Are Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz Reconciling?

The couple, who split in February after two years of marriage, are photographed holding hands and looking happy in LA

All hope may not be lost for Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz!

The couple, who split in February after two years of marriage, have been seen looking pretty together on a number of recent occasions (including runs to In-N-Out Burger and Taco Bell!). In their most public display of affection since the breakup, Wentz and Simpson were photographed holding hands on Thursday while strolling through Los Angeles' Beverly Glen mall with their son Bronx, 2.


"Ashlee and Pete held hands, and Pete especially looked very happy," an onlooker tells People. "While waiting for their drinks, Pete had his arm around Ashlee and they definitely looked like a couple again." 

Adds the observer: "Ashlee kept smiling and lovingly leaned on Pete." 

Still, another source says that fans of the couple shouldn't get their hopes up too high.

"This is not a sign that they are getting back together," the insider says. "They both care about each other tremendously. They both love Bronx very much, and Ashlee has always called Pete her best friend. They are in the middle of still trying to figure this out." 

Simpson and the Fall Out Boy rocker married in 2008 at her parents' home in California. Just months before their split, Wentz told PopEater he was looking forward to making many more family memories.

"The great thing right now is that my family is very mobile and are able to tour with me," he said. "And I think that's the only thing that would've been a hurdle. But the fact they're kind of able to go, I want to be back out there."
