"After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce," Ashlee and Pete said through a spokesperson. "We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our number one priority. We ask that everyone honor our privacy as we navigate this next phase of our lives."
The couple have been together since the fall of 2006 and were spotted together in public last week looking happy and in love.
