"She was devastated, heartbroken. She didn't think he would do that," a source close to Jess has confessed to People magazine.
Jessica’s pals all gathered at her house on the day the article hits stores to help console the blonde babe, and she even received a phone call from Nick himself as “he wanted her to hear it from him” - as a friend of Nick’s says.
"He felt bad that she was upset, but Nick didn't apologise, because the things he said [in the article] only demonstrate that he loves her."
Team Simpson insist Nick is using their couple’s divorce to promote his upcoming album (duh!), "What’s Left Of Me", which is released on May 19th.
"What really upset her was the timing. Nick waited until two weeks before his album debut to tell a reporter that he loved Jessica. That's not cool," the source close to Jess has also revealed.
"He keeps saying, 'I'm sorry I couldn't make her happy,' but he is not choosing to say why."
Jess is also pissed as while Nick has been revealing all, she’s turned down offers to tell her side of the split including a Vanity Fair cover story.
"She will not take the low road," the source concludes.
