A year later, he married Nicole at the Plaza Hotel in New York. He had a short-lived romance with Spice Girl Melanie Brown (when she announced she was pregnant with their daughter, he publicly questioned whether the baby was his) and exchanged marriage vows with film producer Edmonds in 2008 (but it was never a legal marriage). Meanwhile, Nicole was engaged to Michael Strahan and linked to Nick Cannon last year.

Their divorce was finalized a year later, but Nicole lost a big chunk of her settlement in a bizarre con scheme.
