Ashlee Simpson goes public with new boyfriend Vincent Piazza

Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza have gone public with their romance after attending the Boardwalk Empire premiere together on Wednesday (14Sep11).

Newly-single Simpson was snapped kissing and walking arm-in-arm with the actor in New York City in June (11), sending gossips into a flurry, and the Pieces of Me singer was all smiles as she joined Piazza on the red carpet for their first public appearance.

She was supported him as he celebrated the launch of his hit TV show's second season.

Simpson filed for divorce from husband Fall Out Boy rocker Pete Wentz in February (11).
