Rumors quickly circulated that she was “flipping out” when ex husband Nick Lachey proposed to fiancée Vanessa Minnillo last week, but Jessica Simpson recently cleared the air on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show.
On Thursday morning (November 11), the “Come On Over” singer explained, “I am extremely, extremely happy for him.”
She added, “I don’t know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and said that everyone was saying that I was ‘saddened.’ I was just in complete shock. I couldn’t be more happy for Nick.”
“Our relationship was over a really long time ago, and it would be nice if everyone could move on with us and really just celebrate the love between him and Vanessa [Minnillo],” she went on. “I do, and I really wish them nothing but the best.”
Bringing an end to the weekend, Jessica Simpson and boyfriend Eric Johnson were spotted side-by-side at Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C. on Sunday (November 7).
The couple lovingly held hands and laughed with one other after spending the weekend in the nation’s capital.
Meanwhile, Jess was recently announced as one of the performers slated to take the stage at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade later this month.
Joining the likes of Kanye West, Arlo Guthrie and Gladys Knight, parade spokesman Orlando Veras said, “We want to make sure we are capturing people who are in the zeitgeist.”
