Ashlee Simpson has split from her husband of two and a half years and has filed for divorce.
The singer, 26, married former Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, 31, in May 2008 and have two-year-old son Bronx Mowgli together.
The blonde cited 'irreconcilable differences' in the documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday.
TMZ have reported that Ashlee is seeking joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their toddler. She has requested that Pete be granted visitation rights.
She is also asking for spousal and child support. The couple reportedly did not sign a prenuptial agreement.
In a statement to Mail Online the couple said: 'After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce'.
'We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority.
'We ask that everyone honour our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives.'
The court papers were signed on Monday by Simpson-Wentz who took her husband's last name but she is now seeking to go back to her maiden name.
True to their statement the couple were pictured holding hands and seemed to be on great terms over the weekend as they spent time together as a family with Bronx.
The worst things is that people look up to these celebrities in a lot of ways. I think they should just ban them from getting married because it's not going to last anyway. I'm just irritated by it all. The institution of marriage has become a JOKE. I don't even know why anyone is bothering with preventing gays from getting married. What sanctity are they trying to preserve when the heterosexuals have made a mockery of it. Maybe the gays would be better at it. Just saying
