After less than the three years together, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz are headed for divorce. In documents filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday, Simpson is citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split, according to TMZ.

Wentz and Simpson have one child together (two-year-old son Bronx Mowgli) and Simpson is seeking joint legal custody and primary physical custody of their child.

Simpson and Wentz originally met in 2006 and were married two years later on May 17 in Encino, California, at Simpson's parents' home. Her father, Joe Simpson, officiated the ceremony.

With his band Fall Out Boy on temporary "break," Wentz has been working on music with his new band Black Cards. Simpson, meanwhile, has been working on her first album since 2008's Bittersweet World.
