Nick Lachey Weighs In on Jessica Simpson Slams

Matt Donnelly / January 30, 2009

As the defense keeps rolling in for increasingly buxom blonde Jessica Simpson, a voice from her past has shown up to support.

“I wish her nothing but the best and I hope she’s happy—whatever size that comes in,” Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey tells Extra.

Interviewing in Tampa where the singer is on hand Superbowl festivities, Lachey expressed his confusion over the denim scandal.

“I can’t believe it’s this big of a story and people are making such a huge deal about it. I’m never ceased to be amazed by people’s reactions to things,” the singer said.

Lachey, 35, has been dating True Beauty host Vanessa Minnillo for over two years.

He’s currently prepping to release his third solo album, Coming Up for Air.
