Nicole Richie is NOT meeting with divorce lawyers, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can, once again, bust this rumor. A rep for Richie tells Gossip Cop that the story is not true.

According to In Touch, Richie and husband Joel Madden are on the verge of a split. The tabloid alleges that the fashion designer secretly met with “one of LA’s most prominent divorce attorneys, and is weighing her options.” The only supposed proof the tabloid has it was that Richie was spotted earlier this month without her wedding ring on.

The magazine claims the couple has been arguing for the past few months over “their busy schedules and parenting.” The tabloid quotes a so-called “insider” as saying Richie’s “desperately unhappy,” and that she and Madden’s only form of communication is through their kids’ nanny.

Richie and Madden have been the subject of split rumors for years. Gossip Cop busted the tabloid for claiming in very similar-sounding stories that Madden and Richie were getting divorced in 2012 and again in 2013. And just earlier this month, Gossip Cop called out another manufactured In Touch story that alleged the pair was in “deep relationship trouble.” Repeating a lie, doesn’t make it true. Regardless, a rep for Richie tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the tabloid’s newest story about an impending divorce is also “completely false.”
