Jessica Simpson and Nick LacheyNick Lachey is reportedly trying to rush through his divorce from Jessica Simpson because he needs the money from the settlement.

Nick needs extra cash for his Bel Air mansion and to complete a $2million home he’s building in Las Vegas and is apparently willing to agree to a $5million settlement from his ex-wife, although he is entitled to more.

Jessica, however, is not planning on rushing it through just to help him out. A close source has revealed: “[Jessica] knows that some lawsuits filed against her could prove to be a problem.”

“Jessica doesn’t want to leave Nick high and dry, but this is about business, not love. She isn’t concerned if he’s in a cash crunch or if the divorce takes all year.”
