Pop hunk Nick Lachey has been accused of cheating on his wife JESSICA SIMPSON by inviting a mystery blonde to his hotel room after Sunday's (06FEB05) Super Bowl.

The former 98 DEGREES heart-throb allegedly ordered his bodyguard to talk to the sexy woman on his behalf after she caught his attention at the ESPN Magazine's after-party, reports US newspaper the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.

The security man reportedly said, "You want to meet Nick because Nick certainly wants to meet you."

She agreed to speak to the married hunk, and his minder later gave her the singer's mobile phone number and instructed her to "call in 20 minutes and come over to the hotel".

However, the object of Lachey's desire reportedly refused his offer of a bed for the night, according to the New York newspaper.
