Paris Hilton and Benji Madden get friendly again at event

December 16, 2008

Hollywood (ChattahBox) — Paris Hilton and Benji Madden showed up at the same event for the first time since their split last night, arriving mere minutes apart for the grand opening of the Dolce & Gabbana boutique on Robertson Boulevard hosted by Rachel Bilson.

Paris was already doing interviews on the carpet, which benefited Art of Elysiumas, when former BFF Nicole Richie and Joel Madden arrived together at the event. After Nicole and Joel took their red carpet photos, they brushed right past Paris without even saying hello and headed inside for the party.

Shortly thereafter Benji arrived and it was a different story as Paris’ ex-boyfriend stopped to greet her in mid-interview and the two went inside the soiree together, where she quickly pulled him into a private corner so they could talk.

The usually publicity hungry heiress waved off photogs as the former couple chatted cozily together. After grabbing drinks at the bar, Paris quickly approached Nicole to say hi, and then she and Benji headed out to the smoking patio for some more quiet conversation.

The two looked very happy together but ultimately, Benji left the bash with Joel and Nicole. Paris stayed on to continue partying with sister Nicky and David Katzenberg. So are Benji and Paris now just good friends or was this a rekindling remains to be seen.
