Audrina Patridge Not Dating Benji Madden

Audrina Patridge

The Hills star takes to her blog to clear up rumors.

One wonders if blogs will eventually threaten the livelihood of many a publicist. First Lindsay Lohan covers all her own press issues on Myspace, now we have another incident of Audrina Patridge combating rumors on her own official blog. The rumor in question is that Audrina and Good Charlotte rocker (and Paris Hilton ex-boyfriend) Benji Madden have moved their relationship status up to dating. Audrina’s rebuttal is pretty clear: "I’m getting a lot of calls today about a story that ran in a New York paper saying that I am now in a ‘romantic’ relationship with Benji Madden. I find it highly amusing, since I haven’t seen him since December. I think Benji is a sweetheart and we’re good friends, but we are definitely NOT dating! Just wanted to clear that up!"

So the star isn’t dating Benji Madden. Are she and Justin Bobby broken up (like we kinda hope they are?) Is everything completely straight with the LC-Justin Bobby hookup rumors? Who knows but one thing is for sure, there promises to be plenty of drama on The Hills when the show returns for another (and possibly final?) season.
