First it was a local music executive, then superstar DJ Diplo. Now, Lorde has been photographed in the vicinity of Nick Jonas, sparking fresh "hook up" rumours.

The photo, published by TMZ, shows the Kiwi singer leaving Lady Gaga's 30th birthday party at the No Name Club in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

But the site conveniently leaves out the fact fellow singer and Lorde's good friend Taylor Swift was also in the car with them. Swift and Jonas are long-time friends, with Jonas performing with Swift on her 1989 tour.

The report comes just a month after the singer was reportedly seen holding hands with Diplo following the Brit Awards in London.

Prior to that, Woman's Day had published photos of Lorde with Auckland record executive Justin Warren, as the pair frolicked in the surf at Piha.

Lorde split with her former boyfriend, photographer James Lowe, late last year after nearly three years together.
