Ashlee Simpson Wentz’s divorce filing came as a surprise to the public, but sources close to Pete say he felt he “couldn’t trust” his wife and their split was a long time coming.
Former Fall Out Boy singer Pete Wentz reportedly became suspicious of his wife’s partying ways recently and didn’t feel he could trust her.
Ashlee filed for divorce from the rocker earlier this month, ending her two-year marriage.
A friend of Pete’s said, “They have been talking about splitting up forever. Ashlee has been out late partying for the past few months… he felt he couldn’t trust her.”
Ashlee, 26, would reportedly “lose track of time” and come home in the wee hours in the morning. She is said to be hanging out with a group of pro skateboarders.
The source also revealed, “He started getting burnt out. He would constantly check in on Ashlee and he’d have his friends call the house and her cell to make sure she said she was where she said she was going to be.”
Ashlee is currently staying at her sister Jessica Simpson’s home with her and Pete’s two-year-old son Bronx Mowgli.
Pete is said to be devastated by the end of the marriage. The source adds, “Pete has been crying a lot to her about this. He is crushed, and does not want it to be over.”
