That was fast. On October 22, Us Weekly talked to former Hills star Lauren Conrad and her "new boyfriend," Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Derek Hough, for a sweet spread in the November 7 issue called "A New Love For Lauren."

Well, stop the love presses 'cause that’s last week’s news! Wetpaint Entertainment just had an exclusive that Derek has been seen getting hot and heavy with Celebrity Rehab star Jennifer Gimenez. And now Life & Style confirms that Lauren and Derek have split. One friend of Lauren’s even told L&S that Derek was just a rebound for Lauren after her split from actor Kyle Howard and neither she nor Derek expected it to last.

"Their relationship reached its peak," a friend told L&S. "It was always casual." A second friend said, "She had fun with Derek — he used to send her cute texts and sing to her — but she always kept her options open.”

Sounds like he was doing the same.
