Pete Wentz's Possible Drug Problem Cause His Divorce

Feb 25th, 2011

So just why did Ashlee Simpson file for divorce from Pete Wentz? According to sources, the rocker has quite an out-of-control drug habit. His abuse of prescription drugs teamed up with his wandering eye caused Ashlee to axe the relationship.

Although Ashlee had been pressing Pete to go to rehab for a while - and had even threatened to leave him - insiders say the troubled musician didn't take her demands seriously until it was too late.

"Ashlee realized that Pete had become a functioning addict and that he wasn't making any effort to quit," revealed an insider. He'd been taking the sleeping pill Ambien OxyContin, said the source -- and Ashlee had concerns about Pete's behavior around their son Bronx. "More than once, Ashlee has been awakened in the middle of the night by Pete standing over her in a zombie-like stupor mumbling incoherently," the insider said. "And when she told him about these frightening episodes the next morning, he couldn't remember what happened. Pete's behavior was getting worse as time went on- and he wouldn't admit to a problem."
