No hard feelings: Jenson Button enjoys a friendly catch-up with ex-fiancée Louise Griffiths

By Daily Mail Reporter

Talking about old times: Jenson Button enjoys a lunch date in Los Angeles with ex-fiancée Louise Griffiths

They had a high-profile split six years ago, calling off their wedding just three months before the big day.

But it appears time has healed all wounds between exes Jenson Button and Louise Griffiths.

Currently on a stag trip in Los Angeles, the F1 driver, 31, met up with the singer/songwriter for a cosy lunch date at the Urth Cafe.

Chemistry: The pair still appeared to get on well, despite their tricky split

Wearing a black halterneck dress, the former Fame Academy contestant, 32, looked stunning as she laughed and smiled at her ex-fiancé.

Despite ending their five year relationship just weeks before they planned to wed, it seemed the pair have managed to forge a friendship.

After lunch, Button headed back to his hotel for a bit of sunworshipping by the pool.

Although Button has been dating Japanese model Jessica Michibata for two and a half years, Griffiths is believed to be single after splitting from House actor Jesse Spencer last year.

Button and Griffiths started dating in 2000 and announced their engagement in 2003, soon after she left the BBC talent show.

While they both insisted their decision to call off their engagement was mutual, Griffiths hinted it may have been their differences over family plans.

She said in an interview a few months before they split: '“I want loads of kids. I want to have three children naturally but I’'d also like to adopt two.

“'We’'ve spoken about it a lot and we have slightly different views.”'

Button is currently enjoying some time out after winning the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal last weekend.

He recently admitted that while he and McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton 'get on', they don't spend their free time together.

He said: 'We don't spend any time together. It is the easiest way, really.

'We get on, but we still want to beat each other and that is always going to be the way. We are very competitive people.

'For me, coming to this team, it was exciting to work with Lewis because he is one of the fastest drivers F1 has ever seen. That is a challenge, and I am strong enough to take that challenge.'
