While Jessica Simpson is downright frazzled over rumors of a sex tape, her ex-husband seems to be taking it in stride.

Nick Lachey didn’t comment on the bare boning of the situation as he took pictures of himself as the new one-third owner of a minor league baseball team.

The pop singer was introduced yesterday with fellow co-owners and a plushie Moose named Rhubarb (in case you were wondering). No word on the whereabouts of Vanessa Minnillo.

“Baseball is a true passion of mine, Tacoma is a growing city and I have every intention of playing an active ownership role in the Rainiers as we continue to grow,” said Nick.

As active a role as he played in the supposed Jessica Simpson sex tape? We may never know … unless David Hans Schmidt works his immoral magic.
