Joel Rueben Madden (born Joel Rueben Combs; March 11, 1979 in Maryland) is an American singer, record producer,actor, DJ, and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, best known as the lead vocalist for the pop punk band Good Charlotte. His father left the family when he was 16 and never saw his father after that, so he changed his last name from “Combs” to their mother’s maiden name, “Madden”. This left only Joel’s mother to care for the four children. Obviously that caused a lot of financial problems leading to the eviction from their home. He and his older twin brother, Benji Madden, went to a Beastie Boys concert and decided that they wanted to start a band. When they graduated in 1997, his mother gave him and Benji a pair of airline tickets to California to go to a club where all the good punk rock bands actually started. When they got back, they were more determined than ever. They teamed up with two school friends and Billy – and Good Charlotte was born.
The fabulous foursome trekked from the parking area to the sandy Pacific shoreline in Malibu while proceeding to pick out the perfect spot to set down their belongings before romping around the beautiful beachfront.
Always keeping thing fashionable, Miss Richie rocked an orange pantsuit as she tossed a ball around with her kids before taking them down by the water to play – with little Harlow clad in a too cute two piece swimsuit.
The Malibu excursion comes just ahead of an all new episode of Nicole’s show “Fashion Star” tomorrow night (April 10) at 10ET/9CT on NBC
