    Are Katy Perry and ex Rob Ackroyd back together?

    Reports surfaced this week claiming that the 29-year-old "Roar" singer and the Florence + the Machine guitarist were spotted getting their PDA on together during a celebration in London following the U.K. leg of Perry's Prismatic World Tour.

    "Katy and Rob seemed to be very much back together at her party on Saturday night," a source told The Sun. "They were inseparable, kissing, flirting and cuddling away in front of the roadies, celebs and friends at the bash."

    While Perry and Ackroyd's relationship status is still a bit of a mystery, a source close to the former couple tells E! News exclusively, "Katy and Rob are very close and have remained close since they broke up a while ago. Rob has been in London for a while now."

    Perry and Ackroyd first started dating back in 2012 sometime around the Coachella Music Festival in April. During the music fest, the lovebirds were snapped strolling around holding hands.

    Despite the whirlwind romance, news of their breakup spread only one month after their Coachella getaway. "It wasn't serious," a source told E! News in May 2012. "She likes him a lot, but it was just a distraction. It was very short-lived, she's still dealing with getting over her marriage [to Russell Brand] and it's going to take her a while to truly be able to trust anyone again."

    After dating Ackroyd, Perry famously hooked up with John Mayer, who she split with back in February of this year.
