May 4, 2001 - Jessica Simpson
issued a statement today on JessicaCentral.com regarding her relationship
with Nick Lachey; "Tonight I want to address some of the rumors you've
been hearing. Nick and I are very much in love. He is my whole world. As
of right now, I've seen him twice in the last three months. This isn't
fair for any relationship! I know that love is stronger than time a part,
but right now we are going to use use this time to focus on our spiritual
and emotional growth independently. Right now my main focus is my career.
I pray that each of you will support this decision and trust us in God's
hands." The key word in the carefully crafted message presumably written
by a publicist after approval from both her and 98 Degree's management
is "independently." The breakup may add credibility to an earlier account
on our forum from user 'asmodeus' stating that Nick and one of the blonde
female dancers in 98 Degrees were alledgedly spotted "all over each other"
where the girl alledgedly told Nick "she would be waiting for him in the
room" at the San Jose Hyatt Hotel before the Z95.7 Jingle Ball 2000 show
on December 2nd.
