Nick Lachey Early Life
Nick Scott Lachey was born on November 9, 1973, in Harlan, Kentucky, to Cathalyn and John Lackey. He is the son of Cathalyn and John Lackey.
Drew Lachey, a fellow singer and actor, is Nick Lachey's brother. He had his early schooling at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio, before going on to complete his studies at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he graduated in 2011. Later, in the fall of 1992, he began his studies at the University of Southern California.
Nick Lachey Music Career
Lachey began his singing career in the mid-1990s, when he joined his friend Justin Jeffre on stage at Kings Island amusement park in Orlando, Florida. As a result of their collaboration, he and Jeffre were joined by his brother Drew and fourth member Jeff Timmons, to form the boy band 98 Degrees.
It was through the efforts of music manager Paris D'Jon that they were discovered and signed to Motown Records. The albums “98 Degrees” (1997), “98 Degrees and Rising” (1998), “This Christmas” (1999), “Revelation” (2000), “2.0” (2013), and “Let It Snow” (2014) were all issued by the band as a collective effort (2017). From 2003 through 2012, the ensemble was on a long sabbatical from performing.
Lachey's solo debut album, “SoulO,” was a commercial disaster when it was released in 2003. His second studio album, “What's Left of Me,” (2006), garnered a significantly more positive reception and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart in its first week of release. The Recording Industry Association of America awarded it Gold certification after it sold more than 500,000 copies in the United States.
In June 2010, he announced his departure from Jive Records. Following that, he released his third studio album, “A Father's Lullaby,” in 2013, which was followed by “Soundtrack of My Life,” which consisted of cover versions of songs that had been on various movie soundtracks.
Nick Lachey Tv Career
The MTV reality show “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica” featured Lachey and his then-wife, Jessica Simpson, and aired during the summer of 2003. In total, 41 episodes were shown throughout three seasons, culminating in a season finale airing in March of 2005. As the show's opening theme, the song “This I Swear” by Nick Lachey was played. In addition, the couple appeared in the 2004 television special “The Nick and Jessica Variety Hour” as themselves.
Lachey appeared as Leslie St. Clair in the seventh season of the WB drama “Charmed,” which aired on the network. In addition, he starred as a singer for Red Bedroom Productions in the popular television series “One Tree Hill.” He returned to the field of reality television in 2009 as the producer of “Taking the Stage,” an MTV musical reality show that captured the lives of high school students at the School for Creative and Performing Arts in Los Angeles.
Then, from 2009 to 2011, he served as the host of the NBC singing competition show “The Sing-Off” for its first three seasons. The VH1 show “Big Morning Buzz Live,” the Nickelodeon show “America's Most Musical Family,” and the Netflix reality show “Love is Blind” are among the other series he has presented with his wife Vanessa. Also in 2012, he competed on the NBC celebrity reality competition series “Stars Earn Stripes,” as well as on the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars.” In 2017, he competed on the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Nick Lachey Other Ventures
Besides his talents in music and television, Lachey is well-known as a sports aficionado who follows a variety of teams. He is a part owner of the Hollywood Fame, an American Basketball Association team, and he has also been a member of the Tacoma Rainiers' ownership group in previous years.
His association with sports continued in 2009, when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Major League Baseball Opening Day game in Cincinnati, Ohio, and in 2011, when he sang the National Anthem at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky, both of which took place in the state of Kentucky.
Lachey was also a member of a group of cannabis investors who successfully placed a marijuana legalisation proposal on the ballot in the state of Ohio back in 2015. He even made an appearance in a television commercial in support of the campaign, but it was ultimately defeated.
Nick Lachey Personal Life
Lachey met pop singer Jessica Simpson through their common manager at a Christmas gathering in December 1998. The two became fast friends. When they first started dating in January 1999, they were engaged in February 2002, and they were married on October 26, 2002, in Austin, Texas. Following months of conjecture in various tabloids, the couple declared their separation in November 2005, and their divorce was formalised in June 2006, according to court records.
Because Simpson and Lachey did not have a pre-nuptial agreement, she was reportedly forced to pay Lachey $12 million in the course of the couple's divorce. Ironically, Nick had requested Jessica's signature on a pre-nuptial agreement before the wedding. She resisted with a vengeance.
The next year, Lachey began dating Vanessa Minnillo, who had previously appeared in his music video for “What's Left of Me.” Following a brief separation in 2009 that lasted barely a few months, the pair announced their engagement in November 2010. Together, they have three children since their marriage in 2011.
Nick Lachey Property
During the second quarter of 2002, Nick and Jessica Simpson purchased a home in Calabasas, California, for $1.685 million. This is the house that was prominently displayed in their reality television show. Nick was the major owner of the home, and he continued to live there after the divorce. In August 2009, he sold the house for a total of $3.495 million.
An 8,134 square foot mansion in Encino, California, was purchased for $2.85 million by Nick and his wife Vanessa in 2011. It was sold for $4 million in June 2016 to a couple who had six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. A few months after putting the house on the market, the couple purchased a larger (almost 10,000 square foot) Encino home for $4.15 million, which they had previously rented. Jenni Rivera, a late Mexican singer, used to live at this house before she passed away. They advertised this Encino residence for $7 million in October of this year. In December 2020, they accepted a check for $6.6 million.
