Love Is Blind cohost Nick Lachey seems to have landed himself in hot water. The Daily Mail reports that the 49-year-old singer must attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and anger management classes over an incident that happened last year.

But what exactly did Nick Lachey do to earn this punishment?

Although Nick Lachey appears to be cool and collected on Love Is Blind, he might not be so kind in real life. Paparazzi member Jody Santos revealed that the singer was incredibly rude and aggressive with her once he realized she was taking his photo.

Last spring, Santos spotted Nick and Vanessa Lachey coming out of a restaurant and decided to snap a photo.

“Nick’s not really on the radar. I just saw him and I figured I would get a shot of a couple coming out of a restaurant. I have taken photos of him plenty of times and never had a problem, but this time was different,” Santos told The Daily Mail. “He flipped me off and then I heard Vanessa say, ‘Go get ’em, open the door’ and then he started walking towards my car all aggressive.”

She claimed that she locked her car door and quickly rolled up the window. Nick Lachey proceeded to start punching her window to the point where Santos was earnestly surprised he didn’t at least crack the glass.

As Nick walked away, Santos claimed she rolled down her window and asked why he was being so mean to her. He then turned around and started shouting obscenities at her. She claimed she could really smell the alcohol on his breath.

“Until this day, Nick hasn’t taken any responsibility. He’s justified it. He thought this was done, but it’s not done,” the photographer shared. “A personal apology was declined, then a written apology was declined. No one from his team has reached out and asked, ”Are you ok?'”

Nick Lachey later tweeted about the incident but claimed he was being harassed. Santos denied his claim, asserting that she never once got out of the car.

The Love Is Blind host is now paying the price for his outburst

Although the incident took place last March, Nick Lachey is just now receiving his punishment.

The Daily Mail shares that the Netflix star has to complete 52 sessions of anger management classes as well as regular AA meetings. According to Santos, this all has to be done “within a reasonable time.” Otherwise, the courts could prosecute him with non-compliance and could even arrest him.

It’s not immediately clear if this will have an impact on Love Is Blind production. Season 4 is scheduled to premiere on Netflix this week.
