The blogosphere and gossip sites have expressed amazement that Avril’s beau was seen driving Lindsay around on a shopping trip at Fred Segal yesterday.
This is especially controversial – even though some commentators are giving Jenner the benefit of the doubt, speculating he may simply be hanging out with an old friend – since Brody and Lindsay have been tied romantically in the past.
In February 2007, the Hollywood Gossip filed a post entitled “Lindsay Lohan is Off Booze, On Top of Brody Jenner” and almost a year later, in January 2008, People magazine wrote the article “Lindsay Lohan & Brody Jenner’s ‘Inn’ Love“.
None of the three celebrities’ verified Twitter accounts have any posts to-date about this occurrence, although it appears Brody may have sold an advertisement through one of his Twitter posts to earn money off his half million followers – perhaps to pay for his shopping trip with Lindsay:

* In Twitter posts, it is common and standard practice to insert “(ad)” or “(sponsor)” to tweets where the writer is paid to write it.

June 18 Update: After her return from Europe, Avril and Brody were seen out during the evening of June 17 dining at El Compadre Mexican food restaurant in Hollywood.
