In a report published on the New York Post, gossip columnist Cindy Adams claims Nicole Richie was spotted smoking on two separate occasions in New York City.
Richie, according to Adams, was seen smoking just outside the celeb-studded eatery DaSilvano. Clad in black jeans and a waistcoat, Nicole Richie was with a young girl and a middle-aged woman. The trio were seen boarding a black Caddy Escalade. Nicole sat in the front seat, enjoying her cigarette.
Barely three days after she was seen smoking in Greenwich Village, the socialite and actress was said to have been caught on camera with a cigarette in hand. This time, she is with Joel Madden, her fiancé.
In a statement issued to Extra, a representative of Richie, however, belies Cindy Adams’ claims. Richie’s rep asserts that the media personality did not smoke and that she and Madden were reportedly out of the country and nowhere near New York when the alleged incidents were reported. So there’s no way that the very pregnant Richie could have been spotted outside Nobu and DaSilvano in New York. The rep said that reports that Richie has been smoking while pregnant are not only hearsay but also very “irresponsible and untrue.”
If Nicole’s camp is saying the truth, then Cindy Adams definitely needs to retire or score herself a pair of reading glasses!
