Los Angeles: A month after filing for divorce, Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz have been spotted holding hands while out for a friendly lunch, sparking reconciliation rumours.

The popstar and the former `Fall Out Boy` bassist were spotted out and about in Beverly Hills with their two-year-old son Bronx, reported People magazine online.

The 26-year-old younger sister of Jessica Simpson had filed for divorce in February, citing "irreconcilable differences", but looked happy in the company of Wentz.

The family appeared relaxed with Wentz placing a protective arm around his soon-to-be ex-wife as they headed into a coffee shop.

The pair have been seen together several times since announcing their separation and even spent Valentine’s Day together.

The pair had married in May 2008 and Ashlee gave birth to their son Bronx Mowgli Wentz on November 20 2008.
