Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey are friendly again
FRIENDLY … After YEARS of battling, a new report says Jessica Simpson and her EX Nick Lachey are friendly again and talk on the phone. The insider adds, “Jessica and Nick have always checked in on each other, but became closer last October.”
“This divorce was ugly and she ended up paying him millions to go away. It has taken a long time to recover from all that drama, but finally they are on friendly terms again. They have both grown up and moved on and are not getting back together. But they no longer want or need to hate each other. It has helped that JOE SIMPSON who caused all the problems between the once happy couple is no longer in Jessica’s life. She is no longer listening to daddy and making her own decision. Including, to make peace with the man she once loved.”
Nearly a decade after Jessica Simpson and ex-husband Nick Lachey split, the fashion mogul is calling their three-year marriage a financial mistake.
“The biggest money mistakes? I don’t know. For some reason I thought of my first marriage,” Simpson said with a laugh when asked what were some of her biggest money mistakes – personal or business – that has helped her grow, during an appearance on CNBC’s Closing Bell on Thursday.
Host Kelly Evans replied, “That’s actually a common answer believe it or not.”
Since the pair called it quits, Simpson, 35, went on to have two children – daughter Maxwell Drew, 3, and son Ace Knute, 2 – with husband Eric Johnson.
