Sources Say Richie

Collapses at Hyde

10/29/2006 11:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole RichieSources tell TMZ that Nicole Richie passed out at Hyde nightclub early Sunday morning in Hollywood.

We're told it occurred just before 2 a.m., when Richie passed out and fell to the floor. An employee approached Richie and her friends and said he was calling 911. Sources say they told the employee not to make the call and that they would take Richie to a hospital. The friends then carried Richie out of the club through the back door. TMZ does not know if Richie went to the hospital.

Before Richie collapsed, we're told she hung out for awhile with Lindsay Lohan inside the club. Lohan had her own bizarre tale early Sunday morning on a street in Hollywood.

Nicole Richie: click to launchLate last week, Richie's reps confirmed that the "Simple Life" star entered a treatment facility to determine why she hasn't gained weight. Richie has looked shockingly thin over the last few months.

Richie's rep tells TMZ her client was at Hyde for approximately 20 minutes but denies that she collapsed.

The fact of the matter is that it's hard to quit drugs and it's hard to quit an eating disorder - if you want it really bad.

If you don't, then you're stuck.

If she doesn't want to get better, she wont, and if she keeps up like this, she's not going to live another year.

Who cares. If she wants to starve and drug herself to death, go ahead. It will mean one less shallow, superficial, materialistic walking, talking rectum in Hollywierd. She would be forgotten in a week.

perhaps nichole has lost weight due to the fact she could be using heroin again. she was treated for this a few years back. and the fact that she passed out the other night, well, one would really wonder.

I think they need to grow the hell up and start appreciating the fact that they can pay their bills, buy grocerys and put clothes on their bodies....if they took a fourth of the money they spend on booze, drugs and those dumbass outfits for their animals imagine how many familys in the good ole USA would not be living in poverty.

The employee at HYDE should be arrested for FELONY Reckless Endangerment because he didn't phone 911.

If Nicole Richie's "so called friends" did NOT immediately transport her to a Hospital's Emergency Room, they are ALSO guilty of FELONY Reckless Endangerment .

Unless the Hospital's Emergency Room was immediately close by the HYDE, Nicole Richie's "so called friends" are guilty of FELONY Reckless Endangerment by not waiting for the Paramedics to arrive at the HYDE.

If Nicole Richie's "so called friends" knew that she was doing illegal drugs, then they are also guilty of FELONY Criminal Conspiracy.

If Nicole Richie dies within 48 hours of this event, her "so called friends" are guilty of FELONY Manslaughter, as is the person that gave her and Lindsay Lohan these drugs.

But then the HYDE has been serving alcohol to underage girls like Lindsay Lohan for years so what does another FELONY matter to them.

In every other town except Beverly Hills, all of this would be "probable cause" to obtain Search Warrants for illegal drugs at the homes of Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan and especially Paris Hilton.

Nicole is the biggest liar, she kept denying she had any kind of problem, let alone an eating disorder, which is obvious. She and lindsey must have gotten a bad "bag" or she's SO undernourished, she's a "DEAD GIRL WALKING"

This is very sad, and her father can only help so much, if Nicole doesn't want help, she's not going to get it, plain and simple, you can't say "her father should step in", Nicole has to WANT help, until then, she just may die.

It's death cab for cutie time now. Let's not act surprised when the headline reads "Nichole found dead from overdose"....blah blah. In her condition and with friend like that...it's won't be long now. Maybe it will be a lesson for the other anorexic heroin addicts in Hollywood. NOT, they'll never learn and 82% will never stop unitl the day they are dead. Sorry if it sounds cold but hey it's the facts!

This is getting really out of control. She's not doing a very good job of getting attention off her with these antics.
