Nicole Richie Wins Restraining Order Against Paparazzi

Nicole Richie, 28, may (or may not) be married, but she's definitely a lot safer now that she won a restraining order against the two overzealous paparazzi who crashed into her car in early October.

Eduardo Arrivabene and Ivon Emilio Melo Miguel have been ordered to stay at least 100 yards from the budding fashion designer and her two children, Harlow, 20 months, and Sparrow, 6 weeks.

In a court statement, Richie says that the men continued to stalk her, waiting outside of her home and screaming at her "in an attempt to get a reaction." Richie also said that the constant harassment has caused her "severe emotional distress." But most importantly, she is afraid for the safety of her family, saying that she worries another accident may happen, but "this time with [Richie's] infant children in the vehicle."

We love juicy celeb gossip as much as the next person but not at the expense of anyone's safety. We're glad Nicole won this fight!

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
