Do you ever hear a rumor that you so wish was true, but it's so obvious that it's not? This is the perfect example.
In Touch Weekly reported that Britney Spears had taken up with Benji Madden, and that the two were now an item. The rag claimed that Brit's dad, Jamie, and her manager, Larry Rudolph, have been trying to set her up with anyone and everyone, including Chace Crawford, Michael Phelps, Jesse Metcalfe and Benji.
"Larry made phone calls, and Benji ended up being the most interested in being fixed up," In Touch claims. "He plans to make a big, splashy announcement to help publicize her tour."
Unfortunately that doesn't even seem remotely true. As you know, Benji just broke up with Paris Hilton, and the couple still seem pretty cozy.
"The claims made by In Touch are completely false," a rep for Brit told E! News. "There is not an ounce of truth to any of it."
I actually think Benji would be good for Britney. You?
