Madden made a guest DJ appearance at Enclave on Wednesday night and openly talked about how he is currently single. Madden told clubgoers Duff broke up with him about ten days ago and that their eight-year age difference was causing problems. (Madden is 27, Duff is 19.) To say that I am bummed about this would be a complete understatement. Hilary and Joel are the coolest people and I have always been a big fan of their relationship. I know that they truly were happy together once-upon-a-time but sometimes things just don't work out (boy, do I know all about that). I'm a firm believer that things work out for the best in the long run. It's clear to me that there was no impropriety that lead to the break-up ... the relationship just ended. [Source, thanks Cat]
I'm reluctant to take sides in something like this (Team Joel!) but I do wish the best for both of them. Boo ... what sad, sad day.
