Insiders are spreading the word that Ashlee Simpson’s father, Joe Simpson, is a reason behind her split with husband Pete Wentz.
“Just like when Jessica split from Nick, Joe is doing nothing to encourage Ashlee to give the marriage another try, if only for the sake of her son,” a pal told the PopEater website.
“Joe likes being the only man in his daughters’ lives and is happy that Ashlee has moved back into his home [in Encino, Calif.], just like Jessica did after she announced she was leaving Nick Lachey.
“Joe got rid of Nick, and now he is saying goodbye to Pete.
“Let’s hope Ashlee finds more happiness than Jessica did when she finds herself officially single again.”
