Lachey started his singing career in the mid-1990s when he started singing at Kings Island with his friend Justin Jeffre. He and Jeffre then joined forces with his brother Drew, and fourth member Jeff Timmons, to form the boy band 98 Degrees.
Music manager Paris D’Jon discovered them, and they signed to Motown Records. Together, 98 Degrees released the albums “98 Degrees”, “98 Degrees and Rising”, “This Christmas”, “Revelation”, “2.0”, and “Let It Snow”. The group went on an extended hiatus from 2003 to 2012.
Lachey’s solo debut album, “SoulO,” was a commercial failure. His second album, “What’s Left of Me” (2006), was much better received and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
After selling more than 500,00 copies in the US, it was certified Gold by the RIAA. He left Jive Records in June 2010. He subsequently released his third album, “A Father’s Lullaby” (2013), followed by “Soundtrack of My Life” (2014), an album consisting of Lachey’s cover versions of songs that were featured on various movie soundtracks.

Nick Lachey Divorce Settlement with Jessica Simpson:
A young Lachey was introduced to pop singer Jessica Simpson by their shared manager at a Christmas event in December 1998.
They started dating in January 1999, got engaged in February 2002, and married on October 26, 2002, in Austin, Texas. After months of speculation in various tabloids, the couple announced their separation in November 2005 and finalized their divorced in June 2006.
Because Simpson had not signed a pre-nuptial agreement, she reportedly had to pay Lachey $12 million in their divorce. Ironically, Nick had asked Jessica to sign a prenup before the marriage, and she angrily refused.
Lachey began dating Vanessa Minnillo in 2006 after she starred in his “What’s Left of Me” music video.
After a brief break-up in 2009 that only lasted a few months, the couple became engaged in November 2010. They married in 2011, and they had three children together.
In 2016 Nick and Vanessa paid $4.15 million for a 7-bedroom home in Encino, California. He sold his longtime previous home for just under $4 million a month earlier.
They listed their Encino home in October 2019 for $7 million. Their home was previously owned by the late Mexican singer Jenni Rivera.
