Paris And Benji Split!
PARIS HILTON has split up with her boyfriend BENJI MADDEN.
The couple called time on their nine month romance at the beginning of the week - just days after the socialite was snapped enjoying an intimate chat with her ex-boyfriend.
Rumours of a spit have been circulating since Paris was spotted partying with ex-boyfriend Stavros Niarchos in Miami, Florida and today friends confirmed the news.
A source close to Paris said: "She is saddened by the break-up but they're just too different and they wanted different things in life. He was loyal and sweet but it was time to take a break."
Despite rumours of a reconciliation with Stavros, the source says Paris did not dump Benji to get back with her former beau.
She said: "In no way are they romantic, nor do they want to get back together."
And Vanessa Fontana, a contestant on Paris' new US reality show BFF, has also confirmed the news.
She tells Life Style magazine, "Sadly, it's true. Paris and Benji have split. I love Paris, and I just want her to be happy. I think that they'll be better as friends.
"Nobody else is involved. Paris and Benji were loyal and faithful to each other. I was with Paris in Miami, and Stavros came over to our table, and the two of them talked for literally two minutes. It was a friendly conversation. They definitely did not hook up."
