Our dear friends at the Hollywood Grind and the journalists at CNN are both reporting an interesting piece of news about Nicole Richie.

The Simple Life star and daughter of singer Lionel Richie has been getting a lot of grief over her food aversion in recent months. Some might say she looks a bit thin. Skeletal, even. The way one envisions a malnourished, third-world refugee.

A picture is worth a few hundred words, as they say. In this one, Nicole Richie and boyfriend Brody Jenner take the plunge on Splash Mountain at Disneyland, where the much-talked-about, extremely annoying 25-year-old celebrated her birthday. The lovebirds appear to be having a blast, but we can't say the same for the dude behind them, who was apparently taken aback by Richie's alien-like figure.

The lovely Nicole Richie is apparently trying to put eating disorder rumors to rest by chowing down in front of paparazzi. She doesn't stand a chance.

The celebutante was spotted out in Malibu, Calif., on Saturday with buddy Brody Jenner stuffing her face with a huge burger and sipping smoothies. This picture is kinda gross, so we apologize if you happen to lose your lunch while Nicole inhales hers.

Emaciated she-goblin Nicole Richie and way-too-good-looking "pal" Brody Jenner (right) topped off their worthless morning with a meal at Malibu's Marmalade Café on Thursday. We bet Brody enjoyed this filling meal. Nicole's dad, Lionel Richie (left) meanwhile, took the mic recently at Festivalbar in Verona, Italy.

The legendary R&B singer has not only returned to the stage, but put his domestic life on center stage recently, giving a 20/20 interview in which he talked about his career but also discussed his concern for Nicole's loss of weight.

The budding romance between Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner may look like a typical, quickie Hollywood rebound affair that's destined to crash and burn, but don't be fooled: The pair go way back. He even predates Paris Hilton.

"I was there when (Brody) was born!" Lionel Richie, Nicole's dad, and a longtime friend of Jenner's parents, tells People. "They grew up together. To see them together now is like, ‘Where are you going with this?' But they're having a wonderful time."

Is Brody Jenner single? The Gossip may not know for sure, since his status appears to change every 12 hours, but we're doing some investigating. In the image below, taken Tuesday, Jenner and his newfound friend/companion, Nicole Richie, head to Hollywood club Privilege to celebrate Brody's 23rd birthday.

If you look closely, however, you'll see that the person holding Brody's hand is not Nicole, but perhaps the most important woman in his life â€" his mother, Linda.
