Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are NOT stuck in a sexless and troubled marriage, despite a newly fabricated tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.

According to Star, the four-year marriage between the TV personality and her rocker husband is falling apart. A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid, “Joel buys Nicole flowers and cooks romantic dinners, hoping to get her in the mood, but most of the time, she says she’s too tired.” The magazine’s supposed “source” goes on to claim that whenever Madden tries to take his wife out for an intimate dinner, she invites along his brother Benji Madden and wife Cameron Diaz to turn the date into a “group hangout.” The outlet’s “source” adds, “It wouldn’t surprise anyone if she saw Joel as just a friend at this point.”

Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Richie who tells us exclusively that there’s “no truth” to the rumors of marital woes. On the contrary, we hear the couple is happy. Star has attempted on numerous occasions to push similar breakup stories about Madden and Richie, and Gossip Cop has for years corrected the tabloid’s false reports. The latest tale of a so-called “dry spell” is equally untrue.
