Pete Wentz Is Grateful For The Charlie Sheen Kerfuffle

“It’s like 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. Going through something like this isn’t easy, but we’re friends, and the most important thing is to put our son first … It’s hard to … maintain your private life. You want to do it, especially when there’s a kid involved. It’s like the one time on earth I’m like, ‘Thank god Charlie Sheen exists.’”
