On The Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe has plenty of men vying for her love and affection — but she has her eyes on a different prize!
According to a new report by Star magazine, the 29-year-old was spotted flirting with Joel Madden at the Imagine Ball in LA on June 4 — thankfully the 36-year-old’s wife, Nicole Richie, 33, wasn’t anywhere in sight!

A source says there was no “buzz” about Kaitlyn attending, adding, “It seemed like she wanted to go as incognito as possible, almost as if getting her hooks into Joel was her main mission of the night.”
The pair allegedly shared “a big hug” in the VIP section before moving away from the crowd to somewhere more intimate.
“Kaitlyn was being super flirty, reaching out to touch his arm as they chatted. They clearly had a lot of chemistry,” the source says.
While they didn’t leave together, the source adds, “Kaitlyn wore a cat-who-ate-the-canary smile.”

This comes just months after an insider told In Touch Joel and Nicole are “on the brink of divorce.”
“They’ve been spending more time apart because all they do is fight when they’re together,” the insider said. “Nicole can be very forceful when she doesn’t get her way, and Joel doesn’t respond to that.”
