New York, Aug 30 : American pop singer Jessica Simpson has admitted that her divorce from ex-husband Nick Lachey was like "dealing with death" after it was made public.
She says that she was quite shaken when her marriage to Lachey came to an end, and that things further worsened when it all came under the scrutiny of the public.
"It's one thing to have your marriage fail, but then there's another thing to have the entire world watch your marriage fail. It's like dealing with a death," the New York Daily News quoted Simpson as revealing during an interview with People magazine.
Simpson, who is now seeing Dallas Cowboys football star Tony Romo, is not shy about expressing her feelings for him, and even calls him the "perfect guy".
She has even written a song about him called "You're My Sunday".
The singer says that she has had some relationships that she has not been so public about.
"I've had secret lovers. I can keep some things quiet," she said.
She also says that she has left the past behind, and in no way wants to have anything to do with it.
"I don't want anybody that's been in my life [before] in my life anymore," she said.
"I don't even want them to have any way of contacting me," she added.
