The Voice coach Joel Madden is looking to move to Australia with his wife and kids. Nicole Richie is currently visiting Joel in Sydney.
"We are looking at schools and we are talking about maybe leasing a place for the next year,' Joel said.
With the success of The Voice, it looks like Joel might be spending a fair bit of time here. The series, which has been getting well over 2 million viewers per night, has already been renewed for next year.
Joel says living in Australia feels more free than the US, where his fame can be overwhelming.
"The kids, those are the only ones that I'm really protective of. One place that actually respects that in the world is Australia, which I love.'
"I'm loving it because usually I don't have the kids here," Madden said. "I love the light. I love the space. I love that, unlike LA, if you want to find good food and space, you don't have to drive to it. Life is easy living here."
"Good times in Sydney last night. Went to a Rugby game. No pads, No helmets, just balls. Next weekend it's AFL," Joel Tweeted.
Joel and Nicole have been spotted at Bondi Icebergs for an exclusive party on Thursday, and watching the Waratahs play the Bulls at Allianz Stadium on Friday night.
