“So, Nick, you’re with another already?” Simpson, 40, wrote in a diary passage, referencing Lachey’s relationship with now-wife Vanessa Lacey, which came less than a year after the Simpson and her husband split in 2006. “Seems that you forgot the love you spoke to me.”
In Entertainment Tonight‘s preview of the new pages, Simpson added: “I’m saddened beyond belief. Alone in the dark, with no one to call my own.”
The Employee of the Month actress married the 98s Degrees singer, 47, in October 2002. They called it quits in November 2005 after three years of marriage and three seasons of starring on MTV’s Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.
Simpson previously opened up about the pair’s relationship in Open Book, which was released in February 2020, explaining that although she wanted their marriage to “look perfect” on TV, it was far from it.
