A new report by In Touch Weekly magazine claims that Britney Spears and Benji Madden of Good Charlotte are “dating”. More specifically, the mag cites a “source” that claims that the couple have “been on a few dates” and that Britney “appears to like Benji a lot”. While this is news that I would wholeheartedly embrace and wish were true actually sounds like a whole lotta horsepucky to me. Nonetheless, here are portions of this new report by In Touch:
Britney Spears reportedly has a new man in her life, and the lucky boy is Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden. The pair have apparently been dating since Madden split with Paris Hilton a few weeks ago, and were reportedly introduced by Spears’ manager Larry Rudolph, who has been helping her find a man. A source told In Touch Weekly that Spears and Madden met for dinner at a Los Angeles hotel suite, after Rudolph and Spears’ father Jamie made a list of potential boyfriends for the singer. “They’ve been on a few dates. She appears to like Benji a lot, and he seems to really like her,” the unidentified source said. Rudolph also reportedly called Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps, and ‘Gossip Girl’ actor Chace Crawford, but Madden was the most interested in meeting Britney. Spears recently announced a string of dates to promote her current album ‘Circus’.
Blah … this report is so full of inaccuracies that it can’t possibly be true. Absent the fact that our dear Britney can’t even blow her nose without a photo snapping a pic, when would Britney or Benji have the time for dates? Britney has been out of the country or hangin’ with Ellen DeGeneres for most of the past month or so. Tho, I must admit … it would be kinda awesome of these two did hook-up. Britney needs a nice man in her life and I can’t think of a nicer man than Benji Madden. I think they’d made a hella cute couple … it’s a shame that this fantansy will prolly never come to be.
