Nicole Richie is wearing her heart on her sleeve... literally! The fashionista, and wife of former Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, knows that sometimes clothes just speak louder than words, so when met with endless divorce talk, Richie fired back with fashion and let the world know that she's still "Mrs. Madden!"

Rumors began swirling this year that Richie and Madden were heading toward divorce, after the former Simple Life star was spotted out sans wedding ring and moving vans were seen outside the couple's Los Angeles home. But Richie just put all those rumors to bed with her latest Instagram selfie! Yesterday, the reality star posted a snapshot of herself, rocking a sweatshirt that read "Mrs. Madden," hushing all the haters that were saying that she was no longer a Mrs.

The wifey sweatshirt was apparently a gift from a few dear friends, according to Entertainment Tonight. "I know Instagram speaks louder than words," Richie wrote in her photo caption, tagging her generous buddies. "Thank you for keeping me warm and never letting me forget who I am. #TheMrs." Now, that's how you shut down the rumor mill!

When the couple wed back in December of 2010, the over-the-top lavish bash made headlines for its elephant attendee, star-studded guest-list, and Richie's custom-made Marchesa gown. She definitely tops our list of favorite celeb winter brides, after all! So, we didn't want to believe our ears when we first heard the gossip of separation between Richie and her rock-and-roll hubby. But thankfully, the too-cool couple is just as strong as ever. Now, who wants one of those sweatshirts? They'd make for some pretty epic getting-ready photos!
