Pete Wentz dismisses Ashlee Simpson pregnancy reportsApril 15th, 2008 - 5:30 pm ICT by admin
Washington, April 15 (ANI): Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz has dismissed tabloid rumours that his fiancee Ashlee Simpson is pregnant, calling it a witch hunt in an email.
After the couple announced their engagement on April 9, a number of US celebrity websites, including OK! and Us Weekly, reported that Ashlee was expecting a baby.
However, Wentz issued a statement denying rumours of impending fatherhood, emailing MTV News to rebut the reports.
“There is a witch hunt for people to be pregnant whenever they get engaged in Hollywood,” Contactmusic quoted Wentz, as saying.
“This is all news to me. I can’t wait for the story about how I’m really in a gay relationship and this is all just a cover.
“I mean really, this is crazy. We’re engaged, that’s true, and happy about it,” he added.
A rep for the couple said the pair is indeed engaged, continuing: “beyond that, there is nothing to add”. (ANI)
