Los Angeles: Rocker Joel Madden has denied reports that he is set to tie the knot with his fiancee Nicole Richie this month.

The Good Charlotte star has laughed off stories mentioning he and Richie will walk down the aisle in June since they "haven`t even started" planning their nuptials, reported People magazine online.

Madden had announced in February that he had proposed to the 28-year-old socialite in secret in 2009, and recent reports suggested the couple will tie the knot in Santa Barbara, California this autumn.

New rumors have since emerged, alleging that the stars will exchange vows later this month but Madden is adamant they are "absolutely not" marrying in the coming weeks.

"We haven`t even started planning," he said.

Madden, 31, admitted the couple is in no rush to become man and wife and he`s currently focusing his thoughts on his band`s current US tour and their upcoming European trek.
