NICOLE Richie is desperate to quit Hollywood after she collapsed and checked into the hospital recently.
The socialite and her Good Charlotte rocker beau Joel Madden — with whom Richie raises two children — are making tentative plans to move their family to New York, according to American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“Nicole has been stressed and worn out since she gave birth to her son Sparrow in September,” a source said.
“Joel was working in Australia when Nicole first fell ill, so she was shuttling the kids back and forth to her dad Lionel’s home.
“She was overwhelmed, and during a phone call, Nicole screamed at Joel, ‘I can’t take this anymore — get me out of Hollywood!’
“Joel realizes that Nicole is buckling, and agrees that they need a major life change. Nicole wants to escape Hollywood and raise their kids in New York.
“Nicole is on the rebound now, but her bout with pneumonia was a huge wake-up call.
“Nicole realizes that both she and her family need a change of pace, schedule and scenery. She feels ditching crazy Hollywood for New York is best for everyone.”
