Is Brit Dating Benji?

21 Dec 2008

Singer rumoured to be seeing Paris' ex

BRITNEY SPEARS is rumoured to be dating her former BFF PARIS HILTON's ex beau BENJI MADDEN.

The singer is said to have grown close to the Good Charlotte rocker after they were introduced to each other by her manager LARRY RUDOLPH, who has been helping her to find a new suitor, according to US tabloid reports.

In Touch Weekly magazine reported the pair shared dinner at a Los Angeles hotel, and have seen each other several times since, with an unnamed source adding, "They've been on a few dates. She appears to like Benji a lot, and he seems to really like her."

But Spears' publicist Holly Shakoor has rubbished the reports.

She says: "The claims made by In Touch are completely false. There is not an ounce of truth to any of it."

Madden split from socialite Paris last month after a nine-month relationship.
