Pete Wentz’s girlfriend miscarried and he wasn’t there for her, says her grandmother

This is a really sad story and I hope it’s not true at all. Or at least if it’s true that Pete Wentz’s girlfriend miscarried, and it could be since Star has quotes supposedly from her grandmother that claim she did, that he was really there for her. Maybe the grandmother hates Pete for being an emo eyeliner-wearing punk and is trash talking him. She could be one of those grumpy old ladies who hates everyone. (They’re kind of fun in small doses. See: Joan Rivers.)

As background, Pete has been dating model Meagan Camper since September of last year. There were stories around Christmastime that Meagan was pregnant, which Pete’s camp denied at the time. Now Star is running this story that Meagan miscarried their baby, with her grandmother telling Starhe abandoned her right off the bat.” Here’s their very brief report on it.

Pete Wentz and girlfriend Meagan Camper put on a united front while out in Hollywood Jan. 21 with his son, Bronx, 3. But privately, the pair were hit hard when Meagan tragically lost their baby around Christmas, her grandmother Sherrilyn Camper exclusively tells Star. Meagan struggled during the pregnancy, with little support from the rocker, 32, according to Sherrilyn. “[He] abandoned her right off the bat… He wasn’t very much help, that’s for sure.”

That’s it, that’s all they have. Maybe those quotes were taken out of context or the grandmother is crazy or something. I’m not a big Pete Wentz apologist, but as Star notes he’s still with Meagan so they seemed to have worked it out if she had to go through that alone. Pete was playing at a music festival in Miami on December 30, and he could have been away for work when Meagan suffered a miscarriage. It’s sad, and her grandmother shouldn’t have blabbed.

Pete and Meagan are shown out on 12-10-11 with his son, Bronx. They look so matchy and cute together! They’re also shown on 11-1-11. Credit: Fame

    he looks like a younger jeremy piven. a mini piv.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Isn’t Piv already mini? So that would make Pete a mini-pocket-piv, yeah? 😉

  2. fabgrrl says:

    Wait, he was supposed to be there for the miscarriage? That’s not something you can schedule.

    Very sad situation.

    • mikamoo says:

      Exactly… it’s not like you know when these things are going to happen… a miscarriage is hard enough to deal with… rumors just add to the saddness

      • Samigirl says:

        Exactly. When I had my last miscarriage, about April last year, it just happened. Nothing you can do about it. I called my husband to let him know I was on the way to the doctor as soon as I saw blood, but what can you do? It’s very sad, and if I were in the public eye, I would be very upset if one of my family members blabbed about this.

    I certainly don’t want to police any woman’s womb, but ladies, contraceptives are your friend.

    • Melissa says:

      @Tiffany27 – agreed! Does anybody plan children anymore? I’m not saying you need to be married, but maybe don’t have a kid with somebody you’ve been dating for less than a hot minute?

      • Naye in VA says:

        and it seems like a literal “hot minute” given the timeline. dating in September miscarriage by Christmas??/

        i dont want to be an ass but if i was a famous guy and some chick got pregnant pretty much immediately, i might distance myself from her a bit

        but theyre still together so everything must be cool

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Right? It’s not like he doesn’t know how babies are made (see: Mowgli). Dating since Sept & mis-carrying by Dec?

      Warp Speed!

    • Kerfuffles says:

      Yeah, I agree. If she was pregnant a month after they started dating, I can see where he might not have been thrilled about it.

      Of course, he could always use a condom if he didn’t trust her in the birth control department. It’s not right for a woman to falsely represent to a guy she’s on birth control, but it’s not like the man can’t use a condom, too.

    Haaa….i love she’s wearing flat shoes in every pic.

  5. Iggles says:

    I don’t dig short guys, but for some reason I’ve always found Pete Wentz hot..

    His gf looks bland. I know Ashlee was a crazy witch, but I think it’s sad they didn’t work out since they have a child together…

  6. Kaye says:

    When I saw the header pic I thought it was another story on Pippa Middleton.

  7. Kimlee says:

    If this story is true than the only one who comes off looking bad is grandma why sell a story months after it happened and why is she even telling the world that her granddaughter had a miscarriage that is very personal matter to be share in some low rent tabloid mag when Meagan herself has never publicly said anything about it.

  8. Jezi says:

    I can’t see him doing anything like that to her. But they worked it out obviously. Grandma needs to MHOB. She looks a bit like Megan Fox. But a natural version. Maybe Megan Fox 2.0.

  9. OlsenTriplet says:

    This girl looks too good for the King of Douchemo.

  10. serena says:

    She really looks like Megan Fox (even her name LOL)

  11. Little Darling says:

    This is sad, for her and for the situation at large. Since she’s stepped on the scene with him she always seemed to bring out the non douche in him, while Ashlee and he always seemed to one up each other.

    However, the grandmother should keep her mouth shut on her granddaughter, that’s my first thought. My second thought is that perhaps on the wake of all of his ex drama he couldn’t emotionally deal with this loss, as he seems to be completely enamored with his son. Additionally, if he was away how could he be there for her.

    Pete Wentz seems like a lot of annoying things, but I’ve always thought he was a devoted boyfriend/husband…the kind to stick by his woman through thick and thin and to support/defend her – as evidenced with Ashlee, so I don’t want to believe that he would just abandon this woman who stepped into his life and made him smile again after Ashlee paraded around town looking like a goon eyed stalker with that new guy…

    Still, the loss of any child is heartbreaking, at any stage.

  12. Asli says:

    If she really miscarried then I wish her well. That must have been traumatic. Also, Samigirl, I’m so happy that this pregnancy is going well for you! Congrats 😀

  14. Melinda says:

    How does he not know to use birth control?!

  15. Jacqueline says:

    Since he is a money making celebrity, HE should first and foremost be protecting himself and his own financial interests. Its men that have the responsibility to avoid children and child support. Women do too but these women want a baby as their meal ticket. They will allow them to not wear a condom to get pregnant. Why do celebrity, athletes and rich men, who know there are women out there looking to live off child support, still dont wear condoms? No one is on any pill. I never have been and most of my friends. Abortions are not for everyone. Now 18 years of generous child support is another story.

    He had a kid with Ashlee Simpson. Its not like he doesnt know by now.

    • RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

      Because men really and truly do think with their penises. I cant count how many men I know, married, single, gay or straight who refuse to wear condoms for a few moments of pleasure. Its THAT worth it to them. REALLY. They NEVER bundle up. Look at Ryan Phillipe. And, some men LOVE to spread their seed around.

    • jwoolman says:

      A condom is no guarantee. They can fail. Just like other methods (except for abstinence and sterility). A friend’s wife got pregnant when they were using three separate birth control methods.

  16. iseepinkelefants says:

    She looks like Sasha Grey.

    And when you say “model” you mean an LA “model” right?

    • anonymoose says:

      I don’t know who Sasha Grey is, but when I saw the photo I thought he was back with Ashlee. This one looks gangly like Ashlee, either her, or Lindsay Lohan’s gangly sister.

  17. Newyorking says:

    I had an ectopic pregnancy last year, my husband was in Chicago. I went to the doctor without telling him since I didn’t know it was ectopic, I didn’t even know I was pregnant, when the doctor told me to go to the ER I knew it was serious and called him. He took the first flight back, but nothing he could have done anyway. He reached as they were discharging me at 11pm after giving me a shot of methotrexate. As I say, nothing he could have done anyway, in any case he was the one who started crying while listening to me.

    • domesticdiva says:

      im sorry for your loss i had a miscarriage the day i shipped my husband of to deploy…we were standing there hugging and then i felt sudden pain and as he was boarding his flight blood started running down my legs there was nothing he could do but get on that took us another 7 years to get pregnant again were now 8 months with our baby boy. but i truly believe noone can understand the internal pain of such a loss but someone thats been thru it

  18. Jacqueline says:

    Something is up with LA girls. They all look, dress and act like Megan Fox. Even the one Ryan Phillippe knocked up was a Megan Fox look alike. Its catching on here in Massachusetts as well. All of them can pass for sisters. They must be go-to-people in between girlfriends or something for these celebs.

    This kid was probably her meal ticket. Since I have never heard of her or her modeling work. Most women sadly havent evolved to be independant. They want to be looked after. The girls at my college just wanted to study to marry a lawyer, doctor etc and live off of him. Or they wanted to be his mistress. Gold-digging is Darwinism. A woman with a low IQ will seek or poach a man to provide for her and her offspring. Men should know this by now. Especially those that earn well.

    • AM says:

      Jacqueline – very good comment just look at Benicio Del Toro and the lazy and dumb Kimberly Stewart lol

  19. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Uh, who told granny this was any of her damned business to tell and use as character defamation? I’m soooo sure she did all the scraping herself when they were caught in that storm drain devised by Pennywise–Petey.

    Does his face give me the heebie-jeebies? Yes. Do I wish he would stop dyeing his hair with photocopier toner? Sounds like something I would think. Is she angry at him because he stole her ‘Foxy Feline’ black jeans that she acquired during the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre? Sure, why not? No, he shouldn’t cut his own hair with safety scissors and a recalled Flowbee, but she was way the hell out of line. Imagine, some dame hijacking her granddaughter’s trauma with no intention but to complain about the speed of this evil, evil man’s teletransportation device. Classy woman.

    Who knows about the future? There are a lot of loose lips in that family, so he’d better get smart, get something done about that underbite, stop strumming his frigging bass (ugh!) and stop shopping in the junior miss department.
