Conrad fights rumors of hookup with friend Audrina’s model boyfriend
Fans of MTV’s hit reality show The Hills are already weeping over a rift between Lauren Conrad and her friend, Audrina Patridge, but now things are taking a decidedly more serious turn. Us Magazine reports an anonymous source tipping off celeb blogger Perez Hilton to a brief fling between Conrad and Audrina’s on-again-off-again beau, Justin “Justin Bobby” Brescia. Conrad furiously denies the rumors, taking to her Myspace blog to vent her feelings about the issue where she alludes to a certain arch-nemesis who “would enjoy watching blogs and the press tear me apart”. Conrad, who has had a recently strained friendship with Patridge, ended her blog post with a message to Patridge: “"You know I didn't do this and I have never given you a reason not to trust me. Whoever is telling you these things does not have your best interest at heart. You asked me if I did this and I told you I didn't."
YourTango’s Take: Anyone who has ever had a friend make a play for your guy knows how painful this can be, especially if the relationship is as complicated as Patridge and Brescia’s appears to be. We can’t imagine this rumor is true, but we’re sure it doesn’t hurt either LC or Audrina any less. We think you two should talk this out and clear the air ASAP and we encourage anyone else in this situation to do the same.
