Jessica Simpson has reportedly hired a high-powered divorce attorney to handle her split with husband Nick Lachey—just three weeks after they announced their separation.
According to Us Weekly, the Newlyweds star has recruited Robert Kaufman, who represented Jennifer Aniston in her divorce from Brad Pitt earlier this year.
A representative for Simpson has refused to comment on the report, but a pal of the blonde beauty says, "Jennifer handled her divorce with Brad like a lady, in a non-sleazy way, and Jessica wants to do the same."
On Nov. 23, Simpson, 25, and Lachey, 32, announced their separation after three years of marriage.
Meanwhile, Simpson is wasting no time moving on after the break-up—she’s house-hunting in New York City.
The Dukes of Hazzard star has no plans to return to the couple's Calabasas, California, home, where Lachey is living alone.
And, according to Life & Style magazine, Simpson is keen to get as far away from her married life as possible.
