Is moving on from her recent split from Benji Madden, Sophie Monk is continuing to make her mark on the Hollywood social scene with rumors she is romancing presenter Ryan Seacrest. Not without reason, but speculation of a romance was abuzz soon after the couple were spotted in the same car this past weekend.
Monk and Seacrest were seen leaving L.A. Foxtail nightclub in the same car this past weekend. Both of them were seen leaving the scene in the backseat of a car, sitting close one to another.
"Maybe they're 'just friends', but they'd be an ideal couple - it'd be like a real-life Ken and Barbie!" Hollywood gossip columnist Perez Hilton wrote on his Website.
Australia's blonde bombshell Monk and longtime boyfriend Benji first met on the set of Benji's band Good Charlotte music video back in 2006. They had been dating for six months when the rocker proposed to the starlet with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane diamond ring on Christmas Eve the same year.
Had repeatedly been hit with break up rumors and following their many denials, it was officially confirmed in mid-February that they had separated. In a statement issued by Monk's Sydney agent on February 12, it was confirmed that "Sophie and Benji have officially split. The decision was mutual and they remain amicable."
Following their separation, Benji was quick to find a new love in celebrity socialite Paris Hilton. Though so, Monk insisted Benji didn't leave her for the heiress, saying "Benji did not leave me for Paris Hilton. Benji and I did not break up badly or anything like that. We both decided, as adults, our relationship had run its course and decided to move on. I feel no animosity towards Benji and Paris at all and am very happy with life at the moment."
