Sandra Bullock and Halle Berry aren’t the only newly single stars in Hollywood – you can now add Nicole Richie to the list.

However, Nicole’s longtime beau and father to her two children, Joel Madden, didn’t leave her for another woman – just a new gadget.

“Ladies & Gentlemen I am single,” Nicole wrote on her Twitter page on Sunday. “@JoelMadden has left me for the Ipad.”

The couple – who announced their engagement in February – is now apparently one big happy family with the new addition to the family.

Or at least, Joel is happy.

“Dear @joelmadden please stop starring at your IPAD with googely eyes while shaking it & moaning,” she Tweeted a little later.
