Us Weekly reports that the two photogenic stars, both 24, are indeed dating.

"They were talking close and she had her hand on his leg. Then they would kiss," an onlooker told the magazine about the pair during another outing at the opening of West Hollywood's upscale karaoke lounge Blind Dragon last month.

The two already appeared to have grown close almost a year earlier. At the Vampire Academy premiere after party in Los Angeles last February, the pair was snapped joking around and embracing.

This marks the first relationship since Hyland broke up with Prokop, whom she dated for more than five years. In September, she was granted a restraining order against her ex. Court papers allege that Prokop not only choked Hyland, but also threatened to burn her house down. After their breakup, the papers claim that Prokop "bombarded" Hyland with "vile, threatening and emotionally disturbing texts and voice mails."
