Not to kick Ash while she’s down, but it’s gotta be a bummer joining the Young Divorcees Club. Luckily she’s in good company! Here are 11 other stars who got married young and found themselves in divorce court before their 27th birthday.
12 Starlets Married And Divorced By 26
And they said it wouldn’t last … and it didn’t. Yesterday, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz filed for divorce from her husband Pete Wentz, of the band Fall Out Boy. She’s requesting joint custody of their young son, Bronx Mowgli. Ashlee was just 23 when they got married in May 2008; they announced she was pregnant shortly thereafter. Though they had been dating off and on for a couple of years, it was clearly a shotgun wedding and some have wondered if they should have waited a bit before rushing into marriage. Still, they seemed pretty happy to us, but given the rather sudden divorce filing — rather than just an initial separation — we’ve got to wonder if something major caused Ashlee, now 26, to call the whole thing off.
