Hilary Duff and her former boyfriend, tattooed Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden, have changed their minds.

The couple – who split last month after nearly two and a half years together – have dropped their application for a temporary restraining order against celebrity photographer David Joseph Klein, according to documents filed Monday, the Associated Press reports.

Duff, 19, and Madden, 27, had sought restraining orders against Klein, 50, and Maksim Myaskovskiy, 18, who's been charged with stalking the former Lizzie McGuire star after police said he contacted a private security firm employed by Duff last month and threatened her and Madden.

After being arrested and pleading not guilty, Myaskovskiy, a Russian immigrant, remained jailed last week, awaiting his court appearance. Papers in the case alleged that Klein relayed messages to Duff from Myaskovskiy, his former roommate.

According to publicity representatives for Duff, the case against Klein was dismissed by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard E. Rico "based upon (Klein's) apologies for any misunderstanding, his cooperation, and his assurances that he will not seek further contact with Ms. Duff, Mr. Madden, or any of their family members or representatives."
