(Newser) – Paris Hilton and Benji Madden are splitting after 9 months, People reports. The hotel heiress, 27, and Good Charlotte guitarist, 29, are "just too different and they wanted different things in life," says one Hilton friend. Paris has been seen canoodling of late with former flame Stavros Niarchos. Madden, meanwhile, was spotted dancing with Nicole Richie, who dates his identical brother, Joel.
