Lauren Conrad now has even more competition if she ever hopes to get Brody Jenner back in her hands.

E! News has learned exclusively that Jenner is dating 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole. The couple is serious enough that Jenner took the Canadian model as his date to the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night. "He walked the red carpet alone, but they sat together throughout the show," says a source.

Following the broadcast, the pair hit up the In Touch party at the Chateau Marmont, where, according to a source, "they were getting cozy, holding hands and kissing all night."

The source tells E! News the couple left the Chateau party and hit up a private party in the Mt. Olympus neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills: "They left in an SUV and went to his place," says the source.

The pair have known each other for a while, sources say, but Sunday night was their "coming out" as a couple.

A source at the Chateau party says that most partygoers were mistaking the brunette Jayde for Jenner's ex, model Cora Skinner.
