Following her breakup with DJ AM, Nicole moved on with childhood friend and The Hills star in 2006. Even though their relationship only lasted two months, the two were nearly inseparable during their time together. Nicole's rep, Nicole Perna confirmed the split exclusively to Us Weekly, saying, "Nicole and Brody are no longer dating but remain close friends." A source also reported that Nicole initiated the breakup, but they both agreed it was best to part ways. Nicole then addressed the breakup via her MySpace page, writing, "I know there are rumors regarding my 'breakup' with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he's a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity."
