“RHOC” star Nicole James has a history with Kid Rock. According to Distractify, Nicole and Kid Rock likely linked up around 2007, following the rocker’s split from Pamela Anderson in 2006. Kid Rock and Anderson’s short marriage ended badly, with the musician blasting his ex-wife in a 2007 interview with Rolling Stone. “I just want to get past it,” he said of the drama of his divorce. “After this, I’m done talking about it.”
Around the time she dated Kid Rock, Nicole fit the bill for being a musician’s girlfriend, as she favored an edgier style years ago. Redditors on r/realhousewives compared a photo of the “RHOC” newbie from 2003 to a current snap, showing a definite departure from Nicole’s ultra-glam appearance nowadays. One commenter said Nicole’s former bleach-blonde look favored Kid Rock’s former wife Anderson. Though Nicole’s romance with Kid Rock may sound high profile, the singer was romantically linked to several women in the later 2000s following his breakup with his Playboy model wife, including Paris Hilton, Danish model May Anderson and country music star Kellie Pickler, according to Ranker. Whatever history Nicole had with the rock star, it was likely only a fling.
