Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are NOT on the verge of divorce, despite a RadarOnline report that repeats the endless (and consistently wrong) tabloid rumors about the couple. Gossip Cop can bust the latest version, too.

According to the webloid’s source, Richie and Madden are “closer than ever” to divorcing. “Nicole and Joel are going through a very tough time right now and their friends do not think that their marriage is going to survive,” claims the RadarOnline insider, adding, “Joel is saying that he cannot take it anymore and that neither of them are happy when they are together.”

The outlet says the couple is “at odds” over their family’s future and what will happen with children Harlow and Sparrow. “Everyone is mainly concerned with their children and Joel has not been actively participating in their lives,” the source tells RadarOnline, before going on to criticize Richie for being too thin and not smiling enough.

Last week, when In Touch became the 7,000th outlet to claim Richie and Madden are having problems and will get divorced, Gossip Cop exclusively debunked it. RadarOnline is no closer to the truth. A source exclusively close to the situation tells Gossip Cop there’s “no truth at all” to the report.
