Vanessa Lachey admitted she’s still holding a grudge after she wasn’t paid to be in her now-husband Nick’s music video in 2006. The former TRL host starred as the singer’s on-camera love interest for “What’s Left Of Me,” which was written about his split from his first wife, Jessica Simpson.

Nick’s music video starring Vanessa as his love interest premiered in April 2006 on MTV just a year after him and Jessica, 39, split. The song detailed his heartbreak about that relationship ending. Two months after the video debut, Nick and Jessica finalized their divorce.

Jessica revealed in her new memoir Open Book that once she saw the music video, she was upset. “I just wanted to know what he thought of me now, because at that point I had no idea,” she wrote. “I watched him portray himself as a victim, casting me as this selfish person. I knew he did this to hurt me.”

The fashion designer confessed that she asked Nick to come over to talk about their emotions and although she was angry she slept with him. “He didn’t stay the night. I was relieved because I could feel his hate. The whole situation was very dark,” she wrote in her memoir. “When he walked out the door, I knew I would never see him again.”

Jessica references her relationship with Nick several times within her new memoir. Despite the mention, the “What’s Left Of Me” singer admitted he hasn’t read it nor has Vanessa. “Well, no, I have not read a single word,” he told Us Weekly on February 1. “Both of us have not read the book, and no, she did not reach out before it was published.”
