Couple jet off to the Caribbean

Despite telling Ryan Seacrest last week that they weren’t planning to go away, it seems newlyweds Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson have treated themselves to a luxury honeymoon to the Caribbean.

The couple originally told the radio host they weren’t planning a holiday and were just ‘chilling out’ in their basement.

But on Thursday they were snapped splashing around in the sea and enjoying the scorching sun.

Pete, 28, and Ashlee, 23 exchanged vows in front of 150 guests at her parents’ Los Angeles home earlier this month. Snaps of the wedding appeared in People magazine – for which they were paid a reported £750,000.

The couple are now in New York, where Pete is expected to play a private Fall Out Boy show for a fan’s 16th birthday party.

The pair remain tight-lipped over rumours that Ashlee is pregnant.
