Fanon & RPF Characterization


The most popular pairing for Pete is with FOB vocalist Patrick Stump: see Pete/Patrick.

Pete's real-life relationships tend to be more public than his bandmates', and as such tend to appear relatively frequently in fanworks. Most notable among his partners is Ashlee Simpson, to whom he was married from 2008 to 2011 and with whom he has a son. Meagan Camper, his current girlfriend and mother of his second son, also sometimes appears in fanworks. Jeanae, his on-again, off-again girlfriend from circa 2002 to 2007 and the subject of many of Fall Out Boy's early songs, is also frequently mentioned. Jeanae is a polarizing figure in fandom, as many fans are uncomfortable by her and Pete's turbulent relationship, which began when he was 23 and she was only 15.

Pete is also frequently paired with Mikey Way of My Chemical Romance, with whom he became close when the bands toured together on Van's Warped Tour in the summer of 2005. This time period has since been dubbed by fans as "The Summer of Like." See Pete/Mikey.

Pete is also paired with Gabe Saporta of Cobra Starship, Ryan Ross of Panic! At the Disco, and William Beckett of The Academy Is... (beckettxwentz).

He was good friends with Bebe Rexha during their time in Black Cards together, but not much appeared in the way of pairing fanworks compared to the other main pairings.
