Jessica Simpson’s Rep: Gawker Story ‘Appalling’ And ‘Inaccurate’
December 4, 2004 – The New York Post got a response from Jessica Simpson’s rep after a report on Gawker.com prompted more speculation that her marriage to Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees was on the rocks. “Jessica and Nick arrived separately [to the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony] because she had to be there all day to rehearse her performances,” the rep insisted. “They left separately because Jessica had a commitment to appear at an event at MTV and they met up after that for dinner. As they have said themselves publicly, their marriage is not ‘on the rocks,’ and the ‘reports’ of any tension between them are completely inaccurate. It is appalling that someone would attribute that quote to Nick and we can assure you that is not something he did or would ever say about his wife.”
