Amber Heard and Elon Musk are ''not back together'', despite being spotted with one another earlier this week.

The 31-year-old actress and the Tesla CEO began dating in 2016 before parting ways in August this year, and whilst they were spotted enjoying a breakfast together at Sweet Butter Kitchen in Los Angeles on Thursday (16.11.17), sources have insisted the meeting does not mark a reconciliation for the pair.

One insider said told People magazine: ''They sat next to each other, but were not affectionate. They seemed to have a somber conversation.''

Whilst a second added: ''They're definitely not back together, but have seen each other a couple times as friends.''

It comes just days after Elon, 46, admitted he was left ''hurt'' after his split from the 'Magic Mike XXL' actress.

He said: ''I just broke up with my girlfriend. It hurt bad. Well, she broke up with me more than I broke up with her, I think.''

And the entrepreneur admitted he is desperate to find love, as he hates being alone.

He added: '''I never want to be alone. That's what I would say [as a child], 'I don't want to be alone.' I will never be happy without having someone. Going to sleep alone kills me. It's not like I don't know what that feels like: Being in a big empty house, and the footsteps echoing through the hallway, no one there - and no one on the pillow next to you. F**k.

''How do you make yourself happy in a situation like that? Is there anybody you think I should date? It's so hard for me to even meet people. I'm looking for a long-term relationship. I'm not looking for a one-night stand. I'm looking for a serious companion or soulmate, that kind of thing.''
