Nicole Richie has slammed CNN's reports and other rumors that she has entered a rehabilitation facility to treat her alleged eating disorder.
CNN reported on Monday the rail thin star checked herself into rehab, but she was photographed on Tuesday walking about the Malibu Country Mart with boyfriend Brody Jenner.
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 rumor 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 rumor is evil and mean, but it's not true. I am happy, and healthy, and living my life."
