As reported last week when they were spotted leaving the gym together – click here for a refresher - Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden are supposedly dating. They spend a lot of time at her place. Nicole Ritchie set them up.

According to Page Six, Benji is “madly in love” with her. Their source claims that:

“Benji is madly in love with Cameron, but she wants to take it slow — he isn’t her usual type. He has dated a lot of Nicole’s friends in the past but Nicole really wants this one to work.”

It isn’t always like this with Cam. Most of the time, at least the way we know her from this distance, the distance that exists between celebrity and civilian, the way we think of her, especially when it comes to men, is this:

She’s dated some assholes. When she was with Alex Rodriguez, it seemed like it was always on his terms. And now we’re told she’s with a guy who adores her. Who’s super, super into her. God I hope that works for her. I really, really hope it works for her. It works a lot better than A Rod, for sure.
