LIONEL RICHIE: JAIL BEST PLACE FOR TROUBLED NICOLE

Singer Lionel Richie has laid down the law to his wild child Nicole - saying that jail just might do her some good!

The Grammy winner decided tough love is the best route - after his 25-year-old daughter's Dec. 11 arrest, while heading against traffic on a busy Los Angeles freeway.

"Lionel's stood behind Nicole through three arrests, drug rehab and her drastic weight loss," a family friend told The ENQUIRER.

"But enough is enough!"

Lionel held an intervention with his pot-smoking daughter last October, begging her to get treatment, said the friend.

"But all she agreed to was some outpatient medical tests. Lionel was incredibly disappointed.

"When he heard of her latest arrest, he sighed to a friend: 'Let her go to jail. It might do her some good. Maybe it will frighten some sense into her.'"
