Ashlee Simpson, the 26-year-old American singer, has been spotted kissing the 'Boardwalk Empire' star Vincent Piazza, reports US Weekly Magazine. Simpson appears to have gone public with her and Vincent's relationship, just months after she was photographed holding hands with her estranged husband Pete Wentz.
Simpson and Piazza were spotted kissing and strolling arm-in-arm in New York on 15th June 2011, all but confirming the couple are an item. An eyewitness noted, "They were laughing and chatting. She'd stop to kiss him; she couldn't take her eyes off him". The next day, Piazza took Simpson to the airport where she boarded a flight back to Los Angeles. A friend of the singer spoke optimistically about the blossoming romance, saying, "Vincent's a chill guy, very artsy, the quiet type. He likes her". A month after her split from Wentz in February, Ashlee was spotted with the musician Craig Owens, but she quickly shot down rumours of a romance. Wentz hasn't been publically linked to anyone since he and Simpson announced their plan to divorce. Representatives for Simpson and Piazza are yet to comment on speculation the couple have begun a romance.
Ashlee Simpson and Wentz welcomed their son 'Bronx Mowgli' in November 2008. The couple filed for divorce on 8th February 2011 citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for seeking to end their three year marriage.
