Pete Wentz lied about Ashlee Simpson not being pregnant. (Suprise Suprise.) Pete Wentz tries to spin why HE thinks it was okay to lie that Ashlee Simpson was not pregnant in a new statement released to MTV on Thursday in which he blaims it on reasons in which he refers to himself as a “boy” (and not a “man”). How ironic.
Wentz tells MTV News:
“Every woman, no matter who they are or what they do for a living, has the right to wait at least 3 months before sharing this very personal news. We wanted to wait until after the first trimester and get a clean bill of health from our doctors before confirming anything, just like any other couple.
“Being a boy I have no idea how to respond to such things and my first instinct was to protect her and the baby.
“It’s insane that you can’t let happy news brew in Hollywood. This wasn’t about press or anything. It was about the health of the baby and trying to find a way to be happy with what should be the most happy time of our lives in the middle of a press blitz. I apologize to anyone who felt misinformed but the truth is, the person and growing baby is who I felt most loyal to protect and defend.”
Of course, Wentz doesn’t explain why he didn’t just say “no comment” or “no comment just yet” instead of flat out giving a lie to everyone.
Wentz and his lies in many people’s eyes don’t just stop with new of Simpson’s pregnancy. News sites widely claim Wentz lied also about his honeymoon when he told radio personality Ryan Seacrest “We’re in the basement [in Los Angeles] on our honeymoon with these blow-up palm trees”. Simpson and Wentz were snapped hours later on a tropical beach … not in Los Angeles.
Wentz reportedly has given Simpson a bubble bee made out of legos.
Suggestion to Simpson: give a handy sign made of legos to Wentz that says “no comment”.
