Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz split up ages ago, but they do have a kid together who they named after a borough of New York and a character from The Jungle Book, which explains why Pete isn’t so happy that Ashlee’s been going wild in recent months, partying hard and even engaging in lesbian flings (ooh la la)! Basically, he’s told her to calm the hell down and start acting more like a mother and less like a carefree 18-year-old with an experimental side.
From Radar Online:
“Ashlee is in the dog house right now with Pete,” a source tells Radar. “He’s concerned that she’s burning the candle at both ends and worried about the effect on Bronx if she continues in this current state.
“Pete’s told Ashlee that enough is enough, and she has to cut back on the partying. He’s even spoken to [her mom] Tina to get her take on the matter and make sure that he’s not overreacting in any way. She reassured him that he isn’t and said she’s been worried about Ashlee too.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Ashlee displayed some “out of control” behavior at a Hollywood hotspot recently.
“She was downing drinks like there was no tomorrow,” according to an eyewitness, who exclusively told Star magazine the star was throwing back cocktails at Pink Taco.
“She asked for a straight shot and added it to her already mixed cocktail,” the source added.
I have to say, if it was Pete Wentz out drinking and making out, no one would raise an eyebrow, but because women are held to some ridiculous standards and are called crazy, wild sluts if they don’t adhere to them, this is a story. It really chaps my hide. Do I think she probably needs to settle it down and pay more attention to her responsibilities? Yes, of course. But do I think that being a mother means you’re nothing but a mother and not still a woman and, you know, a person who might want to let off a little steam and chill the hell out without your kid attached to you 24/7? Duh.
