In Touch and Life & Style have decided to gang up on Nicole Richie and Joel Madden this week
. The magazines, both owned by the same company both say that Nicole and Joel are dunzo. The two are splitting and have been living separate lives for quite sometime. It is true that they only seem to be together when there is some kind of red carpet event or family occasion. Nicole did recently go on Jimmy Kimmel without her gin, but that could just be because there is no jewelry small enough to fit her fingers. She also did recently vacation without Joel, but maybe Joel doesn't like seeing Jessica Alba in bikinis and knew that Nicole and Jessica would be prancing around on the beach together and he decided that would not be fun at all to watch in person.
