Nicole Richie is happy and healthy.

Despite recent tabloid reports claiming that the 32-year-old star is "anorexic again" and battling a "tragic" eating disorder relapse, E! News has learned that the mother of two is just fine.

"These rumors are completely false," a source close to Richie tells us.

The false eating disorder reports began swirling when Star claimed Richie weighed a mere 88 pounds and lost weight by adhering to a strict diet of sunflower seeds, celery, juice and chewing gum.

The mag also claimed Richie's "eight-month struggle" was causing marital problems with husband Joel Madden.

Meanwhile, a source tells us of Richie's fitness routine, "She loves taking hikes and walks with her dog."

Richie showed off her thin and fit physique at the 2013 American Music Awards just over a month ago in a sleek white gown with side cutouts that showed off her flat stomach.

Looking good!
