Yet another reason we love Nick - he is fighting for spousal support. Normally we would not think this is necessary but since Jessica was so pimped out over the years during their marriage it makes sense that Nick gets his share. Besides, America fell in love with the cute, innocent, spoiled, ditsy blonde that Nick put up with for our entertainment. People reports:
According to court papers filed on Friday, Lachey cited irreconcilable differences for the dissolution of the marriage. In addition to financial provisions, the singer is requesting miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects, his earnings and accumulations from and after the date of separation and additional property assets to be determined.
Interestingly, Lachey reports their separation date as Dec. 13 while Simpson claims it was Nov. 23. The discrepancy in the dates is particularly relevant because of the nearly $1 million Simpson earned during those weeks that she'd have to split with her former husband under California law.
And to think - we were so hoping for a reconciliation between these two. It's such a shame that fame totally ruined their marriage but luckily no kids were involved and now it's a matter of seeing who will have lasting power.
