The Open Book author continued, “The funny thing is that Nick wanted me to sign a prenup but I was so offended. I’m like, ‘But 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. This is never going to end,’ and we didn’t sign a prenup.”

In the fashion designer’s new memoir, she spoke fondly of her ex-husband whom she was with for seven years. “He knew me as this young, innocent 18-year-old that had never been introduced to the world in so many ways. I went straight from my father to him,” Jessica wrote. “Nick’s very smart. He was eight years older than me, but he was also young.”

She added, “We meant a lot to each other and we always will. I want to be very respectful because I married him for a reason, and we were together for seven years for a reason. He has a family now and I would never say anything to disrespect that.”
