In addition, she revealed in the memoir that she had an emotional relationship with Dukes of Hazzard co-star Johnny Knoxville, which she felt was “worse than a physical one.”
The star, who famously saved herself for marriage, wrote in the memoir, “After I actually had sex, I understood that the emotional part was what mattered. And Johnny and I had that, which seemed far more of a betrayal to my marriage than sex.”
It wasn’t long after the movie premiered that she and Nick went their separate ways, with the 98 Degrees singer taking half of Jessica’s income in the divorce settlement.
Jessica doesn’t necessarily regret the marriage, but she feels remorse about never signing a prenup. She reiterated this in an interview with Dr. Oz, explaining how she was “offended” when Nick first brought it up. She recalled, “I was like, ‘We’re going to be together for the rest of our lives. We’re saying our vows to God and in front of all of our family and friends. Like, this never gonna end.’ And, we didn’t sign a prenup.”
