The End of an Era
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson are officially over. Their divorce was finalized today and Jessica has returned to just Jessica Simpson instead of Jessica Simpson Lachey.
On Thursday, documents were released in which the former couple asked that retired Superior Court Judge Dana Senit Henry be appointed "for the sole purpose of" ending their marriage. They asked the judge to "bifurcate" the case, meaning to make the divorce official without settling all the financial details.
In fact, money has been a sticking point between the couple. Soon after Simpson filed for divorce last December, Lachey specified that he reserved the right to ask for spousal support, though in a published interview he denied that he planned to ask for alimony.
The end of Simpson and Lachey's marriage concludes the dramatic final chapter in the relationship of the couple who married in 2002 and then starred together in the MTV reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica, which chronicled their early, happier days together.
So how much dough did he get? He honestly should get like 90% for putting up with her. Damn, give him everything. She only needs Ken Paves, bleach and bronzer.
