Nick Lachey has angrily denied tracks on his new album are an attack on his estranged wife Jessica Simpson.
The Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica stars split after three years of marriage late last year.
Lachey insists the confessional song What's Left Of Me place more blame on himself than her.
The 32-year-old says: "It's not in any way vindictive or an assault on her. In a lot of ways, it's more of an assault on me. Jessica knows I still love her."
Lachey also sings about his marriage break-up on I Can't Hate You Anymore.
