Musician-composer Lionel Richie says in Hollywood, Calif., rumors about his daughter Nicole's weight hurt him more than they do her.
"I'm more sensitive; I take it more so personal," Richie said. "I must tell you, I'm the basket case."
He said the co-star of TV's "The Simple Life" has been told the same advice all her life, but this is a reminder.
The 24-year-old reportedly fainted while shopping last week, but Lionel Richie said she was doing "great."
Lionel Richie's latest album, "Coming Home," will be released on Sept. 12.
