Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz‘s divorce statement remains the only thing either star has said about their split, but plenty of people are willing to talk for them. The general gossip consensus seems to be that, while Ashlee wants to move on with her life, Pete is still trying to patch things up. “Pete is in denial that the marriage is over,” a source told Radar. “He seems to think that if he turns on the charm he can sweet talk Ashlee into changing her mind and giving it another go.” The same source claims Ashlee was none too happy about Pete starting a new band, Black Cards, after Fall Out Boy went on hiatus. “That’s not the life Ashlee wants for her and Bronx—waiting at home for ‘daddy’ to come home. They’ve basically hit a stalemate and neither side is willing to budge.”
Whether or not he’s willing to budge, mulitple sites say Pete is certainly willing to cry. “Pete has been crying a lot to her about this,” says Radar‘s tattler, with TMZ claiming Pete was teary-eyed as recent as yesterday. “He is crushed, and does not want it to be over.” Maybe he’s confused that Radar says she’s “happier without him” but would possibly consider taking him back if he’d quit touring? Logic like that would make us cry, too.
