A representative for Ashlee Simpson-Wentz
has denied claims that the star has fallen out with her husband Pete Wentz.
The singer was reportedly unhappy over the Fall Out Boy star's choice for a singer for his new band Black Cards. New Yorker Bebe Rexh is now fronting the group.
A source told In Touch
: "Ashlee is making a huge effort to make sure that Bebe feels like she belongs - and knows that Ashlee likes her, but Ashlee is so insecure, it brings out the worst in her.
"She was so worried about Pete straying that she was fighting with him constantly about Bebe. Her friends told her to stop being so controlling or it would drive him away. Finally, she listened. Now that she's giving him more space, they're getting along much better."
However, a spokesperson for the pair said: "Both [Ashlee and Pete] are committed to their marriage and are each other's biggest support system professionally and personally."
