The adopted daughter of soul singer Lionel Richie, she is perhaps best known for her role in the Fox reality television series The Simple Life, alongside fellow socialite and best friend Paris Hilton. She has a daughter, Harlow Winter Kate Madden and a son, Sparrow James Midnight Madden, with boyfriend Joel Madden of Good Charlotte.
Early life and family
Nicole Richie was born Nicole Camille Escovedo in Berkeley, California. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest in November 2005, Richie stated that she doesn’t publicly identify her birth parents “for confidentiality reasons,” and that they were friends of Lionel Richie and his wife Brenda before her birth.
At first, Lionel became her guardian. Then at age 2, Nicole went to live with Richie and his wife, Brenda Harvey, who began to raise her as their daughter. When she was three years old, Nicole began attending weekly sessions with a psychotherapist and remained in therapy throughout her childhood. She was legally adopted by the Richies when she was nine. Shortly after the adoption was formalized, Lionel’s affair with another woman became public knowledge. The Richies went through a highly-publicized, bitterly acrimonious split, and as a result, indulged Nicole’s every whim. “Their way of making me happy was to say yes to everything I wanted, but I don’t think a little girl should have that much freedom,” said Richie in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine. Lionel Richie remarried following the divorce, and through him, Nicole has two younger siblings, Myles (born 1994) and Sofia (born 1998).
Richie has one godmother, Nancy Davis, daughter of Marvin Davis and mother of Brandon Davis. Richie’s godfathers are Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones. Jones said in a People magazine interview that he has “known Nicole Richie since she was a baby. She’s a very smart girl”.
In addition to figure skating, Richie studied the guitar, cello, violin, and piano. In 1986, she started kindergarten at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California where she met Paris Hilton. Richie graduated from Montclair College Preparatory School in 1999. She also studied Arts and Media for two years at the University of Arizona
“In the middle of night, the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes.”
