Jessica Simpson Opens Up About Her Relationship With Nick Lachey “Maybe he was just shocked that I stood up for myself”

Posted by

If you were a fan of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey’s reality show Newlyweds, then you know how their breakup was such a sad moment back in the early 2000’s. After season 3, the reality show and the couple called it quits. Jessica filed for divorce and it was made official in 2006. A month later, Nick blamed the split all on Simpson in an interview with Rolling Stone. Nick claimed that Jessica told him days before Thanksgiving, “I think I want a divorce.”

 “That blindsided me. I basically said, ‘Please, let’s sleep on it.’ But when we woke up the next day … she was still sure.”

He went on to say: “On the day she filed for divorce, I drove to her parents’ house and tried to change her mind. I had done the research and I had the number of the best marriage counsellor in town.” However, Jessica kept quiet about the whole thing, until now.  Writing in her upcoming autobiography, Open Book, Jessica began by talking about the moment she first met Nick in 1998  “In 1998, I met Nick Lachey … at a Hollywood event. ‘Hi, I’m Nick,’ he said. ‘Hello my life,’ I thought. It was love at first sight.”

“Nick loved the fact that I was so strong in my faith and that I had this wide-eyed, innocent approach to life. When he proposed in 2002, I said yes,” she added. Jessica said that that their respective career anxieties “just seemed to feed off each other,” and ultimately led to problems.


Jessica admits to being confused at Nick’s comment of being “blindsided.”

“We had been together almost seven years when I told Nick, ‘I think I want a divorce’. I later heard that he told the press that he was blindsided. I don’t know how.”

“At that point, we were not even speaking to each other,” she continued. “Maybe he was just shocked that I stood up for myself. I don’t think he ever thought I would take the leap.”

While the two didn’t last as long as many had hoped, the two have moved on to find love with other people. Nick and Vanessa Lachey got married in 2011, while Jessica and Eric Johnson married in 2014. Both have three children.
