Amid multiple reports that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were headed for divorce, the biggest sign of trouble appeared when moving trucks were spotted at their L.A. home on May 1. Now, a source close to the once-happy couple tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that "divorce is imminent." Click through these 8 photos to learn why the Project Runway star has allegedly kicked Madden to the curb, for good!
"Nicole has finally had enough of Joel and she is only interested in moving on now with her life," a source close to the couple tells Radar. "She told him to leave the house and Joel has complied."
"They have been living as roommates for a very long time now. The passion fizzled out from their marriage years ago and people close to them know that they have both been doing their own thing for quite some time."
"They tried to work out their differences for the sake of their kids," the source says.
"However, things took a nasty turn last month when they were in counseling and it became apparent that Joel had no desire to put any effort forward to change," claims the source.
According to the insider, Madden, 36, "refuses to work on their problems and he will not admit any wrongdoing."
The couple married in 2010 and are parents to Harlow, 7, and Sparrow, 4.
"It looks like they are going to try separation," the source tells Radar. "But ultimately, Nicole is done and unless Joel really grows up and puts forth the effort, divorce is imminent."
