Photog Frenzy at Chez Madden

Brings Five-O

8/24/2007 9:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joel Madden's Glendale home was swarmed by photogs after Nicole Richie's in-and-out jail stint last night -- with so many paps -- that neighbors called the cops.

TMZ cameras caught Richie's baby daddy leaving the house in his car around 7:30 PM, no Nicole in sight as the fedora-rockin' rocker drove past the cameras. A little later, as everyone was waiting for a sign of the mini ex-con, a few police cruisers pulled onto the block and warned paparazzi to keep off Joel's property.

The popo showed up a couple more times, at one point talking to Joel's bro Benji about all the cameras, but left again after issuing only a warning, since nobody was doing anything illegal.

Nicole, disappointing the crowd, never emerged.

Why is this a story? They come out of their house, it's breaking news on TMZ. What has she done to warrant such attention? She is pregnant, big deal. She was on a reality show that was canceled. Is there no real celebs that have any accomplishments worth mentioning?

I have to agree with posting #4. Why is this news? Also, I know where Joe Madden lives and it is a nice residential place. I would call the cops too. I'm sorry, but take photos at the jail not in a residential street which also has non-celebrity people who have to go to a REAL job in the morning. The papparazzi are like roaches.

According to Hilary Duff, Joel did not like alot of attention. So now he has hooked up with this ditz, that is the focus of all paps, for some odd reason. They follow him because of her. It is not even because of his band, or any other resaon,other than he is her boyfriend. How long is that gonna work for him? He will get sick of it, after awhile.

Am I the only one who is wondering why in the world any photographers are following these two around??? Nice job. You get paid to follow, harass, and photograph these nobodies. Losers. Go do something productive with your lives. What we're seeing here is parasites on the asses of other parasites.

5. Maybe that's when the judicial system will be fair and make them serve REAL sentences. When they finally KILL some innocent person.

Nope. Rebecca Gayheart was speeding and talking on her cellphone when she ran over and killed a 9 year old boy. The cars in front of her slowed down so that he could cross the street, but she wouldn't wait, and decided to drive around the cars.

The DA charged her with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and she got off with a fine. How can manslaughter be a misdemeanor? That's how they get off. The DA lowers serious crimes from felonies to manslaughter.

LA is racist and corrupt because Hollywood controls everything.

Notice, the only "crowd" was the paps, if not for the paps, these worthless people would be getting no attention at all. PAPS are the adoring "crowds" that do the swarming, no one else cares about these stupid nobodies. Nicole has done NOTHING in her life but a lame disgusting/canceled show and beat a drug rap, like wow, that will so not be getting people to adore her. I would have called the cops, too, this is a quiet residential neighborhood and this kind of thing is outrageous. I don't know anyone who walk one foot out of their way to see Nicole or Joel, these two idiots are not even liked in in L.A. But the paps keep making them think they are popular, and THEY ARE NOT EVEN LIKED! If they were, I guess the neighbors would be out there standing around WITH the adoring paps and not calling the cops. Get a clue, Nicole and Joel, you are both nothing here. Of course, they can't even go to Joels's hometown, Nicole had them getting booed there!
