“I’ll be honest, I obviously haven’t read the book, so I don’t know what she said or what she revealed there, but I’m certainly happy for her and her life, I know she is happy for us,” he replied.

Weeks prior, Simpson told PEOPLE that she very much respects Lachey’s new life and family. She also recognized that they will always mean a lot to each other, as they were together for seven years and were each other’s first real loves.

“There’s definitely a mutual respect there, so that’s, you know — obviously it was a long time ago; we’ve all moved on,” Lachey continued. readers know that in her book, among other things, Simpson talks in great details about the demise of her marriage to Lachey, the fakery that went on in their reality TV show Newlyweds, and the jealously and cheating that rocked their relationship. She admits to accusing him of having a wondering eye and eventually being unfaithful to him by falling for another man.
