There’s a new Hollywood couple alert -- or at least a pretty good rumor! Cameron Diaz and Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden are dating, X17.com reported on Sunday.
"Cameron is pretty into him ... she likes the bad boys! But the thing is, Benji's actually a really nice guy,” a source told the news site. “They've been having fun together, making sure it doesn't get too serious too fast."
X17.com wondered if they would be called “Camji,” reminiscent of Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) and Robsten (Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart).
The actress, 41, had been spotted hitting the gym and spending some quality time with the 35-year-old guitarist several times over the past few weeks. They were reportedly seen at a Los Angeles Equinox on Friday and supposedly attended the same book launch the night before, Us Weekly wrote.
"They've spent a lot of time at Cameron's house," one source told People.com. "Cameron seems very happy with Benji. He is the nicest guy and treats her like a lady."

A different insider observed the duo seem like they’re more than just friends. "They seemed very friendly," the source told People.com. "And they looked like they were trying to avoid [being seen outside], but Cameron was super friendly with other people [at the gym]. She even taught a girl how to use one of the arm weight machines."
Us Weekly reported the relationship is “very new” and a source told the news site that Diaz and Madden are “just hanging out.”
People.com wondered if Madden and Diaz would double date with Nicole Richie and husband Joel Madden, considering Diaz has apparently been friends with the lavender-haired fashionista for some time and the brothers are in the same band.
Richie is the one who actually brought together her brother-in-law and Diaz. "Nicole thought they'd click," a source told Us Weekly.
This is Diaz’s first high-profile relationship since she split from Yankees’ third-baseman Alex Rodriguez in 2011. She’s also dated A-list celebs such as Justin Timberlake and Jared Leto. The actress shocked some when she recently said she had “been with a lady” on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
