Times really are changing in Hollywood. But it’s one thing when Tom Cruise and Mel Gibson try to make ammends with those they scorned.

It’s another thing when Ashlee Simpson and Braxton Olita break up. Yes, you read that correctly.

Simpson had been saving her body for Olita, but at least she didn’t waste time giving it to someone else. Jessica’s younger sister turned heads on September 2 at the NYC bar, Don Hill’s, when she snuggled and kissed a cute guy in the VIP section.

It wasn’t Braxton, however. This was Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy. Indeed, Simpson’s rep then told Us Weekly that Simpson and Braxton “broke up about a week ago. They have decided to take a break.”

Did Ashlee need time apart to focus on plastic surgey? Did Olita finally realize he’d be stuck staring at Jessica Simpson pictures, never getting inside the pants of the real thing, as long as he dated her sister?

We might never know, but we do know a source close to Simpson that said:”Ashlee has been telling everyone that she’s over Braxton,” and adds that Wentz recently dumped girlfriend Michelle Trachtenberg in order to be with Ashlee.

Good. We hadn’t heard of that Trachtenberg person anyway.

For his part, Joe Simpson may be relieved: An insider says when Simpson told him she wanted to move in with Olita earlier this year, “he thought it was totally wrong, immoral and a bad decision. It caused a major rift between her and Joe.”

At Don Hills’ that night where, Ashlee was clearly enjoying her new company. Reports state she was seen openly straddling the Fall Out Boy bassist … before her diet took over.

At one point, Ashlee had to excuse herself to vomit. Don’t say you weren’t warned, Pete.
