[Blind Gossip] This girl from a famous family is barely in her 30s, but it seems like she has been a celebrity forever. She’s had a few struggles in her life (dr*gs, alcohol, etc.), but one in particular has reared its ugly head yet again.
If you’ve seen photos of her lately, she looks very thin. Can’t chalk this one up to a “healthy” lifestyle or exercise or a vegan diet. This is a full-blown eating disorder. She is an*rexic. Of course she will deny it. That’s part of her disease. She has lots of responsibilities, but the girl is well under 100 lbs and is so weak from not eating that she can barely stand upright. It’s really bad. Really bad.
It’s Nicole Richie! Source: BlindGossip.com
Nicole Richie is a fashion designer and reality star and the daughter of music legend Lionel Richie. She is married to Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, and has two small children.
Nicole famously dealt with anorexia several years ago. She seemed much better over the past couple of years. Still slim, but much healthier looking.
Unfortunately, she is battling anorexia again. We knew that she had fallen well under 100 pounds, and the newest reports claim that she weighs 88 pounds. She continues to be in denial about her disease, which is not unusual for someone with an eating disorder.
Super skinny Nicole Richie ‘back down to 88lbs by living on diet of sunflower seeds, celery, juice and chewing gum’
The reality star turned designer has dropped down to 88 pounds, according to Star magazine, which was her weight in 2006 when she memorably showed off a bony frame as she jogged on a beach in a bikini.
And there’s proof in pictures: On Tuesday the 32-year-old showed off a gaunt face with a heavily defined jaw bone as she attended Antonio Berardi’s dinner in Beverly Hills.
Star claimed the daughter of Lionel Richie is ‘anorexic again.’
She has reportedly been living on a diet of sunflower seeds, celery and juices.
The LA native also allegedly uses chewing gum to stave off hunger pains.
But a friend tells MailOnline the Fashion Star judge is ‘healthy.’
The source added: ‘This is completely false, she is not anorexic.’
Still, there is no arguing she has lost a lot of weight since she looked healthy – and sexy – in a black bikini just over two years ago.
Nicole first seemed thinner than usual in June when a gold dress hung off her thin frame at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City.
In late October when she stepped out in a black dress with a plunging neckline to the Who What Wear 50 Style Stars event in West Hollywood, her chest appeared bony and her arms were very slender.
In mid November she displayed some very protruding shoulders bones while at Balthazar and Rosetta Getty’s home in Los Angeles, where she showed her support for fellow jewellery designer Sabine Ghanem.
Her waist line looked tiny and her jaw line was extremely defined.
When she walked onstage with Kelly Osbourne, her hip bones even stuck out.
In December at an Art Basel party in Miami, the cover girl looked almost skeletal next to Kim Kardashian.
It’s as if the stunner – who has two children Harlow, aged five, and Sparrow, aged four, has been shrinking.
Part of the problem Star explained, might be that husband Joel Madden is often away for work.
The musician has been a coach on The Voice in Australia.
‘Joel has always tried to keep tight tabs on her diet,’ the source added. ‘But since he’s gone so often, no one’s ever really sure how much she’s eating anymore.
‘He is extremely worried about her. He tells her that she needs to focus on her health for the sake of the children, because they need their mother.
‘When Joel confronts her on how she needs to ingest more nutrients, she says the juices give her all she needs.’
In 2010, when Nicole looked more full figured, she told Marie Claire magazine, ‘I felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t.
‘It’s extremely insulting and irresponsible. An eating disorder is serious and it’s a disease.’
Below is a photo of Nicole Richie taken a couple of weeks ago. It may be unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t… but Nicole Richie does have an eating disorder. We wish her well in her recovery.
Kudos to Ivee, who was first with the correct guess.
