The former Mr. Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, and girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo have split up, according to reports. They'd been together almost three years.
"It was an amicable break-up. They walk away from it still friends," says a source quoted by Us Weekly who is reportedly close to the hot couple.
Adds another source to the same celebrity gossip tabloid, "They still care about each other very much. This is what's best for both of them."
The couple hooked up in 2006 - the year after Lachey split from Jessica Simpson. In 2007, Minnillo said she wanted to have kids with Lachey.
They always seemed like such a nice couple and we are sad they broke up. Poor Nick. Maybe he can reunite with Jessica on her new reality show.
