Looks like the once-cordial breakup between Ashlee Simpson and her soon to be ex-husband Pete Wentz is  about to take a turn for the worst, and their infant son Bronx is smack dab in the middle of it!

On Tuesday (Mar 8), Wentz filed papers with a Los Angeles court seeking joint primary and legal custody of his 2-year old son with his estranged wife Ashlee Simpson.

According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Wentz also wants each party to pay for their own legal fees even though his soon to be ex-wife has already asked the court to make Pete foot the bill for both sides.

Not only does she want him to fork over the baby, but she wants him to fork over the money as well? SMH….only in America.
