Nicole Richie and Joel Madden

Nicole Richie Ready For Divorce After Catching Joel Madden Texting Another Girl

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s relationship is going downhill, and rumors of divorce have been swirling for a bit now. Radar Online shared the news that it sounds like Nicole Richie is ready to get the papers ready and divorce him. A source is revealing that Nicole was going through Joel’s phone and found some texts to another woman. This was pretty much the final straw for her.

Joel of the group Good Charlotte is going to be heading to Australia too. He is actually a coach on their version of The Voice. Madden will be heading there soon, and now he is getting texts from “some random girl who said she was excited to see him when he comes back to town.” So far, there are only reports of Joel texting this one girl, and it doesn’t sound like the texts got down and dirty either. They have been married for five years, but it sounds like Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s marriage won’t last much longer.

The source went on to reveal that Nicole Richie is so upset that she is pretty much done with him. Nicole is ready to call it quits.

“She’d already spoken to lawyers. But this time, she had the paperwork drawn up. She’s on the verge of a breakdown. Nicole’s world is falling apart and she’s an emotional wreck, but she doesn’t have it in her to stay in a marriage where he disrespects her feelings constantly. She’s going through with the divorce.”

Back in December, Nicole’s husband was seen out shopping and didn’t have his wedding ring on. This just helped to fuel the rumors that Nicole and Joel were on the verge of a divorce. Now it looks like the news of their split could be hitting soon.

OK! Magazine shared recently that Nicole Richie was trying to have a baby with Joel Madden. This source said that their marriage was back on track again after such a hard time, but these new text messages she found seem to have thrown that off. The source at the time shared that Nicole and sister-in-law Cameron Diaz were competing to see who could have a baby first. The source shared that Cameron has been trying all year and hasn’t had any luck yet getting pregnant.

The source went on to say that Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie were both planning to get pregnant by spring if they have their way about it. The source also said that Nicole and Cameron were excited about being pregnant at the same time. They really want to go through this all together, and of course, it would be a great bonding experience for them both. They are said to be competing to get pregnant, but at the same time, they want to do it together.

If Nicole Richie has been trying to get pregnant, that could be pretty hard on her if a baby is on the way and she is now getting a divorce. This might be a reason for Nicole Richie and Joel Madden to give their marriage one last try and see if they can make it work.
