Jessica Simpson Reveals How She Told Nick Lachey She Wanted a Divorce

Jessica Simpson is reflecting on her divorce from Nick Lachey after they were married from 2002 until 2006.

“In 1998, when I was 18, I met Nick Lachey of the group 98 Degrees at a Hollywood event. ‘Hi I’m Nick,’ he said. Hello, my life. I thought,” Jessica wrote in her memoir “Open Book,” via The Blast.

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 wrote.

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

Jessica also opened up about her relationship with John Mayer and what happened between them.
