Access Hollywood reports Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey never signed a prenuptial agreement, a move that may cost the blonde starlet millions.
According to Access and TMZ.com, Lachey had the papers drawn up by a lawyer before the pair wed in 2002, when he was the more popular of the celeb duo.
But Simpson allegedly refused to sign the documents.
Now, Simpson is worth millions, unlike Lachey.
Several publications put the couple's joint worth at $50 million, and under California law, Lachey would be entitled to half of whatever the couple made after their marriage, unless they reach a settlement.
Lachey's worth was estimated at $5 million, in a Boston Herald report.
US Weekly also now reports that celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser will represent either Nick or Jessica.
