Nick Lachey talks about his autistic brother and support for the cause

Nick Lachey is best known for being the lead singer of the boy band 98 Degrees and for having once been married to Jessica Simpson. Lachey has a brother that is autistic, and recently he talked about his brother for the first time. Nick's brother is Zac Lachey and he is 19 years old.

Nick says that before he talked about why he supports Autism publically, he talked with his brother to be sure he was ok with the information being public. The diagnosis for Zac came when he wasn’t learning in the typical way at school reports CBS News. At first, they thought it was ADHD, but later Zac was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome.

"He's referred to as high-functioning autistic," said Lachey, 40, told CBS News. "So he's verbal and able to go to a fairly typical school. He's socially different than what we perceive as normal for kids. He gets anxious and he's very focused. He hones in one on thing and he can't be taken out of it...He's a good kid, a sweet kid...He just learns differently than most people and reacts to situations differently."

"There's just so many questions and very few answers. It's just something we have to do more research on and we have to get the answers that these families so desperately seek. Mine included."

To help raise money for investigating Autism, Lachey was at the fifth Lindy Gold Bunny Celebrity Auction last week where he was one of 100 celebs that appeared.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
