Ashlee Simpson filed divorce papers to end her marriage to Pete Wentz this week in a move that caught even cynical gossip readers by surprise.

The split is being called amicable, but it was her call, sources say, and due in large part to a series of arguments over Pete Wentz’s music career.

His commitment to touring with his band had been a sticking point between the two for some time now and finally led to Ashley filing for divorce.

The 26-year-old former singer was “fed up” with her husband being away from home for extended periods of time and wanted him to focus on being a dad.

“Ashlee and Pete would argue constantly about him touring,” a source told Radar. “Since she gave birth to Bronx she hated him being away from home."

"She wanted him to stop the band life and work more on producing music, so he could be around to concentrate more on being a husband and father."

“She hated him being away and said she felt like a single mother."

Don't expect a bitter fallout between Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz, who filed for divorce Tuesday. But sources also say it was not entirely mutual.

"It's very amicable. They're on very friendly terms and speaking – it's fine," a source close to the couple tells People. "They've just grown apart."

"They've been growing apart for quite some time."

Maybe so, but Wentz is getting divorced against his will, sources close to him tell TMZ, adding that he absolutely did not want to end the marriage.

Wentz tried talking Ashlee out of filing divorce papers, to no avail. She wanted out of the marriage, possibly due to the rocker's "erratic behavior."

Still, they're putting on a civil, united front for now.

Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Pete Wentz.

Documents were filed in L.A. County Superior Court, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce. The couple married back in May 2008.

It's unclear what specifically led to the split. Ashlee wants joint legal custody and primary physical custody of the couple's son, two-year-old Bronx Mowgli.

HAPPIER TIMES: At some point, things apparently went south.

Simpson is repped by well-known divorce lawyer Laura Wasser and is also asking for spousal and child support. Wentz will be represented by Stacy Phillips.

There is no prenuptial agreement in play, according to reports.

The sad news comes shortly after Jessica Simpson's engagement to Eric Johnson. Ash's sister is also divorced, of course, having been married to Nick Lachey.

Here's hoping it's for the best, and that as difficult as this decision must have been, Ashlee, Pete and Bronx can move on with their lives amicably.

Pete Wentz is apparently out to remake his image.

No more eyeliner, and now no more man bangs.

The Fall Out Boy rocker took to his Twitter page to show off a new buzz cut, writing “jay-z had the death of autotune. this is the death of the emo swoosh.”

We're guessing that was the name of his previous hairstyle. Regardless, without the signature locks in his eye, you almost wouldn't recognize Pete Wetnz ...

Pete Wentz is rocking short hair now!

What's next, button-downs and khakis? As long as he doesn't ditch his wife (Melrose Place star Ashlee Simpson) and baby Bronx, we're all good with it.

As long as he continues to update us via Tweets, of course.

Perez Hilton has gone and pissed off another star. Or at least Ashlee Simpson.

The celebrity gossip blogger reported that Ashlee and husband Pete Wentz got into a fight at the one-year anniversary of his Chicago bar, Angels and Kings.

Hilton quoted eyewitnesses who said a boozed-up Ash instigated the spat and told Pete "he was [acting] horrible... and made him leave his own party early."

This ignited a war of words between the Wentzs and Perez Hilton. Via Twitter.

Ash Twit

Making it clear there was no bad blood with her beloved, she went after the gossip queen with a vengeance: "When all you do is make up untrue stories - look in the mirror. Do you even feel human?? Karma is a bitch. Your story is WAY off."

Hilton, who refers to Simpson-Wentz as "Asslee" (in typical clever fashion) fired back with this Tweet to Pete: "Sorry to hear what Ashlee put you through."

With mock compassion, the most hated man in celebrity gossip then suggested rehab facilities in Malibu Ashlee can check into, while defending his story.

"I don't wanna name names and get people fired but several of the people I spoke with work at Angels & Kings. I'm not wrong," Perez Hilton Twittered.

Perez Twit

"WRONG," replied Ashlee. "My husband is an amazing dj and was dedicating songs to me. We were just havin fun. Our love is amazing ... Get ur own life."

No doubt will.i.am was thinking the same thing while feuding with him in July ... before his manager stepped in and Perez got his ass whomped, that is.

Aubrey O'Day, Emmy Rossum, Melrose Place star Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and her husband Pete are among the celebrities starring in the second PSA for the NOH8 Campaign, entitled "I'm Coming Out," to raise awareness about Propostion 8.

As Carrie Prejean rolls over in her grave, these celebs speak out against what they see as an injustice, that not everyone is allowed to marry who they wish.

It's a nicely put-together video. While he does not appear in the NOH8 PSA, we know Brad Pitt would approve of this effort to promote marriage equality ...

Sunday was family day for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz.

The two took son Bronx Mowgli, whom they welcomed last November, to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation's "A Time For Heroes" celebrity carnival.

As Pete helped locals customize T-shirts, the new Melrose Place star stood by his side, making faces and smiling at Bronx, whom she held in her arms.

He sure is a little cutie ...

Ashlee, Pete and Bronx

Rumors that Pete Wentz got Ashlee Simpson pregnant a second time appear unfounded, which is probably for the best. The two have their hands full with one bundle of joy - and made a T-shirt especially for Bronx at the charity event.

Pete - who celebrated his 30th birthday Saturday in Las Vegas - also was on daddy duty at the event, holding Bronx as Ashlee chatted with some fans.

Ashlee began cracking up when a young girl approached her for an autograph and Bronx tried grabbing the girl’s book. Ah, to be a cute young mom.

Ashlee Simpson is pregnant with another baby, Star Magazine reports, adding that its source says the singer is "just a few weeks along" and is "beyond thrilled."

Still, Jessica Simpson's useless sibling is opting to keep the news private "for at least two more months" before sharing it with the celebrity gossip media.

The mag says Ashlee hopes that baby #2 will make her and Pete closer as his grinding with skanks hectic schedule has put a strain on their relationship.

A foolproof plan if ever there were one.

"... She loves Pete and wants to hang on to him. She believes this second baby will really clinch the deal," the celebrity gossip source reportedly writes.

If you believe what you read online, Ashlee Simpson is knocked up and excited about it. But unlike his wife, Pete Wentz is not yet ready to father a second child.

"He absolutely loves Ash and Bronx Mowgli," claims the tabloid when referring to how the Fall Out Boy bass player feels toward Ashlee and their baby boy.

"But he also loves his freedom. He thinks a second kid could change things for the worse. He doesn't want to be tied down and stuck at home all the time."

No official confirmation (or denial) has been made by Team Wentz concerning the report of her new pregnancy, or the couple's supposedly rocky marriage.

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz were longtime lovers before making it official in May 2008. They welcomed the arrival of son Bronx Mowgli in November.

Ashlee Simpson is a proud mama, sharing pics of Bronx on Twitter.

Pete Wentz is a drunk moron, partying with skanks in Las Vegas.

With the useless but harmless "singer" home alone with their newborn son, her rock star husband was photographed getting wild in Sin City with a bunch of scantily clad dancers and a booze-fueled Slip 'n' Slide over the weekend.

Hey, beats diaper changing.

The Fall Out Boy bassist - sans wife of nearly one year - partied hard with about 50 band members, dancers and friends (including Girls Next Door star Holly Madison) following a sold-out show at the Palms Casino Resort on April 5.

"Everybody was going absolutely crazy," an eyewitness said. "People were even drunkenly playing makeshift Slip 'n' Slide with a mat and lubricant."

"And Pete Wentz was in great spirits. He was dancing and singing along to his band's own songs, while grinding up against the dancers. At one point he was even dancing on a pool table with the girls," the partygoer adds.

Earlier in the day, Ashlee Twittered: "I am beyond sad to leave my love ... My heart is breaking as we drive home." And also: "I need my hubs."

He just needs booze and lubricant, apparently.

One of these celebrities drinks his own urine. The other is kind of useless but also harmless, reasonably pretty and seemingly everywhere these days.

They're both in Sydney, Australia, for the MTV Australia Awards, which take place tomorrow night. Pete Wentz (hosting) and Audrina Patridge (handling red carpet responsibilities) met up with another star – the MTV Moonman (see below)!

The Moonman first became famous as the network's unofficial icon when MTV actually played music videos and not just repeats of From G's to Gents and T.I.'s Road To Redemption all day. Anyway, here are smiling Audrina and Pete:

Audrina Patridge was actually looking remarkably normal and pretty in this photo before it was ruined by Ashlee Simpson's husband butting his ass in there. What a jerk.

Okay, that's enough of Pete Wentz. But click to enlarge more Audrina Patridge pictures below - she looked casual and beautiful as she stepped off her plane in Sydney:
