I have never been happier to see a headline about a Hollywood couple fighting! The story goes that this past Saturday, Ashlee Simpson went with her husband, Pete Wentz to celebrate the anniversary of his Chicago bar being open for one year. During the party, Pete was DJing, and Ashlee was drinking. All of this led up to a major fight, which led to both Ashlee and Pete storming out. The story was first run on Perez Hilton’s website. It was then later denied on Ashlee’s Twitter page. So is it true? I certainly hope so.
I have no problem with Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz as a couple. With the exception that I kind of despise Pete Wentz. But I am happy to see that they are a normal couple who fights. Ever since they’ve gotten together, it’s been nothing but puppy-dog eyes and roses and well, I’m just happy to see that they don’t live in some fairy tale land where there’s never any disgruntlement. It makes them seem more human to me. From Contact Music,
“Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is said to have rowed with ”horrible” husband Pete Wentz at a party at his bar in Chicago and insisted he take her home early.
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz called her husband “horrible” during a drunken public argument.
The ‘Outta My Head’ star is said to have rowed with Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz during his DJ set at his Chicago bar Angels and Kings at a party to mark the venue being open for a year on Saturday (15.08.09).
After aiming a series of series of barbed comments at Pete, Ashlee insisted he took her home early.
A source told gossip blogger Perez Hilton: “Pete was in the DJ booth when Ashlee came up completely wasted and yelled at him to leave. They fought, she told him he was horrible in front of a whole group of people and made him leave his own party early. So they make a scene and leave the bar.”
Sources say Ashlee was “beyond drunk” and the pair continued to argue as they left.
When someone tried to take a photo of the couple, Ashlee “chased the guy down the street and made him erase the pictures”.
The couple – who have a 10-month-old son Bronx – were then ushered into a car by their security team and taken home.
Ashlee, 24, has since denied she and 30-year-old Pete rowed at the bar.
Writing on her Twitter page she tells Perez: “Your story is WAY off. my husband is an amazing dj and was dedicating songs to me. We were just havin fun. Our love is amazing. (sic)”
Perez insisted the story was accurate, posting on his own micro blog: “I don’t want to name names and get people fired but several of the people I spoke with work at Angels and Kings. I’m not wrong.”
This is not the first time Ashlee has been caught up in a drunken altercation.
In June, the singer had a public row with Pete’s ex-girlfriend Michelle Trachtenberg during a night out in Los Angeles.
A source said at the time: “Ashlee was staring directly at Michelle and starting hurling insults at her. She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting!”
Ashlee later apologised for her behaviour.”
So, is there some truth to the story? Or is it really just Perez doing whatever he needs to do for a story? Well, as much as I hate to agree with Perez, I do think this story is probably true. And I don’t understand why Ashlee would try to deny it. Maybe she’s just embarrassed about being that drunk? Maybe she thinks it’s wrong to call your husband horrible? Maybe all of those things are true. But hey, who doesn’t have a few too many once in awhile? And I’m sure any married couple would be the first to tell you that sometimes, you say things that you just don’t mean. Either way, denying it only makes Ashlee look lame. And pretending that you have this over-the-top marriage that never sees trouble, is only fooling yourself. Someone should tell Ashlee that you can fight with your husband occasionally and still have a fabulous marriage.
