Former reality show star Nicole Richie is reportedly planning to pay tribute to her late godfather Michael Jackson by naming her new child after him. The adopted daughter of singer Lionel Richie remained close to Jackson until he died of a cardiac arrest last month. Friends of Nicole claim she's determined to mark his death by giving her second child his name -- Michael for a boy and Michelle for a girl. A source tells Star magazine, "Nicole is devastated by Michael's death. She loved him and it happened so suddenly. She wasn't planning on naming the baby after him, but she thinks it's fitting now that he's gone." Richie is married to rocker Joel Madden.
