Nick Lachey declares his marriage with Jessica Simpson is doing well
Between thousand, or maybe more, Nick Lachey is the one who knows the right time, the right place, and what to say. Served as a guest host on popular chat show "Live With Regis & Kelly," the singer made use the moment to clarify many reports focusing on his marriage with wife Jessica Simpson.
As he was asked by show regular Kelly Ripa about the reports claiming he and Simpson are heading for divorce, Lachey defended himself explaining "There's the saying that when they stop talking about you that's when you have to worry. So that's kind of what you have to keep in your mind is that as long as people care, it's a good thing. But it does get old. There's so much negativity that is out there and a lot of it's based on absolutely nothing true."
Further he said, "So you just have to let it roll off... We're shocked that people are still on this same rumor. We've been divorced for six months now, apparently. It's like it just keeps going on and on and on. I have aunts and uncles and even my mom calls (and asks), 'Is everything okay?' I say, 'Mom, don't you think I would tell you before you read it in In Touch Weekly that I'm getting divorced?' I would absolutely, positively, like to set the record straight. Everything is absolutely wonderful in marriage and life and love. We've been saying it for months now. We're okay... They insist on going back to the same old thing about I'm jealous of her career. I love my wife to death and I support the heck out of her, as any husband would."
