Nicole Richie has slammed rumours she has entered a rehabilitation facility to treat an eating disorder.
Media reports on Monday (25SEP06) claimed The Simple Life star checked herself into rehab, but she was photographed on Tuesday (26SEP06) strolling with boyfriend BRODY JENNER in Malibu, California.
Richie posted the following message on her official MySpace page saying, "Contrary to CNN's false accusations, I did not check myself into an eating disorder rehab.
"I don't know why or how this rumour started, but I am home, in LA, and very happy. I do not have an eating disorder, and I don't know how many times I have to say it.
"I've repeated myself so many times, I feel like a broken record. Whoever started this rumour is evil and mean, but it's not true. I am happy, and healthy, and living my life."
