DJ AM and Nicole Richie Break Off Engagement

Richie, 24, and Goldstein, 33, began dating in 2004 and announced their engagement a year later in February 2005. But in early December, Richie's rep confirmed that the wedding was off.

He began dating socialite Nicole Richie in 2004 and announced their engagement a year later in February 2005. However, the couple broke up in late 2006. "The one thing that stands out about Adam is that I can be myself," Richie said after the breakup. After his breakup with Richie, Goldstein dated singer-actress Mandy Moore. He was good friends with Steve Aoki, Cory Kennedy, Samantha Ronson, John Mayer, Paris Hilton, Travis Barker and Kevin Scott

Nicole Richie is famous for a few things – schlepping around the homes of weird American families breaking stuff in The Simple Life with Paris Hilton, being so skinny that she goes transparent if she stands between you and a bright light and… OK, so those are the only two things that Nicole Richie is famous for. But she's split up with her DJ boyfriend, and that's sort of sad, isn't it?

You may remember DJ AM – Adam Goldstein – from his stint as Nicole Richie's fiance last year. But Nicole Richie and Adam Goldstein split up in December, which made Nicole Richie stop eating, get all skinny and stoop to propositioning 11-year-old boys in their front gardens.
