We recently heard about Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza going their separate ways. The reported problem was Vincent’s busy work schedule kept him from being able to spend much time with Ashlee. Has Ashlee already moved on with a new guy? She was seen out shopping with an unidentified man in Santa Monica yesterday.
The guy could just be a friend, of course. But have you noticed how many celebs announce a split right before you see them stepping out with someone else? I think many celeb couples try to avoid announcing a split right away, which makes sense: who wants to be hounded about a breakup right after it happens? It seems like the public announcement comes when one of the celebs meets someone new and things get serious. So maybe this is Ashlee’s new guy. We’ll know eventually, I’m sure.
