In Touch magazine reports that when Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson visited Miami earlier this month, the couple got in a dramatic fight that prompted the 98 Degrees singer to fly back home to Los Angeles with the USC Trojans after their big Orange Bowl win. “I’d never seen them that bad,” a friend revealed. “I don’t know how much longer it will last.” Another added, “Let’s just say the year didn’t start out right for the two of them.” The argument was prompted by Jessica being upset after her sister Ashlee Simpson was booed during her halftime performance, but Nick wanted to celebrate because he favorite team had just won the national title game. “He kept telling her, ‘It’s all about you all the time,” a source said. “Tonight, it’s about me.”
