Rocker Pete Wentz phoned in Monday morning to chat about his new afro new band Black Cards on “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” and debuted the band’s most recent track “Summer Nights,” which serves as the band’s first-ever radio play! Amidst the music chatter, Pete also divulged about the divorce and his relationship now with estranged wife Ashlee Simpson.

Pete honestly confessed about his and Ashlee’s relationship, “I think the hardest thing is when you’re in the public profile it’s hard to maintain your private life.” Adding, “Ashlee’s been my best friend for 5 years, she’s the mother of my child.”

And Pete doesn’t have any intention of cutting his BFF out of the picture, revealing, “We’re friends and the most important thing is putting our son first.”

Although an unfortunate situation to be in, Pete’s able to shed light upon the dark as he lightheartedly added, “It’s like the one time on earth I’m like ‘Thank god Charlie Sheen exists.'”
