Nick Lachey

Kicked Out of NFL Game

for Talking Smack [Update]

Exclusive Video

2:15 PM PT --
Lachey has issued a statement about the situation on Twitter ... saying, "For the record, i was not kicked out of the chargers game for excessive 'trash talking'. no, that honor belonged to the guy in front of me!"

He added, "i simply don't appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction."

Lachey also praised Chargers fans ... saying, "aside from a few exceptions, i had a great time hanging with Charger fans all afternoon. honestly, some of the nicest fans around." 

Nick Lachey -- a HUGE Cincinnati Bengals fan -- was escorted out of the stands at the San Diego Chargers football game this weekend ... after security decided his TRASH TALK crossed the line.

It's unclear exactly what Nick said to piss off stadium security ... but after he was ejected, the former boy-bander actually BRAGGED about getting the boot, tweeting:

"Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn't be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals"

A short time later, AFTER Cincy defeated the crappy Chargers, Lachey tweeted again:

"Bengals win again. i'd talk trash to everyone in SD, but what's the point? you already had me kicked out of the stadium and you still lost."


As for the kid in the Chargers gear in the photo with Nick, he was just a random fan -- and after the game, the kid's dad fired off a tweet to Lachey:

"Thanks for taking the pic with my son and being cool to us. Congrats on the Bengals win!"

FYI -- you can probably expect MORE trash talk from Lachey this season, his Bengals are 7-5 and are tied with Pittsburgh in the race for the 2nd Wild Card playoff spot in the AFC.

Charger fans are on edge as usual right now, so they escorted Nick out for his own safety. Charger fans think everyone else is the problem, and that they are perfect angels, when in reality they are half the problem.

She's baaaack    

I couldn't hear a thing. Did anyone tell him it was only a football game, not the freaking Roman colisseum? I don't watch much football but just for that I hope his team gets their asses kicked in every game they play this year.

"7-5 and are tied with Pittsburgh in the race for the 2nd Wild Card playoff spot in the AFC."

7-5 , ONE GAME over .500 and TIED for the LAST wildcard spot really ISN'T something to be really "proud of" especially with a mature experienced team. Even the colts with rooky QB and 8 other rookies in the starting line up are 8-4. Near as I can remember the bungles had 3 dewcent years out of the last 20. The're only claim to fame is having the "all felony" team for 4 years running.

So why the **** is the boy's face blurred out? He's a real cutie-pie, as can be seen in his dad's tweet: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A9KafbqCMAA5MLD.jpg:large
Please don't blur out cute boys' faces.

So why the **** is the boy's face blurred out of the picture? I had to rely on a fellow boylover to see what a cutie-pie he is: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A9KafbqCMAA5MLD.jpg:large
Please don't blur out cute boys' faces. There's no need for it; it's utter bull****.

there is nothing like a out of control ego. It's so impressive to see a man so in control of his emotions. He must be proud to know that acting like a idiot would give him more press then his celebrity. Jessica can rest assured knowing their breakup was for the best. Move along now.
