Nicholas Scott Lachey is an American singer, actor, host, and television personality. He is widely known as the lead singer of the multi-platinum-selling pop and R&B vocal group, 98 Degrees. Lachey also became popular with the reality series Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica alongside his ex-wife, Jessica Simpson.
Lachey has a net worth of $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. His multimillion-dollar fortune can be credited to his nearly three-decades-long career in the entertainment industry.
Nick joined the pop band, 98 Degrees, with Jeff Timmons, Justin Jeffre, and Drew Lachey, in 1995. Their debut album, 98 Degrees, peaked at number 145 and number 88 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums respectively, selling over 500,000 copies in the United States alone.
The band's second album, 98 Degrees and Rising, sold over four million copies domestically and became their best-selling album. Likewise, the third album, This Christmas, sold more than 1 million copies. Their fourth album, Revelation, featured the hit single "Give Me Just One Night" which was one of the highest-charting singles.
The album itself debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and sold 276,343 copies in its first week, becoming their highest first-week sales on the Billboard 200. Following this, the band decided to take a break and Lachey released his solo debut album, SoulO, which sold 171,000 copies, making $175,000.
In addition, Lachey partly owns the Hollywood Fame, a team in the American Basketball Association, and was a part-owner of the Tacoma Rainiers. Nick and his wife bought a 7-bedroom home in Encino, California for $4.15 million after selling his previous home for under $4 million. Both listed their Encino home for $7 million in October 2019.
Lachey has been married to actress Vanessa Joy Minnillo since 2011. They exchanged their wedding vows in an intimate ceremony held at a private Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands on July 15, 2011.
Vanessa and Nick first met when she starred in his song "What's Left of Me" in 2006. After dating for a few years, they became engaged in November 2010.
Together, Minnillo and Lachey have three children: son Camden John Lachey, born on September 12, 2012, daughter Brooklyn Elisabeth Lachey, born on January 5, 2015, and son, Phoenix Robert Lachey, born on December 24, 2016.
Lachey first met Jessica Simpson in December 1998 via their shared manager at the Hollywood Christmas Parade in Los Angeles. Both subsequently began dating and became engaged in February 2002.
The duo tied the knot in a ceremony in Austin, Texas, on October 26, 2002. After staying together for three years, they announced their separation in November 2005. Simpson filed for divorce on December 16, 2005, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason.
Their divorce was finalized on June 30, 2006. At the time of their split, Jessica was reportedly worth an estimated $35 million, while Nick was worth around $5 million.
During the divorce settlement, Nich is said to have walked away with $10 million in assets, which included $2 million from the sale of their marital home, 1.5 percent of Simpson’s Dessert Beauty line, $2.2 million in securities accounts, and the $200k worth Ferrari he had received as a gift from Jessica while both were married.
Lachey is currently 47 years old. He was born on November 9, 1973, in Harlan, Kentucky, to Cathalyn Fopma and John Lachey.
