Ashlee Simpson has been photographed kissing actor Vincent Piazza, sparking rumours of a blossoming new romance.
Simpson and estranged husband rocker Pete Wentz filed for divorce in February (11) but family photos of the couple laughing and holding hands surfaced a month later (Mar11), prompting rumours of a reconciliation.
However, the Pieces of Me hitmaker was snapped kissing and walking arm-in-arm with Boardwalk Empire star Piazza in New York City last week (begs13Jun11), marking the first time Simpson has stepped out with a new man since her separation with Wentz.
A representative for Simpson and Piazza has yet to comment on the romance reports.
