Despite their divorce filing last month and a brewing battle over custody of son Bronx, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz haven’t been keeping their distance.
The two bonded over fast food – In-n-Out burger, natch – and seemed quite happy to be together, according to reports. But don’t jump to conclusions.
It’s unclear whether this portends a lasting reconciliation or just the amicable parting of ways that was rumored to be the case a month or so ago.
Is there any hope of reconciliation for Pete and Ashlee?
Last week, Simpson turned heads when she was seen in L.A. with a new guy, rocker Craig Owens, who affectionately put his arm around her shoulder.
A Simpson source told Us that the singer-actress and Owens, who happens to be a protege of Wentz, are simply “longtime friends.” Makes you think.
The split has not been that contentious and it’s been reported that Pete was not in favor of it to begin with. At least in his eyes, maybe it’s not over.
