Bachelor Behavior? Inside Married Man Joel Madden's Night With Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe — And Without Wife Nicole Richie!
The Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe has plenty of eligible bachelors at her feet, but she was recently spotted out with a married man!
A new report in Star Magazine claims that the 29-year-old reality star and Nicole Richie's rocker husband, Joel Madden, had a very cozy encounter at L.A.'s House of Blue on June 4.
Joel and his brother, Benji Madden, who is married to Cameron Diaz, were headlining the Imagine Ball event that night and the source tells the magazine, "There wasn't any buzz beforehand that Kaitlyn would be attending."
"It seemed like she wanted to go as incognito as possible, almost as if getting her hooks into Joel was her main mission of the night."
After the Maddens' performance, the two brothers made their way into the VIP area where Bristowe, who has gotten a lot of backlash after having sex with a contestant on this season's The Bachelorette, was waiting.
"Joel strolled over to say hello, then they shared a big hug," says the eyewitness.
After the duo allegedly moved away from the crowd and into a dark corner of the bar, they engaged in conversation "for quite some time," the insider tells Star.
"Kaitlyn was being super flirty, reaching out to touch his arm as they chatted. They clearly had a lot of chemistry." Madden and Bristowe were not spotted leaving the club together, but the eyewitness tells the magazine, "Kaitlyn wore a cat-who-ate-the canary smile."
"I wouldn't be surprised if she gave him her number, or even if they made plans to meet up later," the source adds.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Madden, 36, and his wife of five years, 33-year-old Richie, have been on the rocks lately, and recently moved into a new home in Beverly Hills in attempts to salvage their marriage.
Although the parents of daughter Harlow, 7, and son Sparrow, 5, have not officially filed for divorce, sources say that the end could be in sight.
