Nicole Richie And Joel Madden Divorce? LA Home Listed For Sale Amidst Divorce Rumors

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden divorce rumors are heating up.

The couple has yet to publicly comment on the status of their marriage directly, but just weeks after Nicole was spotted out without her wedding ring, another major hint has been dropped. According to Mail Online, Nicole and Joel have listed their Los Angeles home for sale. The sprawling 5,300 square foot Hollywood Hills mansion has been listed for $3.58 million.

"[Nicole and Joel] upgraded the amenities, roof lines and landscaping since they purchased the home. Reportedly, the residence - created in 1914 - was a good find due to the lush amount of space they were getting for the original asking price. The Maddens' former home is unique because of it's triplex quality in which three units are combined in one building," reports Mail Online.

If Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are getting a divorce, paperwork will more than likely be filed in the coming weeks. It seems as though they are taking all of the proper steps to get things in order before going through with the legal stuff. Unloading their home is definitely one less thing that they will have to deal with.

According to Forbes, the couple purchased the home in 2009 for $1.912 million, so they should make a pretty decent profit. They will likely split the money and not have to deal with splitting property in their filing, presuming that's where this is all headed.

Now, sources say that moving trucks were spotted at the couple's home on May 1, and they have already moved out of the home, but that they are still living together. Forbes reports that the two purchased a $6.7 million home in Beverly Hills back in March. If this is the case, it seems that the two aren't preparing to split up.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there is something else that seems to suggest that things are fine between the couple. On Mother's Day, Joel shared a picture with his wife, and the caption seemed to squash any and all rumors. At the end of his caption (below), he posted three heart emojis.

"Happy Mother's Day to my best friend and partner in rhyme. Best wife, mother and friend a father and his kids could ever ask for."
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden divorce rumors have been circulating since last year. The couple has two children together, Harlowe, 7, and Sparrow, 5.
