Why? Well, because Nick Lachey just doesn’t really even matter anymore—not that he really ever has, but … OK, let’s put it this way: Nick Lachey matters less today than he ever has before, does that sound good?
Anyway, the gist of the story is that Nick Lachey got into a shouting match with a guy at a San Diego Chargers game earlier this weekend, choked the guy when the guy didn’t succumb to the superior form that is Nick Lachey, and then called the guy’s wife a “f-cking bitch” because she made an awesome crack about Nick Lachey’s former boyband, 98 Degrees or whatever they were called. From TMZ:
Nick Lachey isn’t just a heckler … he CHOKED a San Diego Chargers fan at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday and called the guy’s wife a “f**king b*tch” … this according to multiple people involved in the incident … but Nick says it’s all BS.
TMZ has obtained new video … which shows Lachey getting aggressive with a Chargers fan who was wearing an Igor Olshansky #99 jersey (Igor played for SD from 2004 to 2008).
We spoke to the guy in the jersey … who tells us Lachey and his buddies — all die-hard Bengals fans — had been talking trash to him about the jersey for most of the 2nd half of the game.
The Chargers fan says Lachey made one particularly offensive comment about Olshansky that crossed the line … and that’s when the fan’s wife shot back to Nick, “Well, he lasted longer than your boy band.”
We’re told Lachey flipped out and called the wife a “f**king b*tch” … along with “a host of other profanities.”
Tensions exploded … and the Chargers fan says Nick lunged towards him … grabbed him by the throat and shoved him to the ground. The fight can be seen in the footage obtained by TMZ.
As we previously reported, stadium security quickly responded and ejected Nick and his buddies. The Chargers fans were NOT asked to leave.
After the incident, Nick went to Twitter and BRAGGED about the situation — saying, “Just got kicked out of the chargers stadium and couldn’t be prouder! Go Cincy Bengals.”
He later acknowledged the altercation … tweeting, “i simply don’t appreciate someone turning around and putting their finger in my face. call me crazy, but that deserved a reaction.”
We’re told the Chargers fan plans to file a police report against Lachey.
Nick’s rep tells TMZ, “This is a gross misrepresentation of what happened. It was nothing but a spirited debate between fans of opposing teams. At no point did Nick say anything derogatory to the man’s wife and anything to suggest the contrary is simply untrue.”
So hey, Nick Lachey is a big, stupid dickhead, and this is something that I knew and mentioned months ago, if not longer, but no. There were still some people around who thought this guy was a sweet-hearted, good-natured young man. And those who thought that, hey, guess what? You were wrong. This guy is a Dick with a capital D.
