Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner have split up.
Brody initiated the break-up earlier this week and Nicole agreed that it was best to call time on their two-month romance.
Nicole's spokesperson confirmed: "They are no longer dating but remain close friends."
A source close to the 'Simple Life' star added: "Nicole just wants to be single right now.
"She felt it was a mistake to jump into a relationship so soon after her break-up with Adam Goldstein back in May."
Earlier this week, it was claimed Brody was so concerned about Nicole's health he wanted to be her live-in cook.
Nicole has been at the centre of eating disorder rumours for months after shrinking down to a tiny size 00 and he was reportedly determined to ensure she eats properly.
A source said: "Brody thinks Nicole is vulnerable. He wants to move in and cook for her."
Meanwhile, Nicole has slammed rumours she was admitted to a rehab clinic to be treated for an eating disorder.
The furious star posted a personal message on her MySpace page saying: "I did not check myself into an eating disorder rehab. I do not have an eating disorder, and I don't know how many times I have to say it."
