Cameron Diaz 'persuades' Nicole Richie to forgive

Cameron Diaz has "persuaded" Nicole Richie to give Joel Madden another chance.

The 'Sex Tape' star has reportedly been able to dissuade the 33-year-old television personality from filing for divorce from the musician.

A source said: "Cam has persuaded Nicole to stop her divorce proceedings for now.

"Ever since Cam got married, Nicole's been turning to her for advice."

The 42-year-old beauty - who is married to Joel's brother Benji Madden - is also getting support from her husband, who wants the pair to make each other their priority.

The source added to Life & Style magazine: "Benji loves Nicole and Joel and thinks they can work it out.

"If they just spend more time together and stop making their careers a priority."

Meanwhile, Nicole - who has seven-year-old daughter Harlow and five-year-old son Sparrow with Joel - previously revealed she first set Cameron and Benji up.

She shared: "Yes. I'm going to take responsibility for everything! I approve of anything that's going to make Benji happy.

"I am a devoted sister-in-law. I'm happy for anyone who is happy, and I want everyone to be surrounded with love."
