Rumored dating D.R.U.G.S. rocker Craig Owen after her split from Pete Wentz, the 'Pieces of Me' singer has her friend stating that she and Craig are friends.

Singer has turned to D.R.U.G.S. rocker Craig Owens for comfort, after filing for divorce from estranged husband . Simpson and the rocker were seen together at an Los Angeles shopping mall, sparking rumors of a budding romance. But a close friend of the star has shot down the reports.

Ironically Owens is signed to Pete Wentz's label, Decaydance Records.

Ashlee and Pete have decided to break up in February. In a joint statement, the then couple said, "After careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our No. 1 priority."
