The stars dated almost a decade ago, and were briefly rumoured to be rekindling their romance earlier this year (16), before Belinda insisted she had moved on from her ex.

Now the 27-year-old beauty, who has landed a small role in the new Baywatch movie reboot, has reflected on their relationship in a candid new interview with Mexico's Vanity Fair magazine, insisting that while they had a good time together, they were too young to know what real love was.

"At that time, I was in a little bubble, but today I see... it was just a very nice, very beautiful love, but not the love of my life," she declared, claiming that even now, she has "not really" experienced true love.

"I thought I (was in love), but no..." she mused about her former relationships. "I am very young and I think I've been pretty immature in that sense."

However, Belinda claims she is mature enough now to find 'The One', and when she goes public with her next romance, it will be with a "real love", because she has learned not to let just anyone into her heart.
