No sooner did photos leak on the Web of Paris Hilton partying in Miami with her old beau, handsome Greek billionaire Stavros Niarchos, comes the news that Paris and Benji Madden are way over.

After nine boring months of might-as-well-be-married-and/or-dead togetherness, Paris and Benji officially ended it, Hilton's rep confirmed to Us Weekly.

Nicole_richie "Even though they are still in love, they felt it would be better to just be friends," a source close to Hilton, 27, tells Us.

Apparently, Paris perceived Benji as overprotective and controlling. He didn't get along with any of her friends who thought Paris had changed since being with him.

Hilton and Madden first were seen making out at hot Hollywood nightclub Villa back in February. The relationship seemed to happen overnight and within days they were wearing each others initials on rings.

Gag.

The only thing interesting she did during her relationship with Benji is make two amusing presidential videos. And now that the election's over, that was kind of a dead horse.

What did our Suddenly Single Paris do last night? She bronzed her bod at the Portofino Sun Center in Beverly Hills. A sure sign that the girl is back on the market!

Frankly, this is all welcome news. The conventional, steady-relationship Paris was deadly boring. We want the old boy-crazy, single, party-girl Paris back! We bet she'll be table dancing in no time.

We wonder if Nicole Richie will be next to ditch her Madden (Joel) and became a hot single mom.

Does anyone else think that the Madden Bros. totally ruined our crazy, wild, Hollywood bad girls?

Where in the woof are Paris Hilton's dogs?
