It's been two years since Ashlee Simpson filed for divorce from Pete Wentz, and the Fall Out Boy bassist is finally talking to the public about the split and the toll it took on him.
The 33 year-old admitted recently to Rolling Stone that his addiction to prescription pills Xanax and Klonopin resumed and he experienced paranoia following the break-up:
"I was probably physically and mentally addicted. It started from insomnia and anxiety from flying, then it spiraled... I felt like a loser already. I'd basically gone from being the guy in Fall Out Boy to being the guy, who, like, hangs out all day. I didn't see how I'd ever come out on the other side... I was scared of everything. I thought there were always people listening to me. Like, I had my house searched for bugs. It was crazy."

Jessica Simpson "couldn't wait" to pose naked. The heavily-pregnant star - who has previously struggled with her fluctuating weight - bared all for the cover of Elle magazine and admitted she is currently feeling more confident about her body than ever.
"Normally I'm hoping to be 107 pounds and I don't eat, but I ate cheesecake before we shot. I wasn't nervous at all, Normally, I'm so shy. I'm not the person you see photographed in a bikini on a beach. But for some reason, being pregnant, it's so easy for me. I feel so comfortable in my skin."
Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz's divorce has been finalized. According to legal documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, the couple - who split in February after three and a half years of marriage - formally ended their union on November 22.
However, TMZ reports details of the pair's divorce settlement are being kept under wraps, and it is unclear who will be given primary physical custody of the couple's three-year-old son Bronx. Ashlee and Pete are also believed to have worked out a "secret deal" regarding the division of their other assets and multi-million dollar empire.
The former Fall Out Boy rocker previously admitted he and his estranged wife were working together to make sure they make home life as "easy as possible" for Bronx: "Everything at home is good. We try to make his life as easy to navigate as possible and he's growing up so it's important for everyone who loves him to be involved with his life."
Pete Wentz is dating a mystery brunette. The former Fall Out Boy rocker – who split from wife Ashlee Simpson in February – stepped out with his two-year-old son Bronx and his leggy new lady to visit a Los Angeles playground.
"She's a model and it's a new relationship. They're taking things slowly but he obviously thinks highly of her to introduce her to Bronx," a source said.
The couple were pictured holding hands in the park and he also took her on a date to Katsuya Hollywood restaurant on Monday where he set about impressing her by ordering the most expensive bottle of sake spirit on the menu. Pete, 32, also cryptically Tweeted earlier this week: "You always get to make the decision to be a bright light in someone's life or enhancing their own darkness. Don't complain when you pick wrong."
Divorcée Ashlee Simpson is dating Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza.
The 26-year-old singer-and-actress - who split up with husband Pete Wentz after just over two years of marriage in February - has been spotted kissing and holding hands with the actor in New York.
It is not the first time Ashlee, who has two-year-old son Bronx Mowgli with former Fall Out Boy star Pete, has spent time with another man since her break-up - she has also enjoyed the company of D.R.U.G.S. front-man Craig Owens, who is a good friend of her ex's.
However, in March Ashlee was seen holding hands with her 32-year-old estranged husband, sparking speculation the pair had reconciled as she "lovingly leaned" on him while out.
"Ashlee and Pete held hands, and Pete especially looked very happy. While waiting for their drinks, Pete had his arm around Ashlee and they definitely looked like a couple again. Ashlee kept smiling and lovingly leaned on Pete," a source said.
As reported earlier, Ashlee Simpson will soon be appearing on Broadway.
Chicago producer Barry Weissler told reporters that Simpson will start her Broadway run on November 30, for a ten-week commitment.
Ashlee formerly played the role in the London production of the play, back in 2006.

In a recent interview, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz shot back at the media for commenting on her sister’s weight.
“My sister has an incredible body. I feel sorry for anyone who would judge her, because she’s one sexy lady. It’s disgusting that people would say those things.”
Ashlee, who landed the cover of this month’s Women’s Health magazine, also added that she cannot wait to gain the pounds: “There’s gonna be a time when I’m way curvier, and that’ll be sexy too. What defines sexy is not someone’s weight. Personally I like curves. ... I wanna look good [for me]. I wanna feel good.”
The weighty backlash from Ashlee comes shortly after Jessica wrote an angry post on her Twitter regarding her sister’s swift departure from her show Melrose Place.
Those Simpson sisters sure do know how to get each others’ backs.

Ashlee Simpson-Wentz says that yoga helped her bond with her son.
The 24-year-old star, who has a nine-month-old baby, Bronx Mowgli, with husband Pete Wentz, loved doing the low-impact stretching exercises when she was pregnant as it made her feel closer to her baby.
“Your body is changing, and it’s such an amazing time to feel that connection. I did prenatal yoga, which was a nice way to mellow down and focus on me and Bronx. Being pregnant was the healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. Except for the cupcakes!”
Ashlee enjoyed being pregnant, adding that it gave her valuable time to adjust to the way her life was changing: “I’ve grown up so much. The great thing about being pregnant is that you have nine months and it really does prepare you. Being a mom’s so empowering and incredible. I’m one of those people who believes that life brings things to you at a certain time for a certain reason, and if you just go with it, that’s where the best moments come from.”
The press are always the first to act when a celebrity makes a mistake. We love nothing better than seeing the perfect tumble into a big pile of oops. But when the press makes a mistake regarding a celebrity…that’s when things start to get ugly.
Look on the left-hand side of OK! Magazine’s latest cover, which refers to Jessica’s little sis as “Ashley” Simpson instead of Ashlee Simpson. Uh-oh.
