Ashlee Simpson was recently pictured strolling with "Boardwalk Empire" star Vincent Piazza in New York City, raising speculation she may have moved on to a new man following her split from husband Pete Wentz earlier this year.
The parties have not commented. Simpson, a 26-year-old actress and singer, is seen walking with her arm around the waist of Piazza, who plays Lucky Luciano on the HBO series, in a photo posted on the websites of People and Us Weekly, the latter of which dubbed the actor "Ashlee Simpson's new boyfriend." Both magazines said the two were spotted kissing on June 15.
In February, Simpson filed for divorce from Wentz, a 32-year-old member of the rock band Fall Out Boy and the father of 2-year-old son Bronx, their only child. They married in May 2008.
"Ashlee's been my best friend for five years; she's the mother of my child," Wentz said on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show on in March. "I have nothing but love and respect for her and going through something like this isn't easy, but we're friends and the most important thing is to put our son first."
Correction: In the June 21 story above, OnTheRedCarpet.com erroneously reported Pete Wentz was a member of the rock band Good Charlotte. He is actually a member of the rock band Fall Out Boy. This version of the article has been updated to reflect the correction.
