Paris Hilton: Romance With Benji Madden Not a Prank

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, "On Air with Ryan Seacrest," Paris told Ryan she is not pulling a prank and definitely dating Benji, the twin brother of Nicole Richie’s boyfriend and babydaddy, Joel Madden.

"No, it’s not a hoax. We’re really happy," Paris told Ryan.

Ryan asked Paris if it was a hoax, as she 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, Paris said only time will tell.

"You’ll have to see, but I’m very happy," the celebutante replied. "I feel very safe and really secure. He’s an amazing guy."

Paris also admitted that her parents are fond of Benji.

"They really do [like him]. They’re really happy for me," she said.

Paris said she and Benji have "been friends for a couple years now," after Ryan asked if the romance happened suddenly.

She also revealed that the necklace she has been wearing with Benji’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."
