Ben talked to reporters at a PingPong4Purpose event at Dodger Stadium on Thursday and was asked whether he'd be open to rekindling his romance with Lauren given she just split from her boyfriend of more than one year, Devin Antin.
While it took quite a while for Ben to get over the split and find himself ready to date again, Lauren moved on within a couple of months by getting romantically involved with Devin, whom she had met on Tinder prior to appearing on The Bachelor.
Lauren met up with Devin as friends once she moved out of Ben's home in Denver, CO, and returned to her family and friends in Los Angeles, CA. What began as a spark then quickly evolved into a relationship.
Multiple sources informed several media outlets last week Lauren and Devin's relationship is over.

An insider told E! News that Lauren and Devin were "on and off for a couple of months" before deciding to split once and for all.
"It's hard for Lauren right now because she really loves Devin, but it just was not working and they ultimately decided to split up," the insider added at the time.
