Nick first garnered recognition in the late 1990s as a member of the boy band 98 Degrees. Since then, he has engaged in a variety of undertakings.
Cathalyn and John Lackey welcomed their son Nicholas “Nick” Scott Lachey on November 9, 1973, in Harlan, Kentucky. His brother is the singer and actor Drew Lachey. Before continuing his education at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, he attended Cincinnati’s School of Creative and Performing Arts. He began classes at the University of Southern California in the fall of 1992.
Efforts in Music
Midway through the 1990s, Justin Jeffre and Lachey began performing at Kings Island, where Lachey began his career as a singer. For the formation of the boy band 98 Degrees, he and Jeffre joined forces with his brother Drew and Jeff Timmons. Paris D’Jon, a music executive, discovered the group and brought them to Motown Records.
Collectively, 98 Degrees published the albums “98 Degrees” (1997), “98 Degrees and Rising” (1998), “This Christmas” (1999), “Revelation” (2000), “2.0” (2013), and “Let It Snow” (2017). From 2003 to 2012, the group took a lengthy hiatus. nick lachey fortune
Lachey’s 2003 debut solo album “SoulO” was a commercial failure. His second album from 2006, What’s Left of Me, arrived at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and received substantially better reviews. It was certified Gold by the RIAA after selling over 500,000 copies in the United States. In June of 2010, he parted ways with Jive Records. Then, in 2013, Lachey released his third studio album, “A Father’s Lullaby,” and in 2014, he released “Soundtrack of My Life,” a compilation of his cover versions of songs from various film soundtracks.
Profession in Television
During the summer of 2003, Lachey co-starred with his then-wife Jessica Simpson in the MTV reality series “Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica.” Before its cancellation in March 2005, the series aired for three seasons and 41 episodes. The opening theme of the programme was Lachey’s “This I Swear.” The duo was featured in the 2004 television special “The Nick and Jessica Variety Hour.”
Lachey portrayed Leslie St. Clair during the seventh season of the WB drama “Charmed.” Additionally, he sang for Red Bedroom Productions in the popular television series “One Tree Hill.” Lachey returned to reality television in 2009 as the producer of the MTV musical reality series “Taking the Stage,” which tracked the lives of high school students at the School of Creative and Performing Arts.
Then, between 2009 and 2011, he hosted the first three seasons of NBC’s “The Sing-Off.” With his wife Vanessa, he has also hosted “Big Morning Buzz Live” on VH1, “America’s Most Musical Family” on Nickelodeon, and “Love is Blind” on Netflix. In addition, he appeared in the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2017 and the 2012 season of “Stars Earn Stripes” on NBC.
In addition to his musical and television abilities, Lachey is also well-known for being an avid sports fan. He was a member of the Tacoma Rainiers’ ownership group prior to being a co-owner of the American Basketball Association’s Hollywood Fame. In addition to performing the National Anthem at the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway in Sparta, Kentucky, the singer also threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the 2009 MLB Opening Day game in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Additionally, in 2015, a group of cannabis investors, including Lachey, placed a legalisation initiative for Ohio on the ballot. Even though he appeared in a television commercial promoting the initiative, it was unsuccessful.
In December 1998, Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s manager met for the first time at a holiday party. They began dating in January 1999, became engaged in February 2002, and were married on October 26, 2002 in Austin, Texas. The couple announced their separation in November 2005, and their divorce was finalised in June 2006, after months of tabloid speculation.
Simpson was reportedly required to pay Lachey $12 million in a divorce settlement because Lachey had not signed a prenuptial agreement. Nick ironically insisted that Jessica sign a prenuptial agreement prior to the wedding. She refused vehemently. nick lachey fortune
Vanessa Minnillo and Lachey began dating in 2006, following her performance in his “What’s Left of Me” music video. After a brief separation in 2009, which lasted only a few months, the couple reconciled in November 2010. They wed in 2011 and have three children together.
Nick and Jessica Simpson spent $1,685,000 in 2002 to acquire a home in Calabasas, California. This is the residence featured prominently on their reality television programme. Nick retained ownership of the home after the couple’s divorce. In August 2009, he sold the residence for $3,495,000.
In 2011, Nick and Vanessa paid $2.85 million for an 8134-square-foot home in Encino, California. In June of 2016, they sold the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home for $4 million. A few months after offering the property for sale, the couple purchased a larger (almost 10,000 square foot) Encino home for $4.15 million. This home was originally owned by late Mexican singer Jenni Rivera. In October of 2019, they will list this Encino home for $7 million. In December of 2020, they accepted $6,600,000.
Nick and Vanessa sold their home in Encino in the same month they paid $4.8 million for Randall Cobb’s property in neighbouring Tarzana, California. They sold it to tennis player Naomi Osaka in February 2022.
