Nicole Richie's ex-boyfriend DJ AM doesn't miss his girlfriend - but does miss her fame.
'The Simple Life' star dated DJ AM - real name Adam Goldstein - for over two years and they were engaged for nine months, but since they split Goldstein has been missing the money he made as 'Nicole Richie's other-half'.
A source told the New York Post newspaper: "Adam has been asking around for people to set him up with someone who has a name.
"Basically, he knows he can charge a lot more when he is attached to a famous girlfriend. His rates have had to go way down since he split up with Nicole."
Nicole, the adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie, has been making plenty of headlines on her own recently.
She was recently charged with driving under the influence of drugs after police stopped her driving on the wrong side of the freeway.
The 25-year-old confessed she had taken the potent painkiller Vicodin for period cramps and smoked marijuana.
Nicole has also been the subject of much public criticizm over her dramatic weight loss and her penchant for wearing real fur.
