Nicole Richie

From Court to the Hospital

11/18/2009 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118_nicole_richie_bn2-1Nicole Richie was telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth Monday in court when she said she wasn't feeling well -- because now she's holed up in a hospital, sick as a dog.

Richie ended up having pneumonia ... and is now being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., this according to her rep.

Richie's cough-filled testimony on Monday still did the job -- she was granted restraining orders against two paparazzi she claimed caused her to get into a car accident.

OOWW I just stubbed my toe can I get a news item on TMZ? This woman has done nothing for years except shop and get pregnant, why the hell are the paps still following this useless woman around

Sounds like she *may* have contracted H1N1. The CDC has been saying all along that H1N1 is very dangerous to pregnant women. Pregnancy depresses the immune system and H1N1 is much more likely than the seasonal flu to lead to pneumonia in vulnerable groups like pregnant women. Strong, healthy pregnant young women have died of pneumonia as a result of H1N1. It's really sleazy to blame her condition on drugs or anything else without knowing the facts.

Maybe now that she is in the hospital they will realize that she has anorexia and one day she will learn to eat. How can you be pregnant when you re anorexic??? OY!

Wow, people's compassion is endless, especially on TMZ, which speaks for itself. This is serious and not funny. She has two young children. I'm sure she'll be okay, but there's always a possibility for a different outcome with pneumonia, especially if it was caused by swine flu. It can kill young, healthy people. I hope she gets better soon.

Maybe she has A1DS.

She was using heroin for a few years. She has been sick before. She also attacked the paparazzi after they accused her of being anorexic with: "What if I had a disease?"

"Pneumonia" is code.

Wow. News flash...... Some people just CAN'T GAIN WEIGHT. Doesn't mean they're anorexic. That myth is perpetrated by the fat, ugly cows that sit on their a55's all day. True, Nicole was once bigger but this seems to be her HEALTHY weight.

And to the person stressing.. "Gain some weight, you have kids!!" or whatever nonsense. Have you ever stopped to think that women with eating disorders DON'T GET PERIODS, thus CANNOT HAVE BABIES? Again, perhaps this is not an abnormal weight for this woman. Calm down you anorexic obsessed alarmists!

First, Nicole is a tiny woman hardly five feet one or two, so her weight is right where it should be it is just you can not tell she is so tiny by the photos. As for her turning her life around, yes she did a great job, and she is a wonderful mom. It is not a surprise she is worn down due to having two small babies, and a car accident and then a court case. No matter what she does some ass clown will always bring up her past as if no one on this site has made a mistake? She paid for hers now let it go as it is getting so pathetic to read about her past each and every time a story is printed about her. Nicole I truly hope you get well soon, take care and God Bless honey, it will get better...Yoda
