"Me and her out of everybody [on The Hills], like, had the coolest bond, I feel," he added. "I mean, guy-girl bond."
Last week, ET learned that Patridge turned to those closest to her amid her contentious divorce.
"She’s leaning on the support of her family. This is not easy for her," a source told ET. "Audrina is extremely close with her family. She’s putting her focus on what’s best for her daughter."
Patridge also requested a temporary restraining order against the Australian BMX rider for an alleged domestic violence incident, according to court documents obtained from ET.
A judge in Orange County, California, granted Patridge's request, ordering Bohan to stay 100 yards away from her. Bohan was granted monitored visitation of their 1-year-old daughter, Kirra.
