Lara Flynn Boyle's love life has made a return to the spotlight, following speculation she's rekindled her romance with comedian David Spade.

The former star of The Practice, who once dated Hollywood lothario JACK NICHOLSON, enjoyed a six-month romance with Space in the late '90s - and pals say the funnyman has an eye for her once again.

On 12 October (04), Spade arrived at West Hollywood club Pearl with a female in tow, while Boyle was already inside, sitting with jewellery designer ROSALINA. But when he saw Boyle, he reportedly ditched his date to be with her.

A source tells US WEEKLY, "I don't know if they're dating per se. It's more like a misery-loves-company sort of thing."

Boyle's representative insists the pair aren't dating.
