Rumour control: Jessica Simpson is not spitting tacks and packing a sad over her ex-hubby Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minnillo.
Lachey and long-term girlfriend Minnillo announced their engagement earlier this week.
Rumours soon surfaced that Simpson was supposedly “saddened” by the engagement news, and was struggling to come to terms with the prospect of Lachey finding love again.
Cobblers, says Simpson.
Speaking on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show, Simpson said: “I am extremely, extremely happy for him.
“I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and said that everyone was saying that I was ’saddened.’ I was just in complete shock. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick.”
She added: “Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa [Minnillo].
“I do, and I really wish them nothing but the best.”
