Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo Split

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have split, Access Hollywood has confirmed.

“They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another,” Vanessa’s rep told Access.

A rep for Nick told Access that he and Vanessa “have amicably ended their relationship”.

Despite rumors of an impending break-up, earlier this month the actress, 28, told People, who first reported news of the couple’s split, that she and Nick, 35, were “very much still on.”

According to a mag source, they are “still friends. It was the right thing for both of them to do.”

Nick and Vanessa began dating in 2006.
