Keeping somewhat of a low profile up until recently, singer Ashlee Simpson has returned to occupy the headlines once again with both the release of her new single ‘Bat for a Heart’ and her split from Boardwalk Empire’s Vincent Piazza.
Simpson and Piazza have been dating since June 2011 but have now broken up over the Thanksgiving holiday, claiming that their busy schedules got in the way. “Vincent has been working a lot, so he hasn’t been able to spend that much time with Ashlee, which has caused some problems,” an undisclosed source informed Page Six of the New York Post. Adding, “It was a mutual agreement to split, but things have been bumpy for a little while, so perhaps they might reconcile.”
There may be some truth to their decision to split. At the moment the younger Simpson is gearing up to release her fourth studio album. Could spending time in the studio and raising her son Bronx who she shares with Pete Wentz be to blame? Or does it have something to do with the mystery man the singer was spotted with in New York. Now it appears there is more to the story since Simpson was snapped out and about with an unknown man and her son, all holding hands while they walked around the city.
So far Simpson has yet to comment on who was seen with. The same goes for Jessica Simpson who may be pregnant with her second child. As far Piazza, the actor is currently keeping busy, working on the hit HBO show Boardwalk Empire where he plays the role of series regular Lucky Luciano. Piazza is also attached to star in the 2013 movie ‘3 Nights in the Desert’ and ‘Surviving Me’.
Time will tell if the former flames split over their schedules or because Simpson has found a new love.
