However, Nicole's longtime beau and father to her two children, Joel Madden, didn't leave her for another woman – just a new gadget.
"Ladies & Gentlemen I am single," Nicole wrote on her Twitter page on Sunday. "@JoelMadden has left me for the Ipad."
The couple – who announced their engagement in February – is now apparently one big happy family with the new addition to the family.
Or at least, Joel is happy.
"Dear @joelmadden please stop starring at your IPAD with googely eyes while shaking it & moaning," she Tweeted a little later.
