If anyone could get to the bottom of Paris Hilton and Benji Madden‘s break up it’s Ryan Seacrest. Today the heiress was on Ryan’s radio show KIIS-FM and put a stop to the rumors that she dumped Benji.

“You know, I love him. He’s such an amazing man and he’s my best friend and he’s been so great to me and so loyal. He’s an incredible person. We’ll always be very close. We’ll see what happens in the future. I’m still in love with him.”

As for the reason behind the split, she said that they are both extremely busy with work and travel. Neither one dumped the other, the decision was mutual between “two adults.”

Hilton said that the two talk daily and have even seen each other. One has to wonder if the recent run in that she had with her ex-boyfriend Stavros Niarchos had anything to do with the split? She said it was a “chance encounter” and that they simply had a quick chat. You can check out the photos of the quick meeting here.
