Hilary Duff, who has hinted she lost her virginity to Good Charlotte member Joel Madden, was seen in January 2016 putting on a brave face while arriving at AOL Build in New York City following the passing of her French bulldog, Beau.

The then 28-year-old actress was “shattered in a million pieces” over the passing of her dog, but she continued her promotional duties for the second season of her comedy-drama TV series, “Younger.”

In July 2004, a 25-year-old Joel Rueben Madden began dating teen idol Hilary Duff when she was 16. One year earlier, she ended her relationship with Aaron Carter.

“I had a 26-year-old boyfriend,” Duff said in the April 2015 issue of Cosmopolitan of Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, whom she dated from ages 16 to 19. “So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing.”

Born on March 11, 1979, in Waldorf, Maryland, Joel Madden is 9 years older than Hilary Duff, who was born on September 28, 1987, in Houston, Texas. They broke up in November 2006.

“I kind of ignored it and tried to just continue to live my life,” Madden told People about their breakup in March 2007.

“People can say or think whatever they want …so in my reality, it’s kind of irrelevant. I’m always the kind of person that does the right thing and keeps my side of the street clean.”
