I know this will come as a shock to you but it doesn’t look like Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey’s marriage is going to make it. In fact, they’ve apparently filed for divorce.
Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey look like they’re on their way to a speedy divorce, according to legal papers filed in L.A. County Superior Court.
The documents, signed by both Lachey and Simpson, request that retired Superior Court Judge Dana Senit Henry be appointed “for the sole purpose of” ending the couple’s marriage.
The former Newlyweds are asking the judge to “bifurcate” the case, meaning to make the divorce official without settling all the financial details of the split. The decision should come within a month’s time.
In fact, money has been a sticking point between the couple since their split last November. Soon after Simpson filed for divorce on December 16, Lachey specified that he reserved the right to ask for spousal support, though in a published interview he denied that he planned to ask for alimony.
Professionally, Simpson has been causing quite a buzz with her new video for her single “Public Affair.” Simpson costars in it with Eva Longoria, Christina Applegate and Ryan Seacrest among others, and shot it recently at a Los Angeles roller rink.
And they seemed so right for one another, too.
ASL observes: “Get ready for a fierce battle over the millions that Jessica Simpson earned while the couple was married. Under California law, all earnings and most other assets acquired during their marriage are divided 50/50. She has offered Nick considerably less than 50%.” She also provides several photographs demonstrating why Simpson commands so much money.
UPDATE: The divorce is already final:
Famous “Newlyweds” Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are single again. Papers filed Friday in Superior Court show the pop stars “are restored to the status of single, unmarried persons.”
