Photos of Benji Madden in Hollywood Following Split with Paris Hilton

Was Paris and Benji's Relationship Just a PR Stunt?

Benji Madden kept himself busy on the phone and hanging out with friends in LA yesterday as news broke that he and Paris Hilton had split. There was always speculation he was just a part of Paris's love for publicity, but their relationship lasted much longer than any of us had expected. So now that's over — do you think Paris and Benji's relationship was just a PR stunt?

i agree with people saying 'she was envious of what nicole and joel have' but i also think that all hollywood hookups are random so i didn't think this was much different. i also...and god ill prolly get criticized for this: but just cause their public persona is one thing--she and he could really have been a match in their public persona. i hate paris and the attention whore she is--but i think that she puts on one face for the paps/media and would like to think she has another when she's in private

I remember when Good Charlotte's song "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous" came out and seeing who Benji and Joel ended up dating, it seemed kinda ironic (especially Benji and Paris). I had thought the song was about people like her, but I guess love is blind...or maybe it was just a publicity thing. :P

Paris thinks she's ahead of PR but sorry NO. People are smart these days, unless you have something to offer (talent), people will question why are you in the papers?

I agree with Jacqui. I think that Paris saw the life that Nicole has now and she wanted the same thing - I mean, isn't it coincidental that Paris and Benji hooked up shortly after Harlow was born? I think Paris just isn't ready to settle down and have babies like she claims she is. And Benji just wanted to get some tail.P.S. Isn't it funny that before Paris he dated Sophie Monk, who portrayed Paris in Date Movie? How ironic. He must have a thing for blondes. I don't know what they see in him.

I think that Paris wanted what Nicole was having and thought it would be fairytale perfect if she dated the other one. It didn't work out. Just shoes that she's dumb and full of idle fantasies. Stupid girl. And yeah, Nicole sh*ts all over Paris and always has.

Kiki, what are you doing here? Busted! :rotfl: I was going to say that I think it wasn't just for PR, because if it had been, they would have gone out on double dates with the brother and Nicole. Then they would have gotten even more attention. But what the heck do I know, everything is fake now a days.To the previous poster, NIcole has more credibility that Paris. She became known because of Paris, but I think people have more respect for her and P knows it. Remember, she's in on the joke. :rotfl:

Why do people keep thinking Paris is trying to "weasel back into Nicole's life". I despise Paris, but like it or not, she is much more popular and well known than Richie is. Just because that woman had a child, does not make her more popular nowadays

Isn't it ironic that these pic's are the cutest I've ever scene of him?

I think it's really funny that the people that think it was real gave it more votes than those that don't, yet the only people that are commenting are the ones that think it was fake.

Exactly. Like the kind of male attention she probably got from that dude from the Hills who she apparently spent an hour in a toilet cubicle with back in August. Maybe she was just telling him all about Benji and how they were going to settle down and have kids. And then she gave him crabs as a souvenir.

Agree with Kiki--I think part of her (and maybe Benji too) wanted to have some of what Nicole and Joel had. I was suprised she and Nicole weren't seen together more.I think Paris really liked Benji but she's probably bored with him and needs different male attention.

I think they really cared about each other but it just didn't work out.

I actually saw them at DisneyWorld together once and they seemed to be very much a couple and although there were a lot of ordinary people snapping away, there were no paps so I think it was real.
