Jessica Simpson isn’t ready to turn the page on her divorce from Nick Lachey

Jessica Simpson isn’t ready to turn the page on her divorce from Nick Lachey

In the new paperback edition of her best-selling memoir, Open Book, Jessica Simpson, the singer, 40, opens up about their shock split with her ex-husband Nick Lachey, sharing several handwritten entries from her personal journal. The pair seemed like the perfect couple on their hit MTV show Newlyweds, but behind the scenes, Nick, 47, and Jessica were struggling. “I didn’t want to be married any longer but I was also afraid to be alone,” she writes. “The house is hushed. Everything is still. I sit in solitude. To cry. To feel alone.”


In another passage, Jessica Simpson recalls being “saddened beyond belief” when her ex-husband Nick Lachey started dating his now-wife Vanessa Minnillo less than a year after their split. “So Nick, [you are] with another already?” the songstress asks. “Seems that you forgot the love you spoke to me.”
