Nicole Richie has said that the claims that she has an eating disorder are ‘unfair, insulting, irresponsible’. In an interview in the latest issue of

Marie Claire

magazine, the 28-year-old mother of two said that she never had any such problem.



“I felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t. It’s extremely insulting and irresponsible. An eating disorder is serious and it’s a disease,” the

New York Daily News

quoted her as saying.



Richie sparked concern over possibility of her having eating disorder in 2006. At the time, she was captured looking extremely skinny when she was spotted in a bikini while on the beach. However, Richie said that pictures like this were out of context.



“I think when you see me in person, you see that I'm, like, five foot one. I’m a small person. When I was heavier, everyone said I was too heavy. You can’t win in the public eye and I find it really hard,” she told the mag.
