We thought there was a good chance that former couple Benji Madden and Sophie Monk would cross paths at Melbourne Cup yesterday and it turns out they had a near miss. The couple had a bitter break-up after Benji dumped Sophie for Paris Hilton. When asked about her ex, Sophie said, “I would love to bump into him.” Cough. Meanwhile, Benji was reportedly stunned to learn that Soph was just metres away in another marquee. Twin Joel teased his brother saying, “What a perfect place for a reunion.” But it was not to be. Sophie left the festivities after a few hours and walked right past the marquee where the Good Charlotte boys were partying.
