(LOS ANGELES) -- Just one month after filing for divorce from Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz, Ashlee Simpson was spotted at a mall in Los Angeles shopping with another musician.
The rocker in question, Craig Owens of the band D.R.U.G.S., is signed to Wentz's Decaydance Records, and any romance rumors are unfounded, a Simpson source told People.com.
The source noted, "Craig is a longtime friend and was comforting Ashlee during this difficult time. She's not moving on. There's no race for a new relationship. They're friends."
However, a Wentz source told UsWeekly.com, "Pete did a lot for this guy. 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."
