Nicole Richie Kills The Love That Once Was

Maybe it was her sunglass preference that killed the romance for DJ AM. A phone line will be soon open to take you calls in this time of crisis.

Nicole Richie and her fiance, Adam Goldstein, have called off their nine-month engagement.

Richie’s publicist, Cindy Guagenti, confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the couple have split. She said the breakup had been in the works for several days, but would not give any further details. The split was first reported by “Access Hollywood” and Us Weekly magazine.

Richie, co-star of the reality series “The Simple Life,” and Goldstein, a professional club DJ who goes by the name DJ AM, had dated for a year before becoming engaged last February.

Hilton announced in October that she was ending her own engagement to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis.

Somewhere right now, Paris is laughing.
