Singer's rep says reports of a romance are completely false

Britney Spears is not dating Benji Madden of Good Charlotte, her rep has said.

US tabloid In Touch Weekly reported that Spears and Madden were set up by her manager Larry Rudolph, and said the pair had dinner in a Los Angeles hotel suite.

But Spears’ publicist Holly Shakoor has told E! News that there is absolutely no truth to the report:

“The claims made by In Touch are completely false. There is not an ounce of truth to any of it,” Shakoor said.

Spears apparently has just returned from a trip to Tokyo, where she was promoting her new album ‘Circus’.
