Rumors are catching fire that Nick Lachey and longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo are on a one way trip to splitsville. Lachey started dating Minnillo in 2006 after separating from then wife Jessica Simpson. There were rumblings after The National Enquirer reported that the couple allegedly were seen having a blowout before entering a LA restaurant last month. In April, Lachey’s representative told Us Magazine the account is “not true,” but tongues were wagging yesterday after Minnillo was spotted with a “mystery man” in NYC.
He looks as plastic as Nick and he’s confident enough to wear a pink shirt, so he might just have a chance with the brunette Barbie. Don’t go into mourning for the twosome quite yet, a source told Usmagazine.com, “They are 100 percent together and fine and in love.” The insider said the couple took a “romantic trip” to NYC last weekend. Nick was also pretty hardcore about denying break-up rumors about him and his ex-wife Simpson, so anything’s possible. [Photo: Splash News Online]
