Let the divorce proceedings begin! Who do you think will be the first to pull a Brad and Angelina (date but won’t confirm they’re dating)?
Jessica Simpson has filed for divorce from Nick Lachey in Los Angeles Superior Court, PEOPLE has learned.
The singer cited “irreconcilable differences” and requested that her last name be officially changed back to Simpson.
She also asked that the court not award spousal support.
Lachey, who has hired Los Angeles-based attorney Laura Wasser, was not surprised by the filing, a source close to him tells PEOPLE.
“He was hoping for the best, but as time went by, he was prepared for what became inevitable,” says the source. “(He and Jessica Simpson) hadn’t spoken in a couple weeks. I think they have spoken about the actual serving of papers.”
