Paris -- Not Madden Love with Stavros

11/21/2008 1:52 PM PST
Paris and Benji may have split -- for now -- but she says those pics of her sleazing it up with ex-BF Stavros Niarchos had nothing to do with it.

Hilton just did an interview on KIIS-FM, where she explained the compromising pics, the real reasons they parted and actually kept it classy for once -- by even promoting Benji's upcoming CD.

She also said they are just "on a break." That worked so well for Ross & Rachel.
