The pair, who were originally an item back in 2006, reunited after Ryan, 30, helped Riley, 23, through her split with her Magic Mike co-star Alex Pettyfer.
And Ryan is desperate to make it work this time and has even been putting in the hours with Riley’s mom, Lisa Marie Presley!
“Ryan and Riley have been dating under the radar for a few months,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “They got back together after Ryan reached out to her to offer some comfort following Riley’s painful split from Alex.
“Despite splitting up and moving on with other partners, Ryan and Riley have always held a torch for one another.
“The two had a tempestuous relationship, but they were young and both were going through rebellious phases back then.
“Now, they’ve come to the realization that they are each other’s first loves and they’ve always been super tight, despite numerous break-ups in the past.
“Riley’s been filming in Namibia, but when she gets back she can’t wait to see Ryan. In the meantime, he’s been putting the effort in with Lisa Marie. He’s had dinner with her and Priscilla on a few occasions, and he even went and supported Lisa Marie on her latest tour,” the source revealed.
Back in March, it was reported that Riley and Alex, 21, were engaged; they initially met on the set of Magic Mike and reportedly began dating in September, 2011.
However, in August the National Enquirer reported that Lisa Marie, 44, was “secretly thrilled” that Riley had called off her engagement to the hunky actor.
