Pete Wentz is opening up about his divorce from Ashlee Simpson, though
he only has nice things to say about the mother of his two-year-old son.

 

"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," Wentz tells Ryan
Seacrest in a radio interview. "I think that one of the things, the
hardest thing, when you're a public profile [is] to maintain your
private life, and you wanna do it especially when there's a kid
involved." Wentz is able to look on the bright side when it comes to
media attention, though: "It's like the one time on Earth I'm like,
'Thank God Charlie Sheen exists,'" he says.
