A lot of people are terribly pleased that Charlie Sheen is spiraling like a pig hurtling down a greased slide: radio DJs, parents who want to scare their kids straight, Emilio Estevez (Just kidding, E! Ducks fly together!). But only Pete Wentz is glad Charlie Sheen distracted people from his divorce from Ashlee Simpson. “I think that one of the things, the hardest thing, is that when you’re a public profile it’s hard to maintain your private life, and you wanna do it especially when there’s a kid involved,” Wentz said. “It’s like the one time on earth I’m like, ‘Thank God, Charlie Sheen exists.’” You and America both, brother!
While he might throw out a light dis towards the Tiger Blood King himself, Pete has nothing but love for his soon to be ex-wife. “Ashlee’s been my best friend for five years; she’s the mother of my child. I have nothing but love and respect for her and going through something like this isn’t easy, but we’re friends and the most important thing is to put our son first,” Wentz explained, despite the fact that allegedly Ashlee is dating musician Craig Owens before the ink is dry on her request for full-custody. That doesn’t make you want to just Twitter something outrageous by any chance, does it Pete? You better hope Charlie pulls some epic move and gets elected of governor of California soon, or else eventually everyone’s eyes are going to drift back to your undoubtedly messy custody battle….
