Ashley Greene has been spotted getting "close" to Jared Followill.

The 'Twilight' actress - who recently spilt up with Joe Jonas - was seen celebrating St Patrick's Day (17.03.11) with the 24-year-old Kings Of Leon bassist and was reportedly "flirting" with him earlier in the week when the pair went clubbing together.

An onlooker who saw the couple at Avenue nightclub in New York on Monday night (14.03.11) told People magazine: "Ashley was smiling all night. She and Jared were close the whole night. Dancing, talking, flirting.

"It was pretty clear they were into each other."

Another source added that they partied into the small hours of the next day and didn't leave the club until 4am.

They were then spotted again last night (17.03.11) where they celebrated the traditional Irish holiday together at Phebe's Tavern & Grill in New York.

The 24-year-old actress later tweeted: "Good food. Good friends. Great day."

A spokesperson confirmed yesterday that the brunette beauty had split from singer Joe after around nine months of dating.

They said in a statement: "We can confirm they have parted ways and have no further comment."

A source close to Ashley said the relationship broke down due to work commitments and hinted the couple never intended to stay together long-term.

They told E! Online: "They were apart a lot working. It was never that serious.

"Don't be too upset they have broken up - [Ashley and Joe] are not at all."
