For several months, we’ve been hearing that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are headed for divorce.

All the tell-tale signs were there: Nicole stopped wearing her wedding ring; she and Joel were living in separate homes; and they were very rarely seen together in public.

When Nicole and Joel put their home up for sale, it seemed to be the nail in the coffin for their five-year marriage.

Now, however, it looks like these two might have pulled an about-face, as sources say they’ve been spotted out and about in LA, and both of the Maddens have been wearing their wedding rings.

Radar Online is reporting that Richie and Madden are officially back together after coming out on the other side of a rough patch that nearly ended their marriage.

The couple was most recently seen at a U2 concert in Los Angeles, and onlookers say they were all smiles.

Not exactly a formal announcement of reconciliation, but then, they never formally announced that they were separated!

So there you have it, folks. Even the most dead-in-the-water celeb couples can turn things around if both parties are willing to put in the work.

Hopefully, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are watching and taking notes.
