Actress Jessica Lowndes has split from her British beau Thom Evans, according to a U.K. report. The pair began dating after meeting in a coffee shop in Los Angeles earlier this year (13). Ironically, they were already linked through their exes - Lowndes has dated rugby star Danny Cipriani, who had a romance with Evans' former partner Kelly Brook.
However, after trying to balance a long distance romance with their careers, the couple has decided to call it a day.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "It was a mutual decision and Jessica and Thom have been on and off for quite a while now.
"Jessica works mostly in America while Thom's modelling work is in the U.K. They have realised it is totally unfeasible trying to maintain a relationship from different sides of The Pond."
Actress Jessica Lowndes was taken aback when she introduced her new British beau Thom Evans to her family, because he instantly bonded with her father over their shared love of sport. The 90210 star sparked rumours she was dating British model Kelly Brook's ex in March (13) when she uploaded pictures of the pair kissing on photosharing website Instagram.
The pair has now opened up about the whirlwind romance in an interview with the U.K.'s OK! magazine, and Lowndes has revealed her family in Canada is smitten with the former rugby player.
She says, "He was like a young version of my dad. They were inseparable - it freaked me out! My dad is used to a house full of women with me, my sister and my mum, so the second they met they hung out constantly. I know how crazy it sounds after such a short amount of time, but when you know, you know."
Evans adds, "I was slightly apprehensive at first, but they were the nicest people. I even went to an ice hockey game with her dad! We bought the T-shirt, the jersey, wore the cap back to front. He's super into his fitness and we had lots in common, so it was a piece of cake."
Evans split from Brook in January (12) after two years together. She is now back with her ex-boyfriend Danny Cipriani, who has also been linked to Lowndes in the past.
Five years after we met West Beverly High's newest generation of rich kids, the time has come (again) to say goodbye to the most famous zip code in the world. The CW's 90210 might have been conceived as a reboot of the '90s teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210, but after midwestern transplants Annie and Dixon Wilson adjusted to California life it quickly became its own show.
The final episode of the drama felt very retro — the Goo Goo Dolls performed, proving that it might actually still be the '90s in Beverly Hills — but it also tied up plenty of loose ends for some happy and not-so-happy endings. Can you guess the Jen Linley of this bunch?
Let's take a look back at where the gang began, and where they ended up:
Annie (Shenae Grimes) She might've started out as a goody-goody drama kid — the Anne Hathaway of West Bev — but Annie's story took a dark turn into rebellion, vehicular manslaughter, and prostitution. Interestingly enough, Annie managed to snag the only straight-up happy ending of the bunch: She and Liam finally got engaged.
Dixon (Tristan Wilds) Dixon went through plenty of trauma in a five-year span, including the David Silver Memorial Aspiring Musician Drug Problem and a terrible car accident, but interestingly enough, he seemed the most unchanged out of the group. Good ol' smiley Dixon.
Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord) Once a straight-up bitch, Naomi Summer Roberts'd herself into the position of intimidating, confident friend who's actually a softie at heart. When her family lost their fortune she learned humility, and came out on the other side with just as excellent a wardrobe, a newfound urgency to do good in the world, and much straighter hair.
Navid (Michael Steger) Navid always had it bad for Adrianna, and although he got trapped in a collapsing building and nearly died in the finale, it was because he ran in after his love and saved her life. Typical Navid. Those two ended up happily ever after as well, but in a less-than-ideal setting: the back of an ambulance.
Silver (Jessica Stroup) Poor Erin Silver was not dealt an easy hand in life. After struggling with bipolar disorder and losing her mom to breast cancer, Silver learned in the finale that she'd developed cancer too. Can the poor girl catch a break? At least she has some truly supportive friends surrounding her. (And Adrianna.)
Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) Once a pregnant teenage former child star, Adrianna morphed into a crazy, slightly older teenage music star. For some reason all the nice dudes on the show put up with her, but thank goodness she and Navid stuck it through — his not-awfulness managed to rub off on her, at least a little.
Liam (Matt Lanter) Liam went from the guy from the other side of the tracks to a bar-owning major movie star, earning himself a much-needed attitude adjustment before finally pleasing Lannie shippers everywhere and getting down on one knee. Annie and Liam forever!

"On our first date I was telling him so much about London, because I've spent loads of time here. He's impressed with my knowledge but my English accent is rubbish. I've picked up on all the slang terms. I love 'snog' (to kiss) and I like snogging, too." 90210 star Jessica Lowndes won over British rugby hunk Thom Evans with her knowledge of London.
Actress Jessica Lowndes has seemingly moved on from her recent love split - she's been pictured kissing Kelly Brook's ex-boyfriend Thom Evans. The 90210 star began dating former Olympic athlete Jeremy Bloom last year (12), but it was reported in March (13) that the relationship had come to an end.
Lowndes has now allegedly moved on with ex-rugby player Evans, who split from Brook in January (13), and has posted a picture of the pair kissing during California's Coachella festival on her Instagram account.
Captioning the snap, which was taken on Friday (12Apr13), she writes, "Sunset at Coachella Day1."
Now that The CW has canceled 90210 after five seasons, a question hangs over the heads of the actors who comprise the drama's hot, young ensemble: What next?
With their show's series finale airing Monday, May 13, the talented 90210 cast members have plenty of options ahead of them — especially since the decision to axe the show came in the thick of pilot season. The biggest (and best) idea at this point would be to capitalize on their CW fame and hop onto another show on the same network, either joining a recurring series or a new pilot. The CW loves to keep its actors in the family and recycle them across its different series (for which we are eternally grateful: If not for Cult, how else would we see the amazing Matt Davis every week after Alaric left us with tear-streaked faces following his Vampire Diaries death?). With that in mind, we've brainstormed some dream roles for each of the displaced 90210 kids. Here's what we came up with:
RELATED: '90210' Canceled After 5 Seasons
AnnaLynne McCord has both the looks and attitude perfect to play a young, successful Manhattan woman in the '80s on The Carrie Diaries. Perhaps Carrie Bradshaw will need another mentor now that her first one is her boss at Interview magazine. Shenae Grimes has the sweet country girl act down pat (Annie was a nice girl from Kansas transplanted into Beverly Hills at the start of 90210), so maybe she can head to Bluebell, Alabama and befriend Hart of Dixie's Zoey Hart — the doctor's going to need a pal after her recent heartbreak thanks to Wade's infidelity. Matt Lanter's got the build and bravado to go up against Arrow's Oliver Queen in an action-packed fight, one that we are more than glad to witness. Especially if it's shirtless. But would he be a friend or foe to our favorite archer?
Jessica Stroup bears a certain family resemblance to Dillon Casey's Sean Pierce on Nikita, so she'd be perfect as one of the sisters he had to leave behind after he faked his death last week. Jessica Lowndes has the perfect dark looks to portray a vampire (either good or evil) on The Vampire Diaries — or the potential spin off series, The Originals. Michael Steger would be great in Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec's pilot The Tomorrow People, about young people who represent the next stage in human evolution. Tristan Wilds could check out Sera Gamble's pilot Company Town, a drama revolving around a scandal at a Naval base in Virginia.

There are also other networks, though that's sometimes easy to forget between all the shirtlessness — why would you click anywhere else? Trevor Donovan has already signed on to guest star for three episodes on ABC Family's Melissa and Joey (in fact, his stint was announced mere hours after 90210's cancellation... now that's speedy, even by Hollywood's standards). Joining a show on a different network would give the actors a chance to build their fan base outside of The CW's target demo.
Of course, there's always the option to leave acting behind and fade away into obscurity... but something tells us these beautiful people will choose to stay on our TV screens one way or another. And that's right where we want them! What do you think the 90210 alums should do next?

The TV castmates donned sashes and tiaras to recreate famous shots of Britain's first couple for Watch! magazine's upcoming summer (12) travel issue.
Lanter and Lowndes even travelled to London for the shoot, which took place at The Dorchester hotel.
Actress Jessica Lowndes has found love with former Olympic athlete Jeremy Bloom, according to reports.
The 90210 star was recently spotted cuddling up to a new man and editors at Life & Style magazine have now identified the mystery male as Bloom.
The 30 year old sportsman competed for the U.S. ski team in the 2002 and 2006 Winter Olympics, while he's also played as a professional American footballer with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Lowndes, 23, has previously dated her TV co-star Adam Gregory and Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul.
The 90210 star loves buying sexy underwear and adds to her range whenever she can.
She tells Britain's FHM magazine, "I have a lingerie addiction... I have three drawers full of lingerie at home and I have already been lingerie shopping in London even though I should be going out and buying more practical clothes.
"I just can’t help myself, it makes me feel pretty and sexy."
"I said on Twitter I liked squirrels and my fans now send me stuffed meerkats. I keep getting dead animals delivered. It's kind of sweet and a little weird." 90210 star Jessica Lowndes has been inundated with strange presents.
