From mysterious drummer Justin Bobby Brescia to BMX dirt bike rider Corey Bohan, Audrina Patridge loves the bad boys. So it comes as no surprise that the reality star would return to spiky-haired musician and party animal Ryan Cabrera—an old flame from her heyday on The Hills.
She and the singer-songwriter were spotted at the Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, California this past weekend, and the pair looked a little too cozy to be “just friends.” A source told People Magazine that the duo is indeed dating again, and that they’ve been “spending a lot of time together recently and are having a good time.”
Cabrera posted another photo of the pair sitting with friends at Stagecoach in his Instagram story, excitedly captioned “STAGECOACH!!!!”
Patridge ended their first relationship after a few months almost a decade ago, allegedly due to his “partying ways” (plus he had to go on tour), but now that they’ve reached the ages of 32 and 35, respectively, they just may stand a chance at a more mature partnership. Cabrera has also dated Ashlee Simpson and Riley Keough in the past, but it seems his feelings for Lauren Conrad’s co-star never really died.
The rekindled romance comes just eight months after Patridge filed for divorce from Bohan after a “series of incidents” during their marriage, which lasted 10 months. The reality star requested restraining orders from the Australian athlete in September and in March because she “no longer feels safe” around him.
Patridge and Bohan have a daughter together, Kirra Max, who was born in June 2016, five months before the couple’s wedding in Hawaii. Brescia, another ex-flame from The Hills more commonly known as “Justin Bobby” (you may remember him as the homeboy who “wore combat boots to the beach”), commented on the couple’s split, telling E! News:
“My first reaction is the thought of the child, obviously. Me, coming from a separated family at a young age, it had its perks and it had its hindrances. My second thought is if she’s OK, because she’s been a longtime friend,” he said. “My thoughts and my heart go out to her and her little one at this time.”
Although Patridge and Brescia have been longtime friends and on-again-off-again lovers, Cabrera is definitely the new mom’s current squeeze. The solo musician also made an appearance in Joey Tierney’s (Patridge’s stylist) Instagram story last Thursday while the pair was hydrating together through IV drips.
“Hydrating, no big deal, on the couch,” Cabrera announced.
With a promising new relationship, a two-year-old daughter, and her very own swimsuit line, Prey Swim, Patridge has lots to keep her busy. While “the rest is still unwritten,” here’s hoping the star has found true love and happiness this time around.
