Britney Spears could be set to trump hotel heiress Paris Hilton - she is reportedly dating the socialite's ex, Benji Madden.
The Toxic hitmaker is said to have grown close to the Good Charlotte rocker after they were introduced to each other by Spears' manager Larry Rudolph following Madden's break up from Hilton, according to reports in the U.S.
A source tells In Touch Weekly magazine that the pair shared dinner at a Los Angeles hotel, and have seen each other several times since.
The unnamed source adds: "They've been on a few dates. She appears to like Benji a lot, and he seems to really like her."
Madden split from Hilton last month (Nov08) after a nine-month relationship.
