Singers and reality TV stars Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey sympathise with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s recent split because they’ve also suffered under the media’s scrutiny. The pop couple allowed cameras to chart the ups and downs of their marriage for the MTV reality show, Newlyweds and subsequently became victims of the public’s obsession with their private life.
But they insist Brad and Jennifer could have saved their relationship if they’d accepted fame attracts gossip and media intrusion.Jessica Simpson explains, “Fame definitely puts pressure on a marriage. Especially when so many things are untrue, it really becomes an issue. But, you know, you learn early on in this business that with success, you’re fair game to that. And you just have to learn to really have tough skin and let it just roll right off. We’ve kind of put ourselves out there for that. But it’s always a difficult thing when you hear things that are being made up.”
