“I’ve been trying to find the right words to share this news. It’s something that has been weighing pretty heavy on my heart, and I feel that it’s best for my healing process to just put it out there. A lot of you have sent me so many messages over the last few months. Some of you have even left comments on certain posts of mine with speculation,” Ashlee wrote. “I’ve always been an incredibly open and honest person. Although no one is entitled to the details of my private life, I have always chosen to share them with you. I acknowledge and understand the fact that such a significant part of my life has been documented on television. Those of you who follow my husband Pete and I on social media have naturally become invested in our lives over the years. That being said, Pete and I have decided to separate.” 

Ashlee emphasized they would continue to support each other and the split is amicable.

“Pete and I have been through so much together over the last ten years of our lives as not only best friends, but partners in navigating parenthood. This was a difficult decision for us. We intend to always be in each other’s lives, and continue to support one another as we grow as individuals,” she wrote. “We will continue being loving, dedicated parents to our son Cameron, who we both love more than anything.” 

Ashlee continued by explaining how she and Pete will continue to co-parent their 3-year-old son, Cameron Hendrix Malleo.

“Our new goal in our journey through life together is to become the best co-parents that we are capable of being. Regardless of your opinions, we ask that you please think of our son and try your best to respect our family during this time,” she concluded.
