respond to such things and my first instinct was to protect her and the baby.
“It’s insane that you can’t let happy news brew in Hollywood. This wasn’t about press or anything. It was about the health of the baby and trying to find a way to be happy with what should be the most happy time of our lives in the middle of a press blitz. I apologize to anyone who felt misinformed but the truth is, the person and growing baby is who I felt most loyal to protect and defend.”
This couple will have an exciting year and it is great Ashlee is postponing her tour while preparing for their new baby.
