Betting site stops bets on Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson marriage
UPI News Service, 10/07/2005
A Web site stopped taking bets on the future of former "Newlyweds" Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson after suspicious wagers predicted the couple's demise.
Executives at the online gambling site Nine.com said red flags were raised by a large number of suspicious wagers against the marriage lasting -- all coming from areas where the couple had either lived in the past or currently reside, MTV.com reported Friday.
Rather than lose a bundle to bets based on "insider information," the site canceled all wagers on the couple.
Both Simpson and Lachey spent most of this week denying tabloid reports that their marriage is in trouble or has ended.
