Nicole Richie

Officially a Free Woman!!!

12/29/2010 3:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie's probation was terminated this morning -- months before it was scheduled to end ... TMZ has learned.

1201-nicole-richie-ex-getty-04
Nicole was on probation for a DUI in 2006, where she was driving the wrong way on an L.A. freeway.

Nicole's lawyer, the effervescent Shawn Chapman Holley, went to court this AM -- in the rain no less -- and presented the judge with proof Nicole had completed all the terms of probation, including a glowing report from the alcohol ed program in which she's been enrolled for the last 18 months.

Probation was scheduled to end in February, but since all the terms have been satisfied, the judge agreed to terminate it early.

So Mrs. Madden starts the New Year as a married but free woman.

My two cents ;)    

she cant be arrested for abusing herself with anorexia...Good job on clearing your name though. Just kick the body image problem out the door because it would be sad to loose a success story into an obituary. God speed Nic!

"...Married but free woman." Now THAT'S a contradiction in terms if I ever heard one!

Why is she in the news? Who is she? Paris Hilton's childhood friend? Adopted daughter of Richie? Ok she was a snot who said rude things to people for shock value, took drugs and was arrested. Then she got clean and gets money from her dad. Why is she famous? What does she do?

Two illegitimate kids and she finally gets around to marrying her babydaddy.

She hasn't grown up at all. But she did learn to do her dirt in secret.

Tmz, you guys really are a bunch of morons. Her probation wasn't terminated "months before it was scheduled to end." it was set to end in February. We are a couple of days from January. Stop embellishing the facts of your stories to make them seem like people are getting some kind of special treatment.

Good for her... she (unlike Lindsey) did it right ... stayed clean, stayed out of trouble.. Nichole grew up and took responsibility .. now she has two adorable kids and a new husband while Paris and Lindsey keep pretending they are still 19yr old Hollywood starlets... wake up girls, your stars have fallen.

Good for her! She really turned her life around. She's the one who ought to open a real rehab center for the likes of Lindsay and other at-risk young actors and actresses before they throw their careers, or worse yet, their lives away. Bet they couldn't get anything past Nicole like Lindsay has been able to do with all the docs and rehab centers she's been to. What a great roll model Nicole is for all young people in Hollywood who have lost their way. I hope she writes a book about it.
