THROWBACK FAB: Nicole Richie & Mom Brenda Harvey Richie Post Childhood Pics
Nicole Richie was in a nostalgic mood this week as she revealed some rare photos from her childhood...and with adoptive parents (who are now divorced) Lionel & Brenda Harvey Richie.
Check the pics inside...
Wreckless socialite turned cleaned-up mom Nicole Richie has been posting a few rare photos this week that gave us a peek into her lavish childhood. She tweeted the above pic and asked if it was too late to enter "Toddlers & Tiaras." Ha! They did love to dress alike it seems.
Her mom, Brenda Harvey Richie, was married to her dad Lionel Richie when they took Nicole in at the age of 3 after her birth parents couldn't care for her. Brenda & Lionel legally adopted her when she was 9. Nicole often talked about how once Brenda & Lionel divorced, they turned to giving her gifts and money and "too much freedom" in order to keep her happy. And we saw what type of teen/20-something she became. But now that she's a mom and wife (to Joel Madden), she also says it's led her to be a much more strict mom (she's uber strict about Harlow & Sparrow's eating habits & behavior):
Brenda also got in on the tweeting and posted a few pics of her own.
And even this rare throwback pic with Lionel, Michael Jackson and their friends.
Good to see Nicole in pulled together mommy mode these days.
