After Nicole was arrested for a DUI she was seen hanging out with her ex DJ AM. That doesn't mean anything, of course. Nicole is with Joel Madden, and she and DJ AM are just friends. But he may be hanging out with her for more than just her friendship and sparkling personality. It turns out he's attracted to her fame as well. So much that he's asking friends to find him another famous girlfriend. Here's more:

DJ AM - real name, Adam Goldstein - doesn't miss his ex-girlfriend, the anorexic and pill-popping Nicole Richie. But he does miss her fame. Goldstein has been quietly asking friends in Los Angeles to "set him up with someone who has a name," said a friend. "Basically, he knows he can charge a lot more when he is attached to a famous girlfriend. His rates have had to go way down since he split up with Nicole."

That sounds pretty pathetic. We always thought he was the nice guy and good influence for Nicole. Maybe she's better off without him. Besides, it looks like she's doing better anyway. She spent some time in Laguna Beach this weekend with friends and even took some time out to eat! For more pics just
