Emma Watson bumps into her former-flame Brendan Iribe DURING date with new mystery man

Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson enjoyed a pizza in Los Angeles with a mystery man on Thursday – and bumped into her ex in the process.

Despite the potential awkwardness, the encounter was amicable, as Emma, 29, hugged former-fling Brendan Iribe, 40, grinning from ear-to-ear.

She was seen leaving Double Zero Pizza in Venice as former Oculus CEO Brendan zipped by on a scooter, stopping and hopping off to say hi.

The trio chatted for a few minutes before going their separate ways.

Emma looked casual in a black crop-top and a black and white animal print skirt, with a sweater tied around her waist.

Her companion wore a green T-shirt under an open denim shirt and jeans, shades and a cap.

But fans may be a little baffled, as there was speculation made last week that Emma was in fact romancing her Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton after they posted a snap of themselves hanging out together.

The actress and her one-time crush, 31 – who portrayed Hermione Granger and villain Draco Malfoy respectively in the wizard franchise – posted a snap to Instagram having an intimate guitar lesson.

The pair’s followers took to social media in droves, claiming they could be dating and devising couple names such as ‘Dramione’ and ‘Feltson’ for the former child stars.

It was only early August when Emma first sparked romance rumours with game programmer and former Oculus CEO Brendan when they were seen at a dinner date in Los Angeles earlier this summer.

She was seen trying to make a low-key departure from Santa Monica’s Via Veneto Restaurant as she was pictured heading into a black taxi, while the entrepreneur followed her into the vehicle shortly after.

On their alleged romance, a source told MailOnline: ‘They have been dating for some time. Hilariously her last boyfriend before him was also a tech CEO called Brendan.’ 

University of Maryland alum Brendan co-founded Facebook-owned virtual reality company Oculus back in 2012, before leaving the company late last year.

On his exit, Brendan said: ‘After six incredible years, I am moving on. Working alongside so many talented people at Oculus and Facebook has been the most transformative experience of my career.

‘This will be the first real break I’ve taken in over 20 years. It’s time to recharge, reflect and be creative. I’m excited for the next chapter.’
