Simpson's Lachey misery
09:30 01 May 2006
Jessica Simpson has been left "devastated" by her estranged husband's decision to tell the world about their failed relationship.
Nick Lachey recently told a US magazine that he felt "blindsided" and "sucker punched" after she told him she was filing for divorce last December (05).
Friends of the singer-turned-actress told America's People magazine: "She was devastated, heartbroken.
"She didn't think he would do that."
Sources claim what upset her most of all was the timing of his decision to spill the beans.
They revealed: "Nick waited until two weeks before for his new album, 'What's Left Of Me', to debut to tell a reporter that he loved Jessica. That's not cool.
"He keeps saying, 'I'm sorry I couldn't make her happy', but he is not choosing to say why."
Lachey recently revealed he wished he had walked in on his estranged wife in bed with another man - because it would have made their split easier.
He said: "That would be clear-cut. End of story. I wouldn't have to deal with the uncertainty of adultery."
Nick, who shot to fame on MTV show 'Newlyweds', also criticised the series for coming between him and Jessica.
He revealed: "It became a really blurred line. There was a question about what truly was our reality."
