Last month, the blonde bumped into her ex-lover unexpectedly at Valley Inn Restaurant and Bar in California.

The insider said: "As soon as Nick and Jess caught each other's eyes, he slid into the booth right next to her and gave her a big hug and kiss.

"It's not like the two of them are reconciling. It's more like they're having 'time-out' to make sure they're making the right decision to split. They still love each other."
