Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are obviously working hard to make their marriage work. The troubled couple were photographed walking hand-in-hand to a U2 concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening. Nicole and Joel looked happy and calm as they quashed divorce rumors with their recent display of affection.
Richie, 33, wore a black lace turtleneck and a white crochet sweater with black skinny jeans. The Candidly Nicole reality star also debuted her new lilac pixie-style haircut. Madden, 36, kept it casual in an all-black ensemble. The Good Charlotte rocker was dressed in a black T-shirt, a black vest, and black jeans with a matching trucker hat. Both Richie and Madden were reportedly seen wearing their wedding rings.

It’s been previously reported that Richie and Madden’s divorce is currently on hold. Several reports claimed that their marriage was headed for trouble. Both tabloids and online blogs have reported Richie and Madden’s shaky marriage for the past few months. Alleged sources said that Richie and Madden fought constantly and were staying together for the sake of their children.
Nicole Richie also fueled divorce rumors when she was spotted several times without her wedding ring. It also didn’t help the rumors when moving vans were seen outside their Bel-Air mansion. Richie and Madden were also seen having a very tense lunch in Los Angeles last month.
Is there also trouble in paradise for Nicole Richie’s BFF, Cameron Diaz? According to several reports, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden have been feuding amid the Nicole Richie and Joel Madden divorce rumors. It sounds like Nicole’s marital woes are starting to have an effect on Cameron and Benji.
An alleged source revealed in the June 8 issue of Life & Style that Cameron and Benji have been caught in the middle of their friend’s marriage problems.
“Cam is siding with Nicole as she contemplates divorce and it’s causing her and Benji to fight. She doesn’t want to be disloyal to her husband and his family, but Nicole is her girl!”
The source also added that Benji doesn’t like it when Nicole turns to Cameron for advice on her marriage.
“Nicole and Cam and having have been hanging out all the time, which infuriates Benji. He is pressuring his wife to side with Joel, but Cameron has known Nicole much longer than she’s known him and would never betray her.”
Meanwhile, Diaz is turning to Drew Barrymore for advice on her own marriage. It sounds like she doesn’t want to burden Richie with her own marital problems. Another report claims that Diaz and Benji Madden already went through their own rough patch only after a few months of marriage.
“Drew said Cam should let Benji know he’s the most important man in her life and keep his ego padded. She’s taking Drew’s advice seriously. She wants to stay happily married.”
To make things even more confusing, Cameron Diaz also shared some of her relationship advice with Joel Madden. According to the source, Joel came to Cameron after his own problems with Nicole Richie.
“Joel is determined to fight for Nicole. He’s been leaning on Cameron, saying he doesn’t want to give up on the marriage. He says he’ll do whatever he can to prove his devotion to her and their family.”
