Katie Price broke up with Leandro Penna only a few weeks ago, and since then the male model has said some unflattering things about his ex-fiancee.
But that doesn't seem to stop her friend Lauren Pope from having a bite to eat with him.
Lauren and Leandro both attended TOWIE star Chloe Sims' book launch party at Luxe nightclub in Loughton, and then reportedly were spotted in the same restaurant afterwards.

According to eye-witnesses, Lauren and Leandro were having a bite to eat at The Tuscany in Loughton following the book launch party.
After getting spotted by bystanders, Katie's ex-boyfriend tried to hide in the electric cupboard of the restaurant, as Lauren quickly left the venue with another male friend in tow.
It's not certain whether Lauren and Leandro accidentally ran into each other in the pizza place after both getting peckish following the party, or if they planned to dine together.

Leandro met the former glamour model Katie Price at Sir Elton JOhn's Oscar party in Los Angeles in early 2011 and the pair quickly became inseparable, before splitting up in October of this year.
The glamour girl tweeted a link to her blog where a statement read: 'Despite remaining firm friends and having a deep affection for each other Kate and Leo have decided to separate.'
The Argentine hunk has since been spotted with a mystery brunette on holiday in Miami, showing he has moved on from the relationship.

Meanwhile, TOWIE star Lauren and Katie are often spotted having friendly dinners together.
Lauren is also represented by BlackSheep Management, which is run by Katie's manager Andrew Antonio and her brother Daniel.
