Nicole Richie and Joel Madden Have Twitter Feud Over Fancy Pillows

Nicole Richie Joel Madden

Pillow fight! Newlyweds Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got into a cute little tiff on Twitter this week over a fairly soft topic: pillows. “Do you ever look at your credit card bill & ask your wife how the hell she could spend 3 thousand dollars on pillows?” Madden asked his followers. “I do. I mean can’t we just go to Target and get our pillows???” Richie, who was busy taking in the fall collections at Paris Fashion Week, playfully responded to her hubby, writing, “That’s why I ignore your calls.” But Madden wasn’t going down without a fight. “Needless to say the pillows are going back to the expensive ass pillow store. Hope she likes the Target pillows I’m putting in their place,” later adding, “I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes.” Unfortunately for the Good Charlotte rocker, it looked like Twitter was on Team Richie in this domestic diss — Madden wrote that while the pillows were “already on their way back to the store,” he was “getting attacked by angry kids on Twitter.” Hey, you can’t put a price on a good night’s sleep! —Kate Hogan

It’s her hard earned money she can buy her pillow anywhere she pleases. If she wants expensive pillows and can still afford to feed her kids and pay her bills then thats her business. If he doesn’t like the type of pillows he doesn’t have to sleep on them.

Doesn’t matter how much they make, but it seems like he works very hard to earn with all the touring he does. Nicole needs to appreciate that more. Just keep the money & invest it. You never know what’s going to happen in the future.

I’m on his side too!

Just My Opinion on

Buckwheat Hust Pillows are the best! You can mold them for neck support, and it will be the exact same way when you wake. They are also very cool in temperture also, if your one that sweat during the night.

From a person who does like to sleep on very nice pillows (and sheets for that matter) I say spend the $3k. If I could, I would! They make the $$$ to do it, then they should damn well do it!

I think it is cute and they can do what they want with their money. They make enough and they donate enough so what is the problem? Go Nicole!!! lol

Why should they be ashamed? It’s all relative. $3,000 pillows to them probably equate to $30 pillows to me! But I would be p*ssed if someone returned my $30 pillows while I was away in Paris buying $30,000 outfits!! Leave her pillows alone, Joel!

I’m on his side, but if I was Nichole I’d be avoiding his calls too. $3000 for pillows. I wish I had $30 for pillows.

I dont see anything wrong in that as they can afford it and they are nice couple that givse to charity always, bot in kind and money. Americans please, to them it was like spending $30 on pillow, who knows we all can do the same if we can afford it. Love you Mr & Mrs Madden. Beautiful family.Stay blessed.

a little perspective: half the world doesn’t have a toilet – or decent water. $3000 could drill a well that a village could share.
