The Simple Life star Nicole Richie and her fiance, "DJ AM" Adam Goldstein, have split up. Her publicist Cindy Guagenti confirmed, "They have called off the engagement," saying the decision was mutual.

Nicole, 24, and DJ AM, 32, announced their engagement in February after dating for a year.

Nicole told People magazine, "He had a talk with my dad (asking to marry me) and my dad started crying. I’m looking forward to marriage. Your name changes, which will be exciting."

In June, DJ AM said, "I absolutely want to start a family with her. Nicole is one of the funniest people I know she’s my best friend."
