Jessica Simpson revealed that before her separation from former husband Nick Lachey, the two did not even speak! The singer revealed her personal life in the new revealing book rightly entitled Open Book, which should be released on February 4!
The star went into the details of her marriage and separated from Lackey, among many other aspects of her life.
As you may know, they were one of the most talked about couples at the time because of their MTV series – Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
Now the mother of three writes in her memoirs: “In 1998, when I was only 18, I met Nick Lachey of the group 98 Degrees at an event in Hollywood. Hi, I’m Nick, he said. Hello my life. I thought. Nick loved that I was so strong in my faith and that I had that innocent, wide-eyed approach to life. When he proposed in 2002, I said yes.
It sounds like a fairytale encounter, but unfortunately, in the years that followed, everything fell apart. Jessica Simpson Reveals She And Ex-Husband Nick Lachey â€˜Werenâ€™t Even Speakingâ€™ Leading Up To Their Divorce.
Simpson writes that “our concerns about our own careers seemed to feed each other. We were together for almost 7 years when I said to Nick, “I think I want a divorce.” I heard later that he told the press that he was blind. I do not know how. At the time, we weren’t even talking to each other. Maybe he was just shocked, I got up. I don’t think he ever thought I would take the leap.
The couple shared the news of their separation in November 2005 and in June of the following year, their divorce was finalized.
In a return interview in 2015, Jessica described their marriage as her “ biggest financial mistake ”.
