Jessica and Nick

Divorce Final

6/30/2006 5:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Jessica & NickTMZ has obtained court documents that seal the deal on Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey's divorce.

The papers, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, officially end their three-and-a-half year marriage.

As TMZ first reported, Jessica and Nick agreed to end the marriage immediately, but deal with their financial dispute at a later date.

Sources tell us that Jessica has offered Nick $1.5 million to walk away from the marriage, even though under California law Nick would be entitled to half the fortune the couple amassed during their marriage.

Yay for Nick - he may have loved her, but her father made their relationship a publicity scam and money maker. I always felt bad for him when I watched their reality TV show.

Good luck Nick. As for Jessica - snore.

Oh C'mon people... SHE is SO FAKE! I mean, fake boobs, fake blonde, fake teeth, fake tan... and can she sing... ummmmm...NO!! Can she act....ummmmmmm...NO!!
Really, I don't know how Nick put up with her for as long as he did... She is a puppet, being played by her daddy... and her little sister, who is just as talent-less is riding along the "simpson express"... wonder where they'll end up???
Well, it just goes to show you that the world LOVES a fake blonde (Britney, Christina, Lindsey, Paris, Jessica, Ashlee) who can't sing (Again, insert the previous list... and add a few I'm sure)... If these girls didn't have the boobs, the bods and etc... they'd be working at Mickey D's... and probably getting your order wrong...
So, nuff already with all the little talentless princesses who don't know what it's like to work a real day of work... and think that "reality" is living in a huge mansion, with Louis V purses, luggage, dog collar etc. etc. etc. THAT is not reality Jess... that's your world... and it's a sad one!

I'm excited to see how well Nick will do without Jessica--He will do great and Jessica on the other hand will fade away into obscurity--too young and stupid and such a daddy's little girl to think for herself and realize what a good man she had. When her looks fade and no one remembers her and her Daisy Dukes she will think about what a mistake she made. There are not a lot of guys like Nick around anymore and he seems like a genuine prince.

I feel bad for both of them, they came across to me as the "normal" couple of Hollywood. (In pulic) i had never seen or heard them "Bashing" each other,(for once). i hope they both find happiness again.

If anyone, he's the sleaze. Who said he wanted a lot of money? Who did the interviews whining? Who released a SONG for gosh sake, about how he was suffering? Who has maintained quiet dignity? Jess, that's who. And as to the comment about her "fakeness," Just about every celebrity has had some kind of work done. How about you? Dye your hair? Get your teeth whitened? So I guess you're a fake, too, huh?

I think that if they had been a normal couple outside of the Hollywood glare...they might've been fine. Also if she grew a backbone and told her dad to step off....how can you allow your father to disrespect your husband so openly and consistantly ?? The irony is her father preaches all that down home Christian... daughter of a preacher B/S but I dont think that girl could've possibly picked up a Bible in this whole relationship or none of this mess would be happening.

Its obvious that her father never supported her marraige. It's seems as though he was counting the days until he was the main man in Jessica's life again. I really believe that it was her father who encouraged her to file for divorce so quickly following their seperation. I just find it hard to understand how Nick could pour his heart out to her and the world about his love and willingness to make their marriage work and it did not strike a nerve in Jessica. Unless of course your beloved father is telling you to stay steadfast on the course of divorce b/c it's "for the best".

Are you people crazy? Its a freakin divorce yet you guys are having a party and picking sides. I mean get a life. You dont know Jessica or Nick. Just cause you see them on TV and hear gossip doesnt mean its true. Who knows why they really split up. Who knows if Nick is lying or if Jessica is. Someone always wants to pick a saint. People got hurt, famous or not its still sad. Would you want people to start talking crap if you went through a divorce? OMG LIKE JESSICA IS A SLUT!!! Do you know that for a fact? Who are you god now? OMG NICK IS A DOG!!! Do you know that? Please just shut up and get a life. Its really sad that some of you take time out of your day to write such crappy things about someone you dont even know. I hope Karma is real and all of you get slapped right back.

Divorce is never easy. I wish them both the best. They are very young. I'm sure they will both look back on their marriage and wonder how they let outside influences cause them to doubt. Who knows, they may find each other again in the future.

NICK DESERVES EVERY PENNY HE CAN GET OUT OF HER. IF HE DOESN'T GET IT, HER DAD WILL. IT'S A SHAME LITTLE MISS JESS CAN'T SEE WHAT HER "FATHER" IS DOING TO HER. YES, NICK DOES NEED SOMEONE TO LOVE HIM AND HAVE A FAMILY WITH HIM. LIKE WE SAY HERE IN THE SOUTH "THERE'S MORE FISH IN THE SEA". SHE AIN'T WORHT IT. I DON'T FEEL SORRY FOR HER AT ALL.

why do people care so much about nick and jessica? he's nice looking and so is she but there are millions of people out there who look just like them so who really cares..the only reason she acts the way she does now is because she thinks she is so great and guess what..we are the ones who put that into her head and now she thinks she is going to get someone better than nick to put up with her crap.please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica will be soooo sorry one day because she let the best thing in her life go. I just think it is funny - her father did not want her to sign a pre-nup because he made more money and now the shoe is on the other foot. Now I am sure daddy is having a fit because she stands to loose a ton of money that he thinks belongs to him. Her father is a real slime bucket. She has been linked to some real woofers. Come on leave Nick Lachey for Johnny Knoxville and Bam Margera. Frankly they are pretty gross. Aside from Nick she has horrible taste in men. Just like her mother.
