Nicole Richie has reportedly spent over 18,000 bucks on her designer handbag addiction.
The 26-year-old star - who recently gave birth to daughter Harlow, her first child with fiance Joel Madden - is so obsessed with Balenciaga's handbag range she has one in every color.
A source close to Nicole said: "She just feels like they go with every outfit she wears - whether it be in the day or at night. She likes the Part Timer bags, which cost $1500 each, the Weekender ones which cost a fortune and the City bags too.
"In total she has 12 Balenciaga bags, and has spent a small fortune.
Nicole isn't the only celebrity to have an obsession with expensive bags.
Spice Girls star Victoria Beckham loves Hermes' Birkin bag so much she has reportedly spent $112,000 on the accessory. The bags, which come in a variety of colors and sizes, are so popular they have a long waiting list for customers wanting to purchase them.
