Duff and Koma broke up in March 2017, but they got back together in the fall.

“I think [if] you have history and a past with someone and love — and just because it doesn’t work out the first time, the second time, as long as there’s not too much damage done — then, it can always work out again,” the actress said on The Talk in December 2017.
