Nicole Richie is “wasting away” reports Star, which claims the “Fashion Star” mentor shocked onlookers when she showed off an “emaciated frame at Paris Fashion Week.” The magazine says Richie “showed off a skin-and-bones figure, including a protruding collarbone and stick thin legs” when she sat front row at the Valentino runway show on March 5.

A supposed “observer” for the tab tattles, “She looked unbelievable thin,” revealing, “It was hard to look at.” “Whether it’s dieting, working out or both, she’s simply gone too far. She looked like she hadn’t eaten in weeks,” adds the purported “witness.” Star goes on to consult body and health expert Alice Hunter — who has never met Richie — and quotes her as saying, “She seems to be hovering around 92 lbs.”

The tabloid alleges that the star’s alleged weight loss has friends “concerned that she may relapse,” with one so-called “pal” claiming, “It’s time for those close to her to step in before things get worse.” Oh, so this is a “pal” who’s actually not “close to her.” Whatever.

So, is the mom of two really suffering from an eating disorder all over again? Absolutely NOT. A source close to Richie tells Gossip Cop the mag’s story is “completely untrue,” saying the star observes a very healthy lifestyle.
