The newest issue of Star magazine is claiming that Nicole Richie is “alone and sick” and that her marriage to Joel Madden is headed in the direction of Splitsville. The tabloid writes, “After three years of marriage and two kids, husband Joel [Madden] hooks up with a hot redhead while Nicole starves herself.” We’re not sure how true this story is, but it’s definitely something to wonder about, as Joel was spotted kissing singer Bonnie McKee on the cheek several weeks ago. Gasp! Cheek kiss = affair. Definitely.
Now, the magazine’s claiming that Nicole is experiencing a “potentially deadly weight crisis” because of the emotional stress Joel’s causing her while he works in Australia.
“Their marriage is hanging by a thread, and she’s considering a divorce,” says a source for the mag. “The stress from her marriage has made Nicole lose her appetite. She’s trying to stay strong for the kids, but she’s been extremely down and cries all the time.”
However, if you take Nicole’s word for it (and trust it), her marriage is perfect and wonderful. In an interview with Paper, she said recently, “We’ve obviously gone back and forth because we did grow up so differently, and there are aspects about the way he was raised that I wish I’d had and vice versa. We just apply both of those ideas to our family.”
