Singer Lionel Richie says his TV and film star daughter, Nicole, is losing weight due to stress not illness.
He blamed pressures of show business for her weight loss and assured the celebrity tabloid show, "Dad is on the case."
The R&B protege has repeatedly denied having an eating disorder even though she is much thinner than she was during the last season of Fox TV's "The Simple Life."
Fox canceled the show after the third season, but "Simple Life" producers say they plan to go ahead with a fourth season and shop it to other networks.
