Jessica Simpson And Nick Lachey Secretly “Reuniting”? (EXCLUSIVE)
According to the National Enquirer, Simpson and ex-husband Lachey “have reconnected, and pals said their phone calls are becoming more regular — and longer!” A so-called “source” claims, “Jessica and Nick have always checked in on each other, but became closer last October.”
Of course, the supermarket tabloid doesn’t say what supposedly happened last fall to bring them back together. Nor does the outlet give an explanation for why this is first being reported now in January. Nevertheless, the National Enquirer claims Simpson and Lachey’s respective partners, Eric Johnson and Vanessa Minillo, “would freak out if they knew how many phone calls have been exchanged!”
But if it seems like this piece is nothing more than wishful thinking by some “Newlyweds” fans, that’s because it’s pure tabloid fantasy. Gossip Cop has learned that Simpson and Lachey are actually not in touch at all, never mind having illicit phone calls that are now being leaked to the press. A rep for Simpson even exclusively tells us that the tabloid tale isn’t “true on any level.” Sorry, shippers.
