Hilary Duff and estranged husband Mike Comrie are still separated despite spending the weekend at Coachella together, according to reports.
And while the trip to the California desert for the music and arts festival sparked reconciliation rumours, Duff was spotted flirting with another man on Sunday night.
The 26-year-old Lizzie McGuire star is reported to have enjoyed a flirtatious conversation with muscle-bound hunk Kellan Lutz right in front of Comrie, who she separated from at the start of the new year.
The 29-year-old Twilight star Kellan is said to have walked up and said 'hello' to Duff, according to a source with Life & Style.
The insider went on to claim that 'they both looked so happy to see each other.'
'They were leaning in close to talk to each other,' the eyewitness added.
The source also noted that the singer and Comrie, 33, were quite distant throughout the evening: 'Hilary and Mike were sitting together at the table, but didn’t pay much attention to each other. They weren’t affectionate at all.'
But earlier in the weekend the estranged pair looked to be quite cosy with one another.
Meanwhile, a source has alleged that the former couple are just friends who have decided to continue spending time with each other following their split.
'They are still separated but very good friends,' the insider told People. 'They are at Coachella this weekend, which is sure to fan the flames, but they aren’t a couple. It’s just not true – they remain separated.'
Stood together in the crowds, along with friends, it was hard to believe they are not reconciling as the pair looked relaxed, happy and confident as they laughed and joked together while listening to live music.
Both in shorts and T-shirts, the duo were summery and smiley as they strolled across the huge grass fields together to reach the live music tent.
It had appeared that Hilary and Mike were keen to give things another go - having announced their amicable separation early in the new year, after three years of marriage.
In a felt fedora hat and huge bug-eyed sunglasses, the former Disney actress seemed happy and laid-back as she took in her surroundings with Mike.
According to a Thursday report from RadarOnline, the Lizzie McGuire and the 33-year-old former hockey star ended up falling in love again. And now the couple - who started their break in January - have decided to not part ways. Hilary's rep did not return calls to MailOnline.
Lending credibility to the report, the duo were spotted shopping together at Chanel in Beverly Hills that same day news of their reunion broke.
The two shared a Valentine's Day trip that was 'intended to be a time for the couple to discuss splitting assets and a suitable custody arrangement for their son' but the two instead agreed to work on their marriage, a source told the site. Their only child Luca is aged two.
The insider also added: 'Hilary and Mike hooked up when they were in the Bahamas.'
After that the emotions came back. 'Mike broke down and begged Hilary for a second chance,' the Radar insider said.
For months the Lizzie McGuire star was not interested in a reconciliation, but then she reportedly had a 'change of heart.'
'They’ve been meeting for hookups ever since, and Hilary’s softened and the two are moving forward to see if they can work it out,' the insider revealed.
