Nick Lachey’s heartfelt ballad ‘What’s Left of Me’, recently released on AOL, provides insight into some the pain the singer felt after his split with wife Jessica Simpson.
Inspired to write, while wearing an unbuttoned white linen shirt and sitting in front of a fan, Nick sings about watching "life pass me by in the rear-view mirror."
Sources believe the rear-view mirror in question, once owned by rocker Meatloaf, was at the heart of the split. "It only reflects memories, not cars. Jessica didn’t think it was safe for him to drive, but Nick loved looking into it for inspiration" says a close friend.
Now that Lachey has put his pain to words, he’s next plans to put it to video.

Female First is reporting that a Jennifer Aniston fan attacked Brangelina outside a restaurant in Germany:
The loved-up pair – who are expecting their first child together this year – were dining at Berlin’s Nola restaurant when a woman stormed in and screamed: "Where is that home-wrecking Angelina?" The crazed fan – dressed in a ‘Friends’ T-shirt – spotted the Hollywood couple and attempted to slap Angelina.
The fan gave the name â€œAnnifer Jenistonâ€ to the police, but they think it might be an alias.
Actress Heather Locklear filed for divorce from husband of 11 years, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. While Sambora was able to vocally support bandmate John Bon Jovi on such rebel tunes like ‘Have a Nice Day,’ he reportedly couldn’t support his wife with the same conviction.
Sources speculate, that while Sambora remained humble during his stint in Bon Jovi, the success of his 2004 side project Shark Frenzy changed everything.
Says a source close to the couple, "After Shark Frezy Volume 1 came out, Richie got a really big head. By Shark Frenzy Volume 2, their marraige was over."
