August 21, 2008: "Nicole Richie Furious Over Joel Madden's Friendship With Mary-Kate Olsen"
Nicole Richie is reportedly furious over her fiance's friendship with Mary-Kate Olsen.
The 26-year-old socialite is believed to have told Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, 29, to stay away from the actress after she was seen flirting with him at a recent dinner.
A source said: "During the dinner, Mary-Kate was very playful with Joel. It was all fun and games, but with the Olsens nothing is as simple as that. Nicole exploded at Joel and demanded that they leave the party. Afterward, Nicole warned him to stay away from Mary-Kate."
Mary-Kate, 22, went to watch the rocker perform in New York last week, further angering Nicole - who gave birth to the couple's first child, daughter Harlow, in January - by hanging out with the band after the show.
The source added to America's Life and Style magazine: "After the concert, Joel invited her back to see the tour bus. He showed her some baby photos of Harlow. Joel isn't one to lie or hide things from Nicole, so the next day he told her about it on the phone."
"Nicole freaked out. Joel thought she'd respect the fact that he was trying to be honest - after all, he and Mary-Kate are just friends - but Nicole was hurt and angry. He couldn't deal with it, so he hung up, and she kept texting him after that."

Actress, singer and author Nicole Richie picture(s)/pic(s),video, wallpaper and photo gallery. News and Gossip
Birth name: Nicole Camille Richie.
Born: September 21, 1981 Berkeley, California, USA.
Height: 5' 1" (1.55 m).
Nicole Richie biography (bio):
Nicole Camille Richie is an American socialite, actress, author, and singer. The adopted daughter of Lionel Richie, she is known for her role in the reality show The Simple Life and her turbulent personal life.
Nicole Richie was born Nicole Camille Escovedo in Berkeley, California. Her biological mother was a backstage assistant for Lionel.
Lionel Richie ran into Nicole first as a little girl playing on stage at a Prince concert, her mother was part of the wardrobe group. Nicole was playing a tamborine. Lionel became a guardian first for Nicole and later adopted her. "Parkinson - BBC"
At age two, Nicole went to live with Lionel and his wife Brenda Harvey-Richie, who began to raise her as their daughter. When she was three years old, Nicole started attending weekly sessions with a psychotherapist and remained in therapy throughout her childhood. When she was nine, the Richies legally adopted Nicole. Shortly after the adoption was formalized, Lionel's affair with another woman became public knowledge. Nicole told Ryan Seacrest that she learned about Lionel's adultery when she read about it in a tabloid. The Richies went through a highly-publicized, bitterly acrimonious split, and, apparently feeling guilty about the end of their marriage, indulged Nicole's every whim. "Their way of making me happy was to say yes to everything I wanted, but I don't think a little girl should have that much freedom", said Richie in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine.
Richie's godfathers are Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones. Quincy Jones said in a People magazine interview that he has "known her since she was a baby. She's a very smart girl. When she was younger she worked eight hours a day for eight years to become an Olympic figure skater. She's a very talented girl."
In addition to figure skating, Richie studied the guitar, cello, violin, and piano. She attended The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California and graduated from Montclair College Preparatory School. After high school, she studied Arts and Media for two years at the University of Arizona.
Richie still speaks with her biological mother but has no contact with her biological father. The identity of her biological father is the subject of much speculation. In a November 15, 2005 CNN interview with Seacrest, Richie stated that her birth father (whom she declined to identify) was not a member of Lionel's band. According to an April 2006 Tatler magazine interview with Richie, it is rumored that her biological father is musician Peter Michael Escovedo (brother of musician Sheila E.), but Richie denied this in a November 2005 Jane magazine interview.
Richie says of her heritage that she is a "mix of everything", and self-identifies as African American.
Friendship, feud and reconciliation with Paris Hilton
On April 20, 2005, amid media reports that their friendship was in trouble, Paris Hilton, who had been friends with Richie since childhood, released a statement saying, "It's no big secret that Nicole and I are no longer friends", and "Nicole knows what she did, and that's all I'm ever going to say about it." A circulating rumor was the story that Richie had shown Hilton's sex tape at a party; though Richie has denied this. Richie, however, said "There's nothing that really happened, we've just grown apart."
In October 2006, Richie and Hilton reportedly reconciled their friendship.
In an interview in the March 2007 issue of OK! magazine, Richie said: "It got so blown up that at the VMA's in August, the woman who was looking after me was having this intense vibe with her walkie-talkie, like, 'Okay, come to the stairs, go through this back door.' I didn't understand why I was doing this maze, and finally Paris and I crossed paths. The escorts were really trying to make it so we didn't see each other. It was ridiculous. When we ended up talking again, we recapped that night and laughed."
Legal problems and arrests:
On February 2003, Richie was arrested in Malibu, California and charged with possession of heroin. She was also driving with a suspended driver's license.
On December 11, 2006 as well, Richie was arrested by the California Highway Patrol after she failed a field sobriety test and was charged with driving under the influence on California State Route 134 in the Burbank/Glendale, California area (Ironically, near her boyfriend's home). Several motorists had reported a black Mercedes-Benz G-Class entering the freeway on the exit ramp and traveling in the wrong direction. She admitted to using marijuana and Vicodin before the incident. On July 27, 2007, Richie was sentenced to four days in jail after she admitted to driving under the influence of drugs. Her sentence must, reportedly, be completed by September 28, 2007.
In the spring of 2006, Richie made media headlines with a dramatically thinner appearance, after spending two seasons of "The Simple Life" slightly heavier than her usual. In May she told Vanity Fair, "I know I'm too thin right now, so I wouldn't want any young girl looking at me and saying, 'That's what I want to look like." She also said, "I started seeing a nutritionist and a doctor. I was scared that it could be something more serious." During this time it was reported that she had also sought the help of a psychiatrist and a personal trainer. Later that year, in September, Richie stated "I am not anorexic. I am not bulimic. I do not have an eating disorder." In Elle Girl's 2006 Prom issue, in which Richie appeared on the cover, she said that it upsets her when people come up to her and ask her if she has a problem. She maintained that skinny was her natural body type and there wasn't anything she could do about it.
On October 27, 2006, it was announced that Richie was seeking treatment for "an inability to put on weight", though it is not treatment for an eating disorder.
In March 2007, Richie was taken to the hospital for dehydration and on March 21 her Reps announced she was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. In a March OK! magazine interview, Nicole said: "I don't care about any other rumor except the one that I have an eating disorder. That really bothers me because there are people who truly have eating disorders and it is a serious disease. To put that title on someone when it is not true is disrespectful. I've repeatedly said, 'No, I don't have an eating disorder,' and it has fallen on deaf ears."
Richie dated Canadian music producer and entrepreneur Brad Salyn for several months in 2002. The two continue to be friends, with Salyn producing several tracks on Richie's upcoming debut album.
Richie dated club DJ Adam Goldstein, also known as DJ AM, since 2004. In February 2005, they became engaged, but they broke off the engagement December 7, 2005. They were seen together again in public in March 2006.
In August 2006, Richie began dating Brody Jenner, a life-long family friend. According to US Weekly, Richie and Jenner split up in October 2006. Nicole posted an entry on her official MySpace blog to clear the air: "I know there are rumors regarding my "breakup" with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he�s a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity."
Richie is currently dating Joel Madden of the band Good Charlotte. After months of speculation, Richie announced her pregnancy on July 31, 2007 in an interview with Diane Sawyer saying that she is nearly 4 months pregnant and Madden is the father.
The Simple Life:
Richie and heiress Paris Hilton starred in the 2003 reality series The Simple Life, in which they lived for a month with a family in the rural community of Altus, Arkansas. In the second season, The Simple Life 2: Road Trip, the girls traveled the American South driving a pink pick-up and living in a trailer. In the third season The Simple Life 3: Interns, the girls traveled the East Coast on a bus, staying at 15 different families' houses.
In late 2005, FOX chose not to renew The Simple Life, explaining that they didn't see a place for it in their schedule. A month later, cable network E! picked up the fourth season, The Simple Life 4: 'Til Death Do Us Part, in which the girls traveled around California, acting as the mother of the family, raising kids for a day and acting as a wife to the father, though both would do tasks separately and not be seen together on screen. While the fifth season, The Simple Life 5: 'The Simple Life Goes To Camp, debuted on E! on May 28th 2007, it was announced on July 30th, 2007 that the show will not be renewed for another season.
Richie made her acting debut with a supporting role as cheerleader Kelly Stepford in the 2005 movie Kids in America. She has also made guest appearances in such TV shows as MADtv, 8 Simple Rules, Six Feet Under, and American Dreams. Recently, Richie appeared in her father's music video for "I Call It Love", opposite Adam Rodriguez.
Another project of Richie's is a music album. Nicole has stated to Tyra Banks while appearing on her talk show that her main career focus was and has always been music and that she's wanted to be a singer since she was a young girl. Richie was a member of the rock band Darling. She and model Josie Maran and socialites Soleil and Sofia Alberti were members.
The songs reported to be done so far are a mixture of rock, soul and dance. One track, called "Dandelion", which is her first single recording and a cover of a song by boy band LFO, was leaked early; it is a melodic pop-track. In recent magazine articles, Richie said the demo 'Dandelion' will not appear in her debut album. She also performed a song called "Tell Him", which can be heard on American Dreams.
As of August 2006, Richie has six out of ten tracks finished for her record. In September 2006, Richie announced that she will soon debut the artwork for her album on her official MySpace page, however 3 days after the blog was posted, it was taken down and her record label status was changed to "none." This caused the thought that Nicole has been either dropped from her label or the label wants to keep everything under wraps until promotion begins. As of April 2007 no artwork has been posted nor confirmed and her album has seemed to be put on hold. Speculation is that she is working on getting healthy and then starting promotion for her album.
According to new reports by OK! Magazine, she is continuing work on her new album with the help of boyfriend Joel Madden.
The album is currently on hold again due to Richie's pregnancy.
Other career activities:
Richie wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, The Truth About Diamonds, which was released by Bharell Jackson Publishing. The novel is loosely based on her life, but is mostly fictional. It chronicles Chloe Parker, the adopted daughter of a singer who makes her way through all of the hottest nightclubs and parties in Hollywood and battles a drug addiction. It was rumored that a character in the book, Simone Westlake, was based on Paris Hilton.
Richie is a former model for Bongo Jeans and former face of Jimmy Choo.
In an interview in the March 2007 issue of OK! magazine, Richie said: "I have a style book that I'm working on. And I'm launching a jewelry-and-accessories line, a sunglasses line and doing my own perfume."
