Nick Lachey has an interview in Rolling Stone in which he reveals some insight as to what went down with him and Jessica Simpson. Regarding the ending of his three year marriage he says:
“I don’t know if there were other men. But if she did cheat, it was the result of something bigger, not the reason we didn’t work. Sometimes I think it would be easier if I had just walked in the house and found her in bed with a guy. That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn’t have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery.”
Nick also talked about Jessica’s father, Joe Simpson, saying:
“I don’t pretend to understand Joe. I don’t know if he ever liked me. To this day I couldn’t say. It was painful. Do I think Joe drove a rift between us? No. Was he an influence in our marriage? Absolutely.”
Would it be totally inappropriate if I claimed Jessica Simpson cheated on Nick Lachey with her father? I don’t have any sources or anything, but I do have a sneaking suspicion. And really, isn’t a sneaking suspicion just as good as any evidence obtained through thorough journalistic research?
