Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s respective careers may be causing some newlywed tension, according to Extra. The TV entertainment news show reports that as Simpson’s career has been skyrocketing lately, her husband has become, quote, “the man in her shadow.” Last week on the couple’s MTV reality show, Lachey was upset about his wife’s bigger role on a VH-1 skit. In addition, his contribution to their public service announcement was all but cut from the final product.
The latest issue of Us magazine reports that the couple may be headed for tough times. The magazine’s cover story on Simpson and Lachey mentions that when Nick and Jessica arrived at the recent Golden Globe awards, photographers asked Nick to move aside so they could photograph Jessica. Also, at last week’s pre-Grammy party, Simpson received all of the attention, according to the magazine.
Simpson will be performing solo on CBS’s Late Show With David Letterman on March 2.
