Early Life

Nicole Camille Escovedo was born in Berkeley, California on Sept 21, 1981. Her biological parents suddenly realized they did not have the financial wherewithal to care for their new kid, so they let her grow up with Lionel Richie.

Although Richie first served as her legal guardian, he and his wife Brenda Harvey adopted her when she was nine years old.

However, Brenda and Lione’s family stability was short-lived, as they went through an agonizing divorce procedure shortly after.

Although they were dealing with serious challenges, the two parents did their best to treat Nicole during their divorce.

Nicole met several high-profile celebrities and Lionel Riche’s deep involvement in the music industry. After graduating from a preparatory school in 1999, Richie enrolled at the University of Arizona.

During her studies in arts and media, she met celebrities such as Kourtney Kardashian and Luke Walton.

After two years, Nicole realized she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do with her knowledge, so she dropped out and returned to California.


Nicole Richie teamed with a childhood friend, Paris Hilton, on the new reality TV show “The Simple Life” in 2003. The idea was, well, straightforward.

The two females were abandoned on a tiny farm in rural Arkansas, where they discovered a way of life and civilization that was completely strange to them.

The show was a big hit and lasted until a troublesome fifth season had several issues.

Nicole Richie’s best-selling book “The Truth About Diamonds” was released in 2005. Her book was a New York Times best-seller, and there was even talk of turning it into a TV series at one time. She published another novel, “Timeless,” in 2010.

Richie is active in the fashion sector outside of television. She has appeared in several blogs and periodicals, and she is also a model who has worked with Vogue and Elle.

She has landed brand endorsement partnerships with Bongo Jeans, Urban Decay, and Jimmy Choo. She has also designed a variety of apparel, handbag, and jewelry brands.
