Simpson's anniversary hell
13:30 23 October 2006
Jessica Simpson knew her marriage was over on her third wedding anniversary.
The 'Employee of the Month' actress says she realised the relationship was doomed when her husband, Nick Lachey, decided not to accompany on her on a charity trip to Africa that coincided with their special day last October (05).
Jessica revealed to Jane magazine: "That trip changed my life. On that day, everything became so clear. I was in hospitals with all these sick kids.
"I just knew I needed to find something more in my life, on my own."
Jessica and Nick separated a month later and divorced in June this year.
Meanwhile, the former 98 Degrees frontman has been making bitchy comments about Jessica during concert performances.
A source said: "After he sang his new single 'I Can't Hate You Anymore' at Atlantic City's Borgata Hotel, he added in an aside to the audience, 'Well, maybe just a little'.
"Then after 'Do It for You' he said 'I did it for her, too, but she didn't give a damn'."
