Biography

As one of four singers in the multi-platinum selling pop band, 98 Degrees, and the husband of bubbly pop diva Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey enjoyed something of a charmed life. In the late-1990s era of the "boy band," 98 Degrees was unique in that they formed themselves, as opposed to being assembled and promoted by a producer or record label. Lachey and company enjoyed substantial success with their debut single "Invisible Man" and continued the trend with chart-topping albums like 98 Degrees and Rising in 1998. Within a few short years, however, the band went on hiatus after being eclipsed by fellow teen idols the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. It was at that time that Lachey's career took an unexpected, but highly profitable turn with his marriage to fellow pop star, Jessica Simpson. A year after their wedding, the celebrity couple appeared in their own reality series "Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica" (MTV, 2003-05). The show became an unexpected hit and spawned a number of spin-off variety specials for the high-profile pair, such as "Nick & Jessica's Family Christmas" (ABC, 2004). As their popularity grew - especially Simpson and her dimwitted persona - the rumor mill also went into high gear, speculating on the shaky state of their union. Despite their earlier claims to the contrary, the predictions proved true when the couple separated in the fall of 2005. Lachey went on to release his third post-98 Degrees solo album, What's Left of Me, appeared briefly in small film projects like the vampire film "Rise: Blood Hunter" (2007), and hosted a music competition, "The Sing Off" (NBC, 2009- ). In 2010 Lachey announced his engagement to long-time girlfriend, Vanessa Minnillo, leading many fans to hope that the onetime heartbroken hunk had finally found longtime happiness in his personal life and continued success in his professional endeavors.
