Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor broke up years ago, but they managed to keep their friendship intact. After news of the actress visiting her ex-beau's apartment emerged, reports say the Kapoor scion had met up with her in Los Angeles (sometime ago), where she has been shooting for "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage."

The two had apparently spent quality time together then, SpotboyE reported. This comes a week after Deepika was spotted chatting away with RK at the balcony of his bachelor pad.

While the details of their meetings are not known yet, rumour has it that Deepika's only lending a shoulder for Ranbir to cry on. The "Tamasha" actor is nursing a broken heart.

He and Katrina Kaif apparently called time on their seven-year-long relationship earlier this year. Although none of the two have confirmed the news, the buzz is they parted ways owing to Ranbir's non-committal attitude.

Sources say that wasn't the only reason. The couple had compatibility issues and their lifestyles were worlds apart. An insider told the Asian Age, how Katrina would tuck in at home while Ranbir would step out to party with friends.

The cracks in their relationship widened when he got close to his co-star Deepika during "Tamasha" promotions. "There was also Ranbir's fear of the 'M' word and after his last film with his ex, Deepika (Padukone), the relationship just hit a rough patch," the source told the leading daily.

On the work front, Deepika is working on her Hollywood debut "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage." Ranbir will begin working on Sanjay Dutt biopic soon.
