Hilary Duff and Joel Madden part ways

Actress Hilary Duff and rocker Good Charlotte’s Joel Madden have ended their relationship, according to People magazine.

Allegedly Madden made a guest DJ appearance at a Chicago hot spot Wednesday night and was publicly talking about his newly-single status.

The Chicago Tribune reports Madden told fellow clubbers Duff broke with him, and cited their eight-year age difference as the source of the problems in their relationship. Duff is 19, while Madden is 27 years old.

The singer was seen enjoying himself and taking pictures with various clubbing fillys until the wee hours.
