If anyone knows what it’s like to be engaged to Benji Madden, it’s our own Sophie Monk. In an interview with Sydney Confidential, the 35-year-old entertainment personality chimed in on her ex-fiancée’s new rumoured engagement to Cameron Diaz, and it came across a little calculated.
“I remember being in Year 8 or something and looking up to Cameron and going ‘wow, one day I want to be funny and be in the industry,’ so it’s kind of cool,” Sophie said, highlighting the 8-year age difference between Benji, 35, and Cameron, 43.
Sophie, who is the same age as the Good Charlotte singer, started a relationship with Benji in 2006, was engaged to him in 2007, but the pair parted ways in 2008. Despite their differences, Sophie claims she wants the best for her ex. “I want him to be happy, so if he’s found someone that makes him happy that’s awesome.’’
Six years later, she also decided to admit that the broken engagement was her doing. “We broke off the engagement … I chose not to get married,” she told Sydney Confidential. However, she chose to get engaged again three years later to millionaire Jimmy Esebag who, mind you, happened to be 20 years her senior.
Much like Benji, her engagement with Jimmy also didn’t work out as she’s currently single. Apparently she’s on Tinder, though, so a new relationship could be on the cards soon.
