New love in the desert, take one?
Among the multiple displays of celeb PDA at Coachella over the weekend were what looked like flirtatious sparks between Nina Dobrev and Scott Eastwood at Neon Carnival, the late-night, post-festival party that kicked off after the last music sets on April 16 into April 17.
"Scott and Nina were getting very close … very flirty," a spy tells Us Weekly.
The adorable, arm-in-arm Facebook pic Scott posted from his hang with Nina looked equally close and flirty.
"Having a fun time at Coachella with this vampire," Scott captioned the shot, shouting out Nina's long tenure on "The Vampire Diaries."
Us Weekly's source noted that the pals remained close as they hopped on some of the rides scattered throughout the party, which drew a slew of celeb guests including Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Jared Leto, The Weeknd and an extra-friendly Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio.
"[Nina and Scott] were super cozy doing the bumper cars," the insider told Us.
Nina, 27, has reportedly been single since she and Austin Stowell called it quits a few months back. At the time, insiders blamed the split on scheduling issues and said the two remained friends.
Scott, 30, was recently linked to model Charlotte McKinney after ending relationships with actress Brittany Brousseau and singer Jana Kramer.
Nina and Scott, meanwhile, have been friends since at least last summer.
After the Teen Choice Awards in August, Scott posted some social media love for Nina and Rita Ora, sharing a pic of the threesome making goofy expressions.
"Show me your best tiger face.....no @ninadobrev.......I said tiger face," the actor joked in the caption, teasing Nina for failing to look fierce. "Great night on the town with these ladies after Teen Choice awards. Until next time …"
The "Overdrive" star, who looks just like his dad, Clint Eastwood, has said he hopes to settle down with someone whom he can share "trust" and "similar passions," telling People, "Love finds you."
He added: "You always get smacked with love when you least expect it."
Hmm … like on the bumper cars in the desert, perhaps?
