Nick Lachey has brushed off rumours he and ex-wife Jessica Simpson are planning to reunite after the pair recently found themselves single - insisting they haven't spoken "in probably two years".
The ex couple, which became a pop culture phenomenon as a result of its hit reality TV show Newlyweds, divorced in 2006.
But Lachey insists it's pure coincidence he split from his girlfriend of three years, Vanessa Minnillo, just weeks before Simpson's American football star ex Tony Romo called off their 20-month relationship earlier this month (Jul09).
Lachey tells People.com, "I think it’s fun storytelling, but there's very little truth to any of it. I certainly have heard about her breakup and I wish her the best, as I’ve always done. Aside from that, there really is nothing to say.
"I haven't talked to her in probably two years. I wish her happiness. That’s where it pretty much ends."
