No sooner had we recovered from the collective blow to the stomach that was the annulment of Kimberly Stewart and Talan Torriero's ten day fake engagement, Bringer of Celebrity Couple Bad News Weekly, aka US magazine, deals yet another super-duper exclusive-fantastic crushing suckerpunch to believers in true attention-whore love everywhere:

Us Weekly has learned exclusively that Nicole Richie, 24, and fiance Adam "D.J. AM'" Goldstein, 32, have called it quits. "They have decided to break off the engagement," Richie's rep Cindy Guagenti confirms to Us. "The decision is mutual."

Sources tell Us Weekly that the pair, who had dated since 2003 decided to break up a few days ago. Of her planned nuptials, Richie told Us earlier this year, "I'm so happy. We're taking it slowly."

There are rumors a third party was involved in the couple's unraveling, though it wasn't a person, it was food, with a tear-soaked Richie declaring all-out war on her fiance's self-constructive eating habit. Her breaking point came when Nicole literally held back DJ AM's arm as he struggled to get a grilled cheese into his mouth, screaming, "It's either lunch or me, AM! Choose! Choose now or God be my witness I am out that door!"
