Jessica and Nick Divvy Up

Jessica and Nick have finally come to an agreement on how to divide their assets. Jessica didn't sign a prenup, so by California law Nick is entitled to half of their estimated worth of $36 million. Nick was initially offered a crappy deal by Joe Simpson so he fought for more. Now he has agreed to settle in order to avoid a drawn out court battle. TMZ reports:

Sources say in the property settlement -- which has not yet been filed in court -- Nick will take significantly more than the $1.5 million, but considerably less than 50% of what he and Jessica earned during the marriage. Two sources in Nick's camp made it clear to TMZ that Lachey agreed to end the dispute because he does not want to hurt anyone in a contentious court battle.

Good for Nick for fighting but not wanting to drag everyone in the dirt. He knows he deserves to cash out, but it's not worth the tabloid fodder so why not settle for a few mil and call it a day. On the other hand, Jess was spotted doing what she does best with her money - shopping in NYC. More images so

oh yeah good questions about pimp daddy joe hoe, i wonder about his thoughts of jessica at least because of the one incident of him talking about her boobs and their size, thats just not right, gross. And yes, thankfully they did not have a kid, what a mess that would of been

I never even heard of Nick until he got with Jessica so I don't know his money situation. On the newlywed (spelling?) show she seemed kinda ditzy and he seemed pretty mean to her.

oh, and newlyweds never really helped her MUSIC career...no matter how much she tried to!! she has an excuse for every album that comes out, first being compared to Brit, then timing of her second album during a tragedy, some garbage christmas album? a remix album? and now her precious vocal cords/and public persona that nick is tarnishing! (at least, im sure she'll claim that anyway) so she has to go on her own little promotion show and cry so people will feel sorry for her??? how are her other things doing? what is she endorsing now??? she's been foraying into nasty wigs/skanky edible crap that is in the discount bin at my walgreens/disgusting shoes/and clothes that she doesn't even wear or have enough sense to claim they're her favorite jeans AND gets sued for it!!!! because her music STINKS!!!!!!! am I missing anything??!! okay, im sorry, i really dislike her...

Papa joe was in charge of editing Newlyweds, I remember him saying that somewhere, so he had control over what went into the show (i mean, how much control, I dunno) so they made them both into characters, so he made her into the pretty-yet-loveable moron...but I remember even before there had been trouble, they had one of their anniversaries on the show, and it seemed like she was completely bored, not even appreciative of Nick's romantic efforts, she only perked up when she got some jewelry...i'm pretty sure I remember that, as it stuck out in my mind because I thought she was sooo rude!! she's really just self-centered, and so selfish, I can't believe that she would be so sneaky about money, such a spoilt brat!! as ive said through this whole thing...the marriage was the best thing that happened to her, and the divorce was the best thing that happened to nick!! unfortunately they both got hurt in their own way

Nick was never managed by Joe, and Nick had a prenup drawn up on the request of his people because of Jessica's spending habits, but she declined because she didn't like the idea of a prenup, and her father also advised her not to go along with it.

I personally think the only place it will be a hit is in Dance Clubs, or like Drag Clubs or something. Most of the songs are very "dancey"
