You better hide your boyfriends, ladies, because Paris Hilton is single again.
After what seemed like a whirlwind romance, Hilton, 27, and Benji Madden, 29, have called it quits. Despite the sudden split, Hilton's publicist Alanna McCarthy told The Associated Press Wednesday that the two "remain very good friends."
We were first introduced to "Parenji" in Febuary of 2008, when the couple announced their union and became seemingly inseparable. They sported matching rings, engraved with their respective love's initials, and canoodled in front of every camera. Hilton even accompanied the Good Charlotte guitarist on tour around the world with his band.
But all was not well in paradise. According to US Weekly Madden was "over-protective" and "controlling." There was tension between Madden and Hilton's friends, and albeit the two "are still in love, they felt it would be better to just be friends," a source told the magazine.
Hilton was spotted flirting it up with ex Stavros Niarchos at club Mokai. According to a source, they were nuzzling all night." But US Weekly reports that nothing happened and that Hilton and Niarchos are strictly platonic.
Could there be a possible reunion for Hilton and Madden before the year is out? And if these two crazy kids couldn't make it, what hope does that leave for the rest of us?
