It was rumored that once Jessica Simpson heard the news of Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minnillo, she became obsessed in finding out every last detail. She even had a friend of hers setup a Google Alert just so she wouldn’t miss out on any of the juicy gossip.
Now, she has released an official statement, and she couldn’t be happier for the happy couple. She went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to dispel the rumors that she was saddened by the news of their engagement.
She said, “I am extremely, extremely happy for him. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick. I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying I was ‘saddened’. And I was just in complete shock.”
She added, “You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago, so it would be nice if everybody could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do, and I wish him nothing but the best.”
Do you believe her?
