Nicole Richie has checked out of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after battling pneumonia and is at home resting, says her boyfriend Joel Madden.

“So I stepped off the plane after a month out of the country, and basically went straight to the hospital for the week,” Madden wrote on his band’s Web site on Friday. “But don’t worry all is well and we are home with no problems.”
