LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. socialite and some-time actress Paris Hilton and her rocker beau Benji Madden have broken up, a source says.

Someone close to Hilton told People magazine the couple ended their 9-month-long romance a few days ago.

Madden, the guitarist for the band Good Charlotte, is the brother of Joel Madden, the father of Hilton friend Nicole Richie's young daughter, Harlow.

"She is saddened by the breakup but they're just too different and they wanted different things in life," a source close to Hilton told People. "He was loyal and sweet but it was time to take a break."

The magazine said the celebrities' respective publicists couldn't be reached for comment about the story.
