Ring the Alarm: New Couple Alert! Is love in the air once more for exes Pete Wentz and Michelle Trachtenberg?
The last time Michelle got caught playing catch-up with her former flame, she found herself doused with a drink tossed by Wentz’s new estranged wife, Ashlee Simpson. Nevertheless, the former Fall Out Boy bassist was spied grabbing a cup of Joe with the Gossip Girl actress at a Los Angeles coffeehouse over the weekend. The encounter has sent The Rumor Mill abuzz with speculation of a re-developing relationship between Michelle and Pete. Not that anyone could blame the father of one for moving on; after all, Ashlee’s already been linked to two other man — including a former friend of Pete’s — in the months since their split.
Wentz dated Trachtenberg before his marriage to Simpson in 2008; though he routinely cheated on her with Ash, depending on who’s telling the story. Simpson and Wentz, 32, now playing with the group Black Cards, announced their split in February. With a divorce now thisclose to being finalized, could the former couple be rekindling their romance?
For now anyway, no one’s talking.
