Ashlee Simpson may have found her rebound man — who just happens to be a friend of Pete Wentz, her soon-to-be ex-husband.

Photos at E! News show Simpson, 25, shopping in L.A. with rocker Craig Owens, who holds her close with his arm around her shoulders.

(Last month, the singer-actress filed for divorce from Fall Out Boy’s Wentz, 31, after nearly two years of marriage.)

According to E!, singer-songwriter Owens, 26, is the former frontman for the punk group Chiodos, and is now signed to Wentz’ s record label, Decaydance. This summer, Owens will tour with a new group Wentz helped organize, D.R.U.G.S. (Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows).

Back in January 2010, Wentz even gushed to MTV News that Owens was his favorite new artist.

So what does Wentz think of his protege’s new potential romance with his future ex-wife?

“Pete did a lot for this guy,” a Wentz source tells UsMagazine.com. “Craig was in another band and got kicked out. Pete found Craig, built a band around him and signed him. He’s shocked at how this guy is repaying him.”

Counters a source close to Simpson: “Ashlee and Craig are longtime friends. They have spent some time together, and he is comforting her throughout this difficult time.”

Put a fork in it!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has given up trying to mend fences with frenemy Camille Grammer.

The pair have traded barbs throughout the Bravo hit’s current season — but Richards, 41, wanted to lend her support in the wake of Grammer’s messy split from Kelsey Grammer.

After 14 years of marriage, Kelsey, 55, filed for divorce from Camille, 41, in July, and and immediately stepped out with new girlfriend Kayte Walsh, 29; although his divorce isn’t yet finalized, he and Walsh confirmed their engagement last week.

“I actually, in spite of everything did try to reach out to Camille,” Richards told USMagazine.com at Monday’s NOH8 campaign anniversary bash in Hollywood. “And she didn’t respond, so…I’m done. I’m done.”

During a memorable trip to NYC, Grammer, 42, overheard Richards call her “insecure.” Richards’ response? “You know what? You need to get help!”

Later, Grammer accused Richards of being jealous and “pernicious.”
