Jessica Simpson dumped husband Nick Lachey after a soul-searching trip to Kenya, Africa.

The pop star/actress - who split from Lachey in December 2005 after three years of marriage - reveals she was on a charity mission in Africa when she realised her relationship was over.

She says: "People out there need to go to Third World countries and sit with children for a little bit."

Almost two years after the painful split, Simpson reveals therapy and her own diary helped her through the darkest days.

She adds: "I write in my journal. I believe in therapy as well."
