Ashlee Simpson & Vincent Piazza Have Parted Ways
Recently, New York Post’s Page Six reported that after a year and a half of dating, Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza have called it quits. “Vincent has been working a lot, so he hasn’t been able to spend as much time with Ashlee, which has caused some problems,” a source revealed. “It was a mutual agreement to split, but things have been bumpy for a little while, so perhaps they might reconcile” the source added. The 28-year-old singer and Boardwalk Empire actor first began dating in 2011, shortly after Simpson split from her husband of three years.
For the uninitiated, in February 2008, Simpson began wearing a diamond ring. She later explained that it was a promise ring from Wentz. In April 2008, Simpson and Wentz confirmed their engagement and were married at Simpson’s parents’ residence in Encino, California, where her father officiated the ceremony. Two weeks later, Simpson confirmed her pregnancy. Her surname changed from Simpson to Wentz and she was briefly known professionally as Ashlee Simpson-Wentz.
