Madden got in a huge fight this past Saturday (July 7) at the Beverly Hills Hotel with MTVs The Hills star, Spencer Pratt, over accusations that Pratt had bad-mouthed Richie.
But, according to In Touch Weekly magazine, the battle of the Hollywood boys was just a big misunderstanding.
Pratt tells the magazine he never said anything bad about Richie, and was actually misquoted in an interview with Details magazine some time ago, where he supposedly called Richie a skinny bþþch.
Pratt insists, Its all a misunderstanding. Ive always thought shes a really nice girl and I wouldnt call her that.
Still, the ridiculous altercation with Madden quickly escalated.
Says Pratt: I was sitting having a quiet lunch with [fiance, The Hills co-star] Heidi [Montag] when Nicole walked in and started pointing at me and then whispering to Joel. Then Joel storms over and starts shouting, You been talking shþt about my girl!
After being confronted, Pratt claims he calmly asked Madden to stop yelling at him and to not do this at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Then, according to eyewitnesses, Richie and Madden were promptly escorted out of the hotel.
