    Nicole Richie Nicked by Paparazzo

    Nicole Richie's lucky she didn't have any babies on board.

    The celebutante is nursing what appear to be minor injuries after her Range Rover was dinged by a pursuing paparazzo in Beverly Hills.

    "She was rear-ended," BHPD Lt. Tony Lee tells E! News, adding that the accident occurred around 2 p.m. "There was a complaint of pain injury. She told officers at the scene that she's going to seek her own medical treatment."

    Benji Madden was spotted on scene comforting her after the rough ride. But Richie, who just welcomed her second child last month, apparently left boyfriend Joel Madden home with newborn Sparrow and Harlow.

    No ambulances were called and the damage to the vehicles was described as minimal (scratches and dents on the bumper), though Richie appeared to be crying afterward while sitting in the driver's seat, talking to Joel. Her mom, Brenda, showed up while police were still there and got into the car, apparently to console her daughter.

    When asked if Nicole was OK, she replied, "No, no she's not."

    The shutterbug behind the bust-up was cited for being an unlicensed driver and his jeep was impounded.
