Sometimes we just have to wonder what the hell Cupid was thinking and how drunk he was while thinking it. In a story that we prefer to take with a boulder of salt, Life & Style says Lauren Conrad is "hot and heavy" with Stephen Dorff, 38, who was recently accused of sending threatening texts to an ex-girlfriend.
"They've been hooking up for a while," alleges a Dorff pal. "Stephen likes to have a good time, and he wines and dines her."
Seems the oddball pair was also "very flirty" during Lauren's 26th birthday bash at a Los Angeles hotel on Feb. 16.
"He was touching her arm and back," recalls a spy, before adding, "She's cautious and knows he's a player. She's just having fun."
Last summer, Conrad called it quits with actor Kyle Howard, her boyfriend of three years, ostensibly over his lack of support over her career. She was soon linked to a variety of guys as pretty as she is, including Derek Hough and Chace Crawford.
