Jessica Simpson Reacts to Nick Lachey’s Engagement

Our cute, bubbly and sometimes ditzy Jessica Simpson is all grown up now.

After reading this story you will ask yourself: "Is this really the same Jessica who thought Chicken of the Sea tuna was really chicken?"

Star magazine claims in their November 22 issue that the singer was "really crushed" after learning her ex-husband, Nick Lachey, was engaged to TV host Vanessa Minillo. PopEater's Rob Shuter also contributed his two cents, adding that Simpson was saddened by the news.

"Even though Jessica wants to be happy for Nick, this is a very difficult time for her," a friend of Simpson's tells Shuter. "Nick was the love of her life then ... and he was her first, so she will always have a very special place in her heart for him. She's deeply saddened."

Thursday morning, Simpson set the record straight during an appearance on KIIS-FM's On The Air With Ryan Seacrest.

"I'm extremely, extremely happy for him," she told Seacrest. "I don't know where all those rumors came from. My mom actually called me and told me that everybody was saying that I was saddened.

"I was in complete shock. I couldn't be more happy for Nick. You know, our relationship was over a really long time ago. It'd be nice if everyone could move on with us and really celebrate the love between him and Vanessa. I do. And I wish them nothing but the best."

Ahh yes, Jessica Simpson has grown up. It looks like Star and Rob Shuter are both wrong again!
