Duff Slams Richie Rumours
The actress turned singer says she hasn't penned an 'up yours' song about her ex and his new missus...
Hilary Duff has denied rumours the title track of her new album is an attack on Nicole Richie and her ex-boyfriend, Joel Madden.
Richie and the Good Charlotte star started dating soon after his and Duff's two a half year relationship ended, and many reports claim 'Dignity' is Hilary's revenge song.
One verse includes the lines: "Always with Mr Right, but when you have a fight, run into your friends ex, he's happy to be your next. Tomorrows papers coming out so kiss him fast, watch the cameras flash."
But Hilary is admant the tune is not about the Simple Life star.
Talking to MTV News, she said, "It's tabloid hype. My record finished before I even heard they were dating. I was in Bulgaria filming a movie and I found out two weeks later. There's no song on the record about them being together."
She added, "Dignity is not to do with her, it's just about certain people in LA and whether they think (celebrity) is important.
"There are songs about him (Madden) obviously, I was with him for two and a half years. But I dont have a problem with her (Richie) or any of them."
