"She and Ryan have been out to dinner together twice in one week recently," a source close to Piek told In Touch.
Seacrest, 38, reportedly "gets along really well," with the 27-year-old brunette beauty.
Reports Seacrest and Hough called it quits after nearly three years of dating first surfaced in March, claiming the couple had decided to "take a break" and end their living-together arrangement.
According to People's sources, heavy work schedules made it difficult for Seacrest and the 24-year-old former Dancing with the Stars professional dancer to maintain their romantic relationship but they had intended to remain friends.
Besides his role onAmerican Idol, Seacrest's numerous other work endeavors include his On Air With Ryan Seacrest radio show, E! News responsibilities, and his TV production company. Hough has a blossoming movie career in which she's recently starred in Safe Haven and Footloose.
Piek and actor Chris Pine reportedly broke off their relationship in April.
