Despite her husband's heartfelt plea that she give their marriage another try, Jessica Simpson filed for divorce from Nick Lachey on Dec. 16, ending the couple's three-year run as America's sweethearts. So imagine Nick's surprise when he got that first late-night call from his soon-to-be ex. "He must have been shocked to hear from her," says a source close to the couple.The insider claims that during the call Jessica talked in a baby voice, saying things like "Whatcha doing? Where are you?" and "I miss you, sweetie." Adds a source close to Jessica, 25: "I hear she's called Nick several times, and each time she's been very emotional. Maybe after she's had a few glasses of wine, she gets the desire to phone and pour her heart out. I don't think she's over him yet. She's very confused and just can't let go."Considering the finality of their last conversation on Dec. 15 — as Star reported, Lachey made a last-minute attempt to reconcile only to be rebuffed by Jessica — who can blame Nick, 32, for being confused? "It must have been weird for him," says the source close to the couple. "It sounds like he wasn't comfortable talking to her and asked that she give him his space." The insider says apparently Jessica burst into tears and asked, 'Where did it all go wrong?'" (Jessica's rep denies she's been calling Nick.)
