Hollywood 'shamans' / 'witch doctor'
- RICHIE CALLS IN SHAMAN TO COMBAT UNLUCKY CURSE
NICOLE RICHIE has reportedly hired the services of a shaman to help
rid her of the bad luck curse she fears hangs over her. The socialite
has told friends she's convinced all her 2006 troubles, which
culminated with a pre-Christmas (06) driving under the influence
arrest, came about after someone in her social circle "hexed" her.
Determined to break the purported spell, Richie had a witch doctor
perform a $1,000 (GBP512.80) spiritual cleansing of her West
Hollywood apartment on 15 December (06), according to Life + Style
magazine. An insider tells the publication a shaman chanted, danced
and burned sage in every room of THE SIMPLE LIFE star's home for two
hours. The pal says, "She's very superstitious and believes in this
stuff. It's a very personal thing for Nicole. "Nicole believes in
curses but would never put one on anyone, not even her worst enemy."
Richie's run of bad luck in 2006 includes her split from fiance
ADAM 'DJ AM' GOLDSTEIN, a rumoured eating disorder that landed her in
a treatment centre desperate to gain weight, and the horror of
learning her beloved cat had broken its leg after plunging 10 floors
from the balcony of her apartment. 04/01/2007 03:39
