Nicole and Joel

Unhitched

11/16/2009 8:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are not married, despite what was said in court today.

1116_richie_madden_ex-1
Mark Geragos, Nicole's lawyer, asked his client during the restraining order hearing this afternoon, "Did you call your husband?" Nicole answered, "Yes."

Sources connected with the case tell us Geragos misspoke and Nicole didn't correct him, but Nicole and Joel are not married. As a result, the restraining order does not cover Joel, though it will cover the kids.

nicole will be all skinny looking soon . she still has the fat on her from having her baby. she looks so much better with the weight on her . she looked good in that show with that nobody paris hilton. Nicole's body looked so much better then paris but i guess hollywood told her she was fat and after that she turned into a bone. Nicole's real mom has weight on her so nicole will deal with her weight all her life . if you look at the parents , thats what the kids will look like as they get older .
so keep the weight on nicole. u look better but i still think your full of yourself . anyone who has a friend like paris hilton i do not have respect for. paris is a liar , almost 30 yrs old and still acting like a teenager. i hated when i seen Britt spears with paris in a pic together not to long ago. stay away from PARIS! if your around her it only makes you look blah! it was funny when they had Demi Moore's daughter Rumor hanging out with paris just to get some attention. paris had a look on her face like GET THIS THING AWAY FROM ME ! well I'm glad Rumor is now far away from her because if u hang with paris you look stupid. then paris had to try and get some attention because no one cares for her anymore so she starts seeing Nicole's boyfriends twin brother. GO FARRRRRR AWAYYYYYYY PARIS AND nicole STAY AWAY FROM HER
THERE I'M DONE......OH ONE MORE THING. ON GENERAL HOSPITAL , KILL LULU OFF THE SHOW. I DONT WANT HER TO RUIN DANTES CHARACTER ! LULU IS A BRAT. PUT DANTE WITH A REAL WOMAN ...OK BYE

Do some research.
Paris runs a successful business empire and her BFF shows are huuuuge. Her life is on track. Plus she has a handsome boyfriend who loves her and whose parents want her for their daughter in law.

If they live together over six months in California you are atomatically common-law marriage partners. And "domestic abuse" can be entered in is some of the people involved at least lived togehter and/or bore a child.

BTW - you live with another guy or gal and you are paying the rent and you are the only one on the lease, so when you tell the significant other has to leave......right? Nope. If they have personal items there or receive mail there, you as a tenenant have to evict them. In the meantime they have as much right as you do, paying rent or not.

Somethin' to think about before shakin' up and playin' house

Soooooo, Nicole and her man are "common law" and can receive full protection of the law as married folk

BE4 SHE WENT TO JAIL SHE WAS CARRYING THE BIBLE AROUND WITH A SAD LOOK ON HER FACE LIKE POOR ME ! THEN WHEN LARRY KING ASKED HER ABOUT THE BIBLE THE GIRL DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE OF WHAT TO SAY . PARIS IS MADE BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T GET ATTENTION ANYMORE. SHE KNOWS HER DAYS ARE DONE . AND HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU KNOW THAT HER LIFE IS BACK ON TRACK?? DID SHE TELL YOU?? YOUR ONLY SAYING THAT BECAUSE SHE HASN'T BEEN SEEN IN A WHILE SO U MUST THINK SHES DOING GOOD. SHE HASN'T BEEN SEEN BECAUSE NO ONE CARES ! GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT AND WHEN U TALK TO HER ABOUT HOW SHE HAS HER LIFE ON TRACK...COULD U ASK HER A QUESTION FOR ME? THE QUESTION IS HOW DID YOU GET YOUR LIFE BACK ON TRACK? THANKS !

Ugghhhhhh    

Who really cares about this stupid anorexic shallow cun*, Nicole? and who the hell is her husband? Yeah, no one knows and no one cares. I feel sorry for that kid but hopefully like most celebrities they have a good nanny to raise it.

I'm just wondering why she has to be a drama queen...I would be in court trying to protect my kids also...Everybody is not as Grl29. We all have done things in our younger years and as we grow up we learn better, therefore we do better. This is America's problem, we are so quick to sit in judgment and beat the next person down becasue they don't appear to be perfect like the next. Get real people we are nuts to an extent. I commend Ms. Ritchie for doing what she think is best for her kids...drama queen or not...Who the hell cares...Holla!!
