Jess and Nick Settle Up

Jessica didn't want a prenup before she married Nick since he was the rich one. However, the tables turned and Pimp Daddy Simpson fought hard to keep his little girl's money in the family. Nick knew he wasn't going to get half, but he did want more than the initial BS $1.5 million offer from the Simpson's. After all, Jessica's empire grew after the couple became a hit for being those adorable MTV newlyweds. Lucky for Nick he doesn't care as much about money and he has moved on with a new love. As for Jessica's recent depression, well maybe it has to do with the fact that she just settled with Nick for an undisclosed amount but supposedly significantly more than their initial offer. This should be good news to someone who can still afford a private jet even if she stiffs the valet.

it's so sad that she was not smart enough to keep the 'old man' out of her married life. i'm afraid as long as he is the controlling manager that he appears to be she will never have peace or a successful marriage. her sister seems a bit stronger. the old man ( t-o-m ) wants to control every aspect of her life & seems to be doing a good job of it !!! you can be sure he loves to ogle all the girls young acquaintances if he makes such remarks about his own daughters breasts !!! i of i course do not know one thing about his relationship with his wife; but would not be at all surprised to see him ' fall in love ' with some sweet young thing & divorce the wife. come on girls, you are adults now, you do not need 'tom' controlling your every move & expenditure; it's time to break loose.

She's even earned the hate of people who once were fans. There's little to like about publicity hos.

The Jessica hate comes from her being pathetic, not that talented, and wasteful of her voice.

I'd much rather hear about her than Britney or Paris. I don't understand where the Jessica hate came from either.

I also looooooove how the the Paparazzi are in front of the private jet taking these pictures. No one is allowed in that area. Do the Simpson's expect us to believe anyone other than Papa Joe took these pictures and sold them to the tabloids? Why does anyone keep posting the soooo obviously planted photos on the net and in the tabs? Please, end this now! This family takes and sells their own private moments to the tabloids! This is just sad. It's even more sad that I have commented 3 times! LOL!

Without her marriage and "Newlyweds" she'd be nothing. And bottom line, Nick signed on with the devil when he signed on with Pimpdaddy Joe and Pimpdaddy Joe (the Simpson camp was his management team after the marriage) tanked his career. Pimpdaddy pimped out his daughter while keeping Nick tightly reigned in. Nick absolutely deserves a good payout for helping Jesucka become a "star" and for putting his career on the backburner.

She cannot afford a private jet. The movie company is paying for this. She and her family are ALWAYS at the airport with the normal people. Most famous people fly in regualr jets. She probably makes the least amount of money compared to all other celebs (K-fed takes the lowest, I guess). She does not sell her stuff well, she's just always in the tabs. I guess she does make most of her money feeding the magazines stories about her so called "personal life." She's probably made her millions doing that.

I feel sorry for Jessica but I still don't like her. Hopefully she'll straighten up and stand on her on legs soon. I hate her dad, he is soo damn controlling. ______________________________________ \Don't chase the beat of your heart/

They were cute on Newlyweds, but cute doesn't make a marriage. I don't want him ever to be associated with her and her family again. Is she going to suddenly wise up and lose her leeches for the opportunity to be with him again, I say no. Some people think that people should lighten up on Jessica, well I'm starting to feel the same way for Vanessa. Is it so hard to believe, that she may have fallen in love with Nick? She's been nothing but supportive of him, and sorry, but Jessica never appeared to support Nick. Why is Vanessa a user, but a woman like Katie Holmes is totally in love with Tom Cruise? I don't buy it. It's like people have this constant countdown as to when Nick and Vanessa are going to breakup. "Oh,they won't last after the summer, or they'll breakup once his tour starts. They'll still together, and it's not just for apperance sake. You've got to be a real shady person to play upon someone's emotions like that, just for your own gain. I don't see that in Vanessa.

I sooo want to know the details on this. :( And I agree it was them being together that elevated both of them. We can clearly see that her alone isn't going so well. Bad choice to pick Pimp Daddy Joe over her marriage.

i wish they were still together too- he kept her grounded and she kept things exciting... but then of course i still wish brit would still get back with justin T. i guess i believe in fairy tails too!

Am I the only one who kind of wishes they were still together? I never watched the Newlyweds until it was out on DVD, and I was about half way through season 3 when word came out they were splitting up. I guess I am one of those who still believes in fairy tales!

Without the marriage, they wouldn't have had a MTV reality show...and without the reality show she wouldn't have elevated to the next level of stardom. So really, their marriage helped her make a lot of the money that she earned during the marriage. I definitely think he should have gotten a big pay out. As for why people hate on her...I think that when the divorce happened, it kind of seemed like she started to get a little too big for her britches in the ego department. There were rumors that she cheated on him (accompanied by pictures of her leaving hotels in a man's shirt...doing the walk of shame). It looked like she thought she could do better, and she was the one who decided to move on. And she has always seemed fake in my opinion. She played stupid on the show, and it worked, so she started trying to be this "character" in real life. I respect people more when they are just honest and themselves. Papa Simpson and his daughter always seem to trying to spin things, rather than just letting her seem normal. Nick has always seemed 100% genuine. But that's just my opinion. :-)

I personally don't understand why people hate on her so much. I vote for more Jessica stories. And with regards to this post, love-smove. Every celebrity needs to opt for a pre-nup. Period. If the love is meant to last, then they shouldn't be worried.

The studio probably paid for the private jet. I agree with Holly, less Jessica stories for 2007.
