Ever since Joel Madden and Nicole Richie got engaged, rumors have swirled about their wedding plans – but now the Good Charlotte rocker is clearing up at least one false report.
The couple are “absolutely not” getting married in June, Madden told PEOPLE Thursday at the Pampers “Dads on Diaper Duty” party in Manhattan. “We haven’t even started planning,” the rocker said.
Madden, 31 noted that he will be out on tour in the U.S. and Europe through most of the summer. But he and Richie, 28, are not in a rush to wed. Instead, they are concentrating on raising their family.
