LOS ANGELES -- Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Nicole Richie, 24, and fiance Adam "D.J. AM" Goldstein, 32, have called it quits. "They have decided to break off the engagement," Richie's rep Cindy Guagenti confirms to Us. "The decision is mutual."
Sources tell Us Weekly that the pair, who had dated since 2003 and were to wed next year, decided to break up a few days ago. Of her planned nuptials, Richie told Us earlier this year, "I'm so happy. We're taking it slowly." [Source]
Wow! I don't even know what to say ... US Weekly tends to have the scoops when peeps in Hollywood break up. This story is still developing but I tend to believe the source. Wow. That is so sad.
In other news, US Weekly is also reporting that Jessica Simpson has hired Jennifer Aniston's divorce attorney:
EXCLUSIVE: SIMPSON HIRES ANISTON DIVORCE ATTORNEY
POSTED: Dec. 7, 2005 1:31 p.m. PST
LOS ANGELES -- Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Jessica Simpson has hired high-powered L.A. divorce attorney Robert Kaufman, who represented Jennifer Aniston in her divorce with Brad Pitt earlier this year, to handle her divorce with Nick Lachey. Kaufman could not be reached for comment. A rep for Simpson would neither confirm nor deny that she had enlisted Kaufman, but a Simpson pal tells Us, "Jennifer handled her divorce with Brad like a lady, in a non-sleazy way, and Jessica wants to do the same."
On Nov. 23, Simpson, 25, and Lachey, 32, announced their separation in a statement to Us after three years of marriage.
When it rains it pours. Well, there are still a few weeks left in 2005 ... I wonder what else is gonna happen.
