Jessica Simpson: Nick Lachey Marriage Was a “Money Mistake”

When asked about her “biggest money mistakes” during an appearance on CNBC’s Closing Bell, Jessica Simpson joked about her “first marriage,” to Nick Lachey. Her answer is interesting on numerous levels. First, when Jessica married Nick Lachey, he was the primary earner, having made a lot of money with 98 Degrees. As a result, her father encouraged her to forgo a pre-nup, with the obvious assumption that it wasn’t in her interest. She didn’t anticipate that the financials would quickly turn and that decision would later work against her. At the time, rumors circulated that Lachey was a gentleman in his departure, taking home less than $1.5 million. Judging by Jessica’s joke, those rumors might not have been accurate. Watch below.
