Soul superstar Lionel Richie has promised to look after his daughter NICOLE as she battles to stop losing weight.

The HELLO singer is worried about THE SIMPLE LIFE star, and puts her current condition down to the physical symptoms of extreme exhaustion.

He says, "I know what's happening with her right now, she's a nervous wreck. She's like her father, you can either blow up or you can shrink away.

"And right now, she's just feeling a little bit of the pressures of her new business. So she will be all right. Dad is on the case."
