Ashlee Simpson is drunk dialing Pete Wentz and begging him to come back

Ashlee, Pete and their son Bronx Mowgli, two and a half, on 6/10/11

I had only a passing interest in the Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz breakup earlier this year, but since it’s my job to pay attention to these relatively nobodies, I’ve gleaned that Ashlee may have cheated on Pete. It’s hard to verify, but it seems like that’s what went down. Maybe his people were leaking stories about her, though, because there were cheating rumors about him too, and one story in the Enquirer claimed he was addicted to prescription painkillers. Whatever happened, Ashlee has been spotted out with several other potential hookups since their split and so has Pete. They’ve also been photographed together, suggesting they’re still friendly or at least want to give the impression that they are.

This latest story makes me think that Pete probably wants Ashlee to look like a drunken sad sap who wants him back though. US Weekly claims she’s been drunk-dialing him and begging him to come back to her. I would think it would be the other way around, but who knows. The last we heard of Ashlee she was dating Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza, but they could be over now even though US says they’re still together. I did find paparazzi photos of them together on July 10th, those are below. Here’s US’ story:

A source says [Ashlee Simpson], 26, recently placed an inebriated call to Pete Wentz, whom she’s divorcing. “Ashlee was telling Pete how much she misses him and wants him back,” says a pal of the bassist, 32. A rep for Simpson denies the call. And though the singer is dating Boardwalk Empire’s Vincent Piazza, the source says she’s so desperate to win Wentz back, she even asked his sis for help – with no luck. Says the pal, “He will never go back to her. He’s in a good place.”

[From US Weekly, print edition, September 5, 2011]

This is Pete trying to save face by acting like Ashlee wants him back. She probably did drunk dial him, we’ve heard she loves her cocktails. The extent of her wanting him back is probably a few mumbled regrets that she doesn’t even remember, though.

Ashlee and Vincent in NY on 7/10/11:


Pete and a “female friend” (update: it’s his sister, sorry! The photo agency didn’t identify her) in LA on 7/11/11.

Here’s Ashlee at an event on 6/21. Her styling is awful! What was she thinking?

    I guess she thinks if she styles herself like Pete, he’ll want her back……

  2. Iggles says:

    I can’t stand her! I think she did Pete dirty and is a famewhore. (How else do you describe that ridiculous name for their son??)

  3. Anon says:

    Jessica was always the “hot” sister, but I bet she wishes she had Ashlee’s figure.

  4. brin says:

    Looks like she drunk styled herself.

  5. Missy says:

    With that haircut, she kind of looks like Pete Wentz, no?

  6. Toot says:

    That’s Pete’s sister he’s walking with.

  7. Celebitchy says:

    Thanks Toot can you send a link for that?

  8. Pyewacket says:

    I would be drunk dialing anyone BUT Pete Wentz. His emo-creep vibe is simply gross.

  9. Relli says:

    Oh Michelle Trachenburg, you should not wear leggings in the presence of man who looks better in them than you do.

  10. Judy says:

    Her haircut is adorable…I’d like to have her haircut. Not everyone has to have generic “Housewives’ Hair,” which I find repulsive.

  11. Firecracker says:

    Brin, lol!

  12. serena says:

    I think it’s actually the other way around. Pete is so pitiful.

  13. Hautie says:

    I like Ashlee’s hair short and blonde.

    But didn’t Jessica drunk dial Nick for months after she kicked him to the curb.

    So maybe it is time to do a little therapy and get those Daddy issue’s addressed.

    Both those girls seem to lack maturity, when it comes to dealing with men.

  14. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    In the header pic she resembles SamRo. Perhaps she can drunk dial LiLo. They’re both always drunk, so Lindsay probably wouldn’t know the difference if they were to meet up for a drunk trist.

  15. ladybert62 says:

    I like her haircut and that second to last picture of her is very nice. The last picture shows the entire outfit which is a train wreck.

  16. Rhiley says:

    Didn’t Ashlee Simpson drunkingly attack Emma Stone and tell her to stay away from her man when A and P were married. I think Emma and Pete knocked boots for a while, but surely she wasn’t pining after him. I think Ashlee is kind of a drunk, but a young drunk, so she has time to clean up her act and get it together.

  17. Sara says:

    I think she is adorable but outfit is very late 90’s, not a good time in fashion.

  18. John Wayne Lives says:

    she is Miss Trystoohard

  19. vanessa says:

    I’m sure she’s enjoying that Italian package…why on earth would she go back to Pete Wentz?

  20. Rhiley says:

    Actually I think it was Michelle Trackenberg not Emma Stone who Ashlee Simpson attacked. It was definately one of the two.

  21. Truthful says:

    Ashley is a train wreck.

    do we really beleive that her itlaian beau is just dating her?? no.

    and he probably doesn’t want anything too serious.

    mo money more problems.

  22. marvin says:

    He’s a short stump with a huge head and she’s a flake. Is her nose growing back?

  23. mary simon says:

    what’s with that yellow hair helmet? pretty girl, stupid hair.

  24. says:

    Does she own those stupid little hats in every color?!

  25. corey says:

    Good lord she’s ugly…..and not that talented.Luckily for her, big sister’s rack was big enough to carry both of their careers. ummm say something nice….their kids are really cute. curly blond hair smiles 🙂

  26. eldys says:

    Remember when these hussies were supposed to be “good christian” girls.

  27. gaby says:

    that hair style makes it look like she has the huge side-burns of a man from the 70’s

  28. Kim says:

    Both untalented and famous for????? Seems like a match to me.

  29. Becky says:

    I’m not usually a fan of plastic surgery but she got a great nose job.

    Nevertheless, she definitely needs a new look. I really dislike the platinum blonde hair. Why do so many of these girls go for platinum blonde? It looks good on very few people.

  30. house tracks says:

    Awfull haircut lol. Still… she should not do stuff like that in drunk mode 🙂 what a shame!

  31. ManicPixieDreamGirl says:

    Faux hipster alert!

  32. Dani says:

    She shouldn’t have separated from him in the first place.

    I wish she would let her hair grow longer. I prefer her with longer hair.

  33. Nah, nah & nah... says:

    Ok. I gotta question. How many people have heard that Papa Joe and the moms went back and forth on the brink of divorce for years? Nobody can ever clarify the nature of the preacher and the preacher’s wife’s relationship for me. Not trying to start any new scandal or rumors regardjing Rev. Creepy Dad, but I just think it might go a long way in shedding light on why both of the girls seem kinda clueless when it comes to the whole love and marriage thing is all. What’s up with the parentals here is what I wanna know?

  34. bugsy says:

    Wow. A lot of people hate her, apparently. Is it ok if I ask why?

    I liked them together. They matched, imo. But I think it’s totally possible they could have cheated on each other. I don’t know about her, but he was photographed grinding other chicks, which is never a good sign in a marriage. Their boy is cute. I always feel really badly for children in a divorce.

  35. original kate says:

    her haircut looks like a comb-over.

  36. Tara says:

    I’m with bugsy. Never really understood the hate and thought the were a pretty even match.
