Ashlee Simpson spotted with new man

Ashlee Simpson is reportedly dating Boardwalk Empire star Vincent Piazza.

In February, the 26-year-old singer and actress split from rocker husband Pete Wentz, the father of her two-year-old son Bronx, but there had been much speculation that they could reconcile as they have remained close friends.

But Ashlee was pictured kissing Vincent as they enjoyed a romantic day out in New York.

The couple were seen laughing and smiling as they strolled through Manhattan with their arms around one another, sipping drinks.

An onlooker told Us Weekly: "They were laughing and chatting. She'd stop to kiss him; she couldn't take her eyes off him."

The next day Vincent took Ashlee to the airport where they were spotted kissing and hugging goodbye.

Ashlee and Pete, 32, announced their split in February when Ashlee filed for divorce after almost three years of marriage.

The singer is based in Los Angles, where she lives with their son, and they often meet his dad Pete.
