Paris Hilton & Benji Madden appear to be the hot new young Hollywood celeb couple. Benji's split from fiancee Sophie Monk has not dampened his dating spirits, as he's been spotted all over the country with Paris Hilton, People reports.

"Yes, they are dating. It's pretty serious," a source tells the magazine.

The new couple was reportedly spotted clubbing in St. Louis last weekend. Monday, they were seen holding hands shopping at Fred Segal, and later that night, headed out to Club Hyde together.

Benji has even invited his mom to lunch with Paris.

On Oscar night, the new couple was reportedly at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel, cuddling and talking.

A picture of Paris and Benji has been posted on the Madden brothers Web site, which they call a "nice little family photo," describing Paris as the "wonderful Paris."

Of course, it should be noted that Benji's twin brother (and Good Charlotte bandmate) is Joel Madden, who is dating Paris' best gal pal, Nicole Richie. Nicole and Joel recently had a baby together.
