Joel Madden puts rumours of marriage troubles to rest in an upcoming interview with 60 Minutes, spilling the beans on how he convinced (read: begged!) his wife Nicole Richie to go on a first date with him.
Last week Nicole added fuel to reports that she and Joel are "living separate lives" when she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live without her wedding ring, but in a teaser clip for an interview airing on 60 Minutes on Sunday night, it appears the Madden-Richie clan are doing fine.
"He's very romantic," Nicole tells interviewer Liz Hayes in the promo clip, meanwhile her dad Lionel Richie admits his first impression of Joel was that he was "no Prince Charming".
In the candid interview (watch part of it in the clip above), Joel reveals how he put the moves on Nicole to win her over, even though she wasn't interested in him when they first met.
What was the singer's winning pick up line? "Just give me a shot! Just give me a shot. One date!" Smooth.
