Love Is Blind host, Nick Lachey, is being held accountable after he had an inappropriate interaction with a female paparazzi in March of 2022.
According to reports from Daily Mail, the 98° crooner is mandated to attend “both anger management classes and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings” after approaching a photographer, reaching through her car window in an attempt to take her camera, sticking his tongue out at her, and flipping her the double bird. (Way to keep it classy, N*ck.)
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office confirmed the Netflix host won’t face charges as long as Nick completes the mandatory anger management classes and attend AA meetings.
“Mr. Lachey has not been charged with misdemeanor assault and battery. Instead he is participating in LADA’s Prefiling Diversion program, which was established in 2017.”
People obtained a document revealing, “As part of these conditions he must participate in anger management classes and attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Successful completion of the Prefiling Diversion Program will result in no criminal charges being filed.”
In case you missed last year’s altercation, TMZ reported the winner of The Masked Singer confronting a photographer taking photos from her car.
“Nick and his wife, Vanessa [Lachey], went out to eat at Mastro’s in Beverly Hills … After seeing a photog taking pics of him from her car, he made his way across the street, allegedly punching her window and calling her a “p*ssy mother f*cker.”
‘Obviously‘ Nick Lachey was unaware his actions were caught on video when he tried to defend himself.
Before the video went viral, Nick tweeted, “Last night, after enjoying a great dinner with my wife and our dear friend, the paparazzi harassed us as we walked back to our hotel.”
“I clearly overreacted. I’ve been in this game long enough to know that their antics are sadly part of the deal. Stupid of me. Done.” **He’s also been in the biz long enough to know paparazzi are always at Mastro’s and Nobu. This is common knowledge in LA.**
A second tweet stated, “However, for TMZ or anyone else to say that I was violent or that I ‘got physical’ with someone is reckless and absolutely false. Once again, TMZ likes to create their own clickbait narrative. Life’s too short, we move on.”
See the altercation for yourself!
