Paris Hilton’s relationship with Good Charlotte’s Benji Madden is not a faux-mance, the heiress said on Friday.
During an interview with KIIS-FM’s morning show, Hilton told Secrest she is not pulling a prank and definitely dating Madden, the twin brother of Nicole Richie’s boyfriend and baby-daddy, Joel Madden.
“No, it’s not a hoax. We’re really happy,” Hilton said.
Seacrest suspected a hoax because Hilton recently stepped out with a fake guru as part of Ashton Kutcher’s new prank show, “Pop Fiction.”
When asked if she was falling in love with the rocker, Hilton said only time will tell.
“You’ll have to see, but I’m very happy,” the Hilton said. “I feel very safe and really secure. He’s an amazing guy.”
She also admitted that her parents are fond of Madden.
“They really do (like him). They’re really happy for me,” she said.
Hilton said she and Madden have “been friends for a couple years now,” after Seacrest asked if the romance happened suddenly.
She also revealed that the necklace she has been wearing with Madden’s initial was bought by the Good Charlotte member himself.
“That was a very special present,” she said. “It’s very nice. He’s really sweet.”
