Nick Lachey asks for Alimony - Page 2

post #31 of 47
Well, if Nick and Jessica are reading this, I am sorry for being a naughty gossip!
post #32 of 47
I heard he was cheating on her, and I heard she was cheating on him, specifically with Adam from Maroon 5. Saw pics of her going to his place after a party, and pics of her leaving in the morning, with the same pants and shoes, but in a man's button-down shirt. Hmm....
Anyways, I was somewhat addicted to the MTV show, and Nick was continually irritated with her. Her continual stupidity (which she claims was "played up for the cameras and in editing") appeared to drive him up the wall. I can imagine him cheating on her for someone with brains, and her cheating on him for someone who didn't care as long as...enough said.
But the whole alimony thing, no. If he can't make it in the music business, he needs to go get a regular job like everyone else and live in a $50,000 3 bedroom house like me!

As an attorney that does matrimonial law, I can say that the extremely short duration of the marriage weighs heavily against him getting much, for very long. Also, in some states the "marital fault" of the party seeking alimony, if that is the one that caused the break up, is ONE factor in determining alimony. Personally I have no idea who caused them to split. I'm not sure if Cali is such a state assuming that the divorce is pending there. Lastly, alimony is used when there is a huge disparity in earnings between 2 people, but mostly for the folks that earn $55,000. and $15,000 as a couple for example, not married multi- millionaires. Nick is well able to support himself in a very extravagant lifestyle, so Id be surprised to see him get much if any support.

Woopsie, that's what I meant!! I think in a situation where one party really needs it, then of course alimony should be paid. But in a situation where both parties can clearly stay on their feet financially without help from the other, then it should not be awarded or even considered!

I was actually upset they split up. I know they could be annoying but I thought they were cute. It just shows that the happiest of relationships can end in tears.
I have heard about 5 million (ok maybe I am exaggerating..) stories about why they split up and at the end of the day I don't believe any of them. They don't have to justify their actions, or share the truth with the public. I am sad for them though, and I hope things don't turn nasty because that would be a real shame.

Do you even think they took their marriage seriously?
Didnt seem like it on mtv..

Jessica Simpson really *P-O-ed* me off when I read that she said that she would never want to be like normal "boring housewives" having to cook and clean!! I also read that she said she can afford to buy the best meals and the best maids for her husband!! But ya know it's something I read ... sooooo.
I could sooo see her saying that though. She isn't the brightest crayon in the box!

And as far as the MTV show being a huge mistake, I agree! Who would want to start their marriage off that way. Though if everyone remembers correctly, neither Jessica or Nick were as famous as they are now and it is all because of that dumb show. So they made their beds.. let them sleep in it.

And as far as someones comment (I can't remember who, and I am too lazy to go back and read it all to figure out who) about just leaving them alone. That its bad enough they have to go through a divorce but they have to do it in front of the world... I am sure they knew what "famous life" was like before they got into it. They'll survive.

I miss nick and jess together They seemed so goofy. You know how if your parents divorce or the perfect couple friends of yours break up it makes you reevaluate your current relationship.. well, that's what freakin jess and nick did to me!! I was like.. Um, if they can't make it 5 yrs how will I? But I guess the famous stress thing would be enough to split anyone up.

I'm still upset about Sonny & Cher's divorce.

Ok here's question for you.... If it was Jessica asking for alimony from Nick would your opinion change?

I'd feel the same way. She doesn't need Alimony from him, any more than he needs it from her.

Not to mention the fact that they haven't been married long enough in the first place for either of them to have given up a career and earning ability because of the marriage. Alimony should only be if the wife or husband, after I think at least 10 years of marriage have given up his or her career to devote themselves to the marriage. In which case they would have a hard time earning a decent living after the divorce.

I don't care one way or the other. I did, however, read that it was Jessica's dad's idea to not have a prenup because he figured NICK would be earning more. Guess who would have benefited from a divorce in that situation? Of course, as it so happens, Jessica earned more, so guess who gets it now? Oops.

That being said, I really think that he does, in fact, deserve half of what she made during their marriage because their marriage was the main reason she's so famous today. If it weren't for Newlyweds, her earning power would be far less than it is. In that way, he contributed to her financial success.

I think the American Public deserves some alimony for having to listen to those two!

Of course he deserves half of what they earned while married, and vice versa. However, Alimony is something else, all together. It requires that she has to keep paying him a certain amount of money eavery month, long after they are no longer married, and it has nothing to do with what she earned while married to him.

Usually married people who can't possibly come close to living a remotely close lifestyle after the divorce get alimony. Like a wife for example who gave up her earning potential/schooling/job experine/ect, to stay home and take care of the home and kinds get alimony and are entitled to it. However, he is not entitled. He didn't give up ANYTHING to be married to her, nor have they been married for very long. He is also still able to bring home as much money as he was able to, before they were married, probably more.

Pretty shore that we don't have alimony in Australia just a split up of the assets and I do not think that they are 50/50 either.
We must get different magazines here as in our WD Nick doesn't want the ring back and he wants it to be amicable don't think that he should get any alimony but I don't agree that any one should have to pay it. If its over its over.

Oh, duh, I wasn't thinking. Yeah, after the 50/50 asset split, they should just each go their own ways. If anything, he has MORE earning power now than he did, though maybe not as much as she does.
