The Scream Queens star, 25, attended the event at Poppy in West Hollywood, where Rydell watched Lourd as she answered questions on the red carpet. Rydell graciously waited for Lourd to finish her interviews before they headed into the event separately, where they were spotted kissing inside. An eyewitness tells Us that the actress and Rydell went to great lengths to be discrete.

This wasn’t the first time the former flames have been seen together since rekindling their romance. In October 2017, the American Horror Story star and Rydell were spotted kissing outside a hotel a day after she attended AHS costar Colton Hayne’s wedding in Palm Springs.

Lourd was previously linked to Twilight star Taylor Lautner, who supported the actress after the December 2016 deaths of her mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother Debbie Reynolds. However, the pair split in July 2017 after several months of dating.
