Jessica Simpson subtly addresses ex-husband Nick Lachey controversy

Jessica Simpson subtly addressed the ongoing discussion surrounding her ex-husband Nick Lachey and the perception of their marriage, as fans accused him of being the villain. In an interview with Bustle published on Thursday, the fashion designer shared her thoughts on the online conversation, hinting at her true feelings by saying, “It’s amazing what publicity can do.”

This nonchalant response seemingly conveyed a sense of detachment from the renewed scrutiny surrounding their relationship.

Fueling the conversation further, a clip from their early 2000s reality show, “Newlyweds,” resurfaced. In the scene, Lachey, who now co-hosts “Love Is Blind,” confronted Simpson about their home renovations and repeatedly referred to her as a “brat.” He added insult to injury by calling her a “spoiled brat” and a “bratty girl.”

However, Simpson, who gained fame with her hit song “Irresistible,” promptly defended herself, asserting, “I am not [a brat]. I’m a nice girl. I treat you very nice.” During that time, Simpson, now 42, faced criticism for her ditzy behavior, while Lachey, 49, was often portrayed as the trophy husband.

Interestingly, the “Newlyweds” reality series has experienced a resurgence in popularity among a new generation, leading to heightened scrutiny and criticism of Lachey, a former member of the boy band 98 Degrees.
