Pete and Ashlee Deny Marriage Problems

Ashlee Simpson Wentz and Pete Wentz

The Wentzs put rumors of marital strife to rest with a public kiss.

It appears the magic is still alive for Pete Wentz and wife Ashlee Simpson Wentz. The couple put rumors of marital woes to rest with a very public display of affection onstage at MTV Australia’s Music Video Awards Friday night. Ashlee made a surprise appearance onstage with her husband halfway through the show and explained she had been busy with some "some acting work going on and just being a mom," before taking Wentz offstage. When they returned to the stage, they feverishly kissed for several minutes to a cheering crowd. Wentz said after the mini-makeout, "Sorry, we haven't seen each other in a while. We're going to go and find some quiet time and fornicate somewhere." The couple high-fived and exited the stage, presumably to make good on that statement.

The couple just gave birth to their first child,Bronx Mowgli, in 2008 so the couple has been quite busy between a new baby, acting and music projects, and just being married. If there were rumors of issues between the two, looks like this little display might just prove that the couple are right on track. You have fun, you crazy kids!
