Via MailOnline reports:
Nicole Richie is back to skinny.
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.
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.
Nicole 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.’
These kinds of rumors are definitely dangerous, we hope that Nicole is okay. She’s been skinny for a minute and the pressures of the fashion industry will have you looking like skin and bones!
