Nicole Richie, Joel Madden buy home in Beverly Crest


Fashion designer Nicole Richie and musician Joel Madden have bought a home in the Beverly Crest area for $6.7 million.

They made the deal outside the Multiple Listing Service, but public records confirm their purchase and ownership as reported by Variety.

Set on a half-acre behind ivy-covered walls and tall hedges, the contemporary home was built in 1957 and contains four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 5,515 square feet of living space, according to tax records. There’s a two-car attached garage and a swimming pool.


Richie, 33, gained fame as a television personality for her time on the series “The Simple Life” (2003-07). She appears in and produces the current series “Candidly Nicole.”

Madden, 36, is a singer with Good Charlotte and the Madden Brothers.

The property, which was once owned by actor Jack Nicholson, sold in 1999 for $1.75 million. Nicholson sold the house in 1991 for $1.925 million.
