Hilary Duff received a chilly reception from ex-BF Joel Madden and his alleged baby mama Nicole Richie when the former ‘Lizzie McGuire’ star sat just a few tables over from the gushing couple last week at L.A’s Chateau Marmont. , “There was no greeting, no acknowledgement,” claims a spy in attendance.

“Nicole used to hate it when Joel talked to Hilary and got really jealous,” says a pal.

“Hilary has five businesses and tours around the world. Nicole is just an ex-reality star. She wants to be taken seriously, not just be known for doing nothing,” says a Hilary friend.
