Couple spotted together morning after partying at MET Costume Gala

There was speculation Jennifer Lawrence and former flame Nicholas Hoult could be getting back together after they were spotted on a dinner date in Los Angeles recently, but it looks like the reunion might be off as the X Men: First Class star was spotted strolling around New York with his Mad Max: Fury Road co-star Riley Keough hours after they were spotted getting close at a MET Costume Gala afterparty on Monday night.

The fresh faced pair looked relatively upbeat as they walked together in the SoHo neighbourhood, browsing shops in the Manhattan hot spot on Tuesday morning, despite partying the night away together the night before.

Rock royalty Riley, 23, met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road, which is set to hit screens next year, also co-starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy and clearly hit it off very well.

Elvis' granddaughter, who is becoming a recognised actress in her own right, was reportedly with the British star the whole evening, the MailOnline reports, we wonder if they said goodbye at the end of the night?

Let's hope there was no awkward run-in with the star's ex Lawrence who also attended the MET Gala, though with Jen and Nick's recent "friendly" dinner it seems these pair of exes have managed to side step any Hollywood style drama.

When asked about a possible reunion at the MET Gala, the British hunk claimed there is nothing romantic between them.

"We're friends, we're about to work on a film together, so..." he told People magazine. 

Jen and Nick date for two years before splitting in January this year. The break up came as a shock to most observers, as the low key couple were thought to have one of the strongest relationships in Hollywood. Last year, Jen even gushed that the Skins star was her "best friend".

"My boyfriend is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I'm his best friend too," she told Elle magazine last year. "He's my favourite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody."

Jen was spotted jetting back into Los Angeles following the MET Gala on Tuesday - clearly she wasn't interested in hanging around!
