Simpson Devastated By Lachey Tell-All
LATEST: JESSICA SIMPSON is devastated by a recent tell-all interview her estranged husband NICK LACHEY gave to Rolling Stone magazine, according to media reports in the US. In the interview Lachey revealed he still loved Simpson and was "blindsided" and "sucker-punched" by her decision to file for divorce. A source close to the blonde singer tells US publication People, "She was devastated, heartbroken. She didn't think he would do that." Friends gathered at Simpson's house the day the article hit newsstands to help console her and she even received a call from Lachey himself. A friend of Lachey's tells the magazine, "He wanted her to hear it from him. "He felt bad that she was upset, but Nick didn't apologise, because the things he said (in the article) only demonstrate that he loves her." Simpson's camp believes he is trying to use the publicity to promote his upcoming CD, WHAT'S LEFT OF ME, which is set for release 19 May (06). The Simpson source adds, "What really upset her was the timing. Nick waited until two weeks before his album debut to tell a reporter that he loved Jessica. That's not cool. "He keeps saying, 'I'm sorry I couldn't make her happy,' but he is not choosing to say why." Simpson has turned down offers to tell her side of the story and cancelled a Vanity Fair cover story after it became clear she would have to talk about the split for the story. The source adds, "She will not take the low road."
