Rocker Joel Madden has laughed off reports he’s set to wed fiancee Nicole Richie this month, insisting they “haven’t even started” to plan their nuptials.
The Good Charlotte star announced in February that he had proposed in secret last year, and recent reports suggested the couple will tie the knot in Santa Barbara, California this autumn.

New rumors have since swirled, alleging the stars will exchange vows later this month – but Madden is adamant they are “absolutely not” marrying in the coming weeks.

Speaking to, he adds, “We haven’t even started planning.”

Madden admits the couple is in no rush to become man and wife and he’s currently focusing his thoughts on his band’s current U.S. tour and their upcoming European trek.
