Ashlee Simpson

Waco TX, United States (2004 – present)

Ashlee Nicole Simpson (born October 3, 1984 in Waco, Texas) is an American pop rock singer-songwriter and actress. Simpson, who is the younger sister of pop singer Jessica Simpson, rose to prominence in mid-2004 through the success of her number-one debut album Autobiography and the accompanying reality series The Ashlee Simpson Show. Simpson received widespread criticism when she used a pre-recorded vocal track on Saturday Night Live in October 2004. Following a North American concert tour and a film appearance, Simpson released a second number-one album, I Am Me, in October 2005. Her third album, Bittersweet World, was released in April 2008.

She was married to musician Pete Wentz from 2008 to 2011. The couple’s son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz, was born on November 20, 2008. She appeared as Violet Foster, a small town girl in The CW’s 2009 Melrose Place, a revamp of the ’90s drama of the same name.

She is the daughter of Tina Ann (née Drew), a homemaker, and Joe Truett Simpson, a former psychologist and Baptist youth minister who works as Simpson's agent. Simpson's older sister is singer and actress Jessica Simpson. Her parents were married in 1978 and filed for divorce in 2012. Their divorce was finalized in 2013. She attended the same schools as her sister, Prairie Creek Elementary and Richardson North Junior High.

In 1987, when Simpson was three years old, she began studying classical ballet. Simpson enrolled at the School of American Ballet in New York City in 1995, a year in advance, becoming the youngest person ever admitted to the school. During this time, Simpson suffered from an eating disorder for about six months but received treatment from her parents. Her parents made the decision to relocate to Los Angeles, California for Jessica's singing career in 1999. Subsequently, Simpson was cast in television commercials.


Ashlee Nicole Wentz (born October 3, 1984 as Ashlee Nicole Simpson), now professionally known as Ashlee Simpson-Wentz is an American pop rock singer-songwriter, and occasional actress.

When Jessica became a star after releasing her first album, Ashlee became one of her backup dancers.
She got her own MTV reality show entitled The Ashlee Simpson Show, which aired in a subsequent time slot to Newlyweds. It ran in the U.S. for eight weekly episodes over the summer of 2004, and a second season of ten episodes aired from January to March 2005.
Simpson appeared as a musical guest on Episode 568 of Saturday Night Live (October 23–24, 2004), and as is customary for the show's format, she was scheduled to perform two songs. Her first song, "Pieces of Me", was performed without problems. However, when she began her second song, "Autobiography", the vocals for the song "Pieces of Me" were heard again—before she had raised the microphone to her mouth. Simpson began to dance and then left the stage, while the band (not a recording) continued playing. During the closing of the show Simpson appeared with the guest host Jude Law, and said "I'm so sorry. My band started playing the wrong song, and I didn't know what to do, so I thought I'd do a hoe down."
Cosmopolitan magazine chose Simpson to be on the cover of the February 2005 issue, naming her the "Fun Fearless Female of the Year".
Simpson played the role of Roxie Hart in the London stage production of Chicago to rave reviews, from September 25 to October 28, 2006.
She has seven tattoos: a star on one wrist, two cherries on her ankle, the word "love" on her other wrist, the number "3" added to one wrist in 2007, and a large peony flower on one wrist in early March 2008.
Simpson appeared as Cabrera's love interest in the music video for his song "On the Way Down".
The two were reported to have split in August 2004 due to their hectic schedules, but they resumed their relationship for a while afterward, before ending it again in early 2005. Simpson said afterward that they were still friends, although rumors suggested that Simpson did not like the fact that Ryan had moved on to Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas.
Simpson married Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz on May 17, 2008
On November 20, 2008, Simpson gave birth to their son, Bronx Mowgli Wentz.
