Nicole Camille Richie (born Nicole Camille Escovedo; September 21, 1981) is an American fashion designer, author and television personality. Her father was Peter Michael Escovedo, a musician who played for a brief time with Lionel Richie, and an unknown backstage assistant for singer and musician Lionel Richie. Nicole Richie is the adopted daughter of soul singer Lionel Richie and his then-wife Brenda Harvey. Richie is perhaps best known for her role in the Fox reality television series The Simple Life. In recent years Richie has focused on charity work and environmental issues. In November 2007 Richie and partner Joel Madden created "The Richie Madden Children's Foundation". Richie's tumultuous personal life has attracted significant publicity in tabloid press, for her dramatically thin appearance, which sparked rumors of an eating disorder, two driving under the influence (DUI) arrests in 2003 and 2006, and her extensive drug abuse throughout her late teenage years and early twenties. Richie entered rehabilitation and has since given birth to two children with husband Joel Madden, member of the American pop-punk rock band Good Charlotte.
