Nicole Richie kept herself very covered up with a pillow being led into LAX with Joel last night. The two were on their way up to Calgary, Canada, where Joel is scheduled to play a show tonight, the only problem is that Nicole is due in court in LA tomorrow morning. The (sigh) pregnant starlet hoped that she would be able to postpone the date by sending her lawyer in to meet with the commissioner today and ask for continuance until August 5. Nicole's reasoning was that her expert witness, Dr. Terence McGee, isn't available until then. Unfortunately for Nic, the request was denied, so I guess it's right back on the plane and into the courthouse for her. Hey, maybe this will finally force her to make a statement about the whole surprising pregnancy thing?

Update: According to People, the trial will be postponed at least a day. Also, Nicole does not have to attend.
