Their last breakup was two months ago and if you believe the latest rumors, they're looking to get back together very soon.

"The perpetual bachelor is so determined to be a better man that he’s in therapy and back together with Shayna Taylor, according to a source. “Ryan and Shayna are back on,” revealed the informant, adding that this time it’s on her terms. “Ryan is trying to win her back for good and going to great lengths to better himself personally. That means, he’s even told her he’s going to therapy to understand what makes him tick.” The on-again romance comes just after the American Idol host, 44, was spotted cavorting with three mystery girls in less than a month!" reported Radar Online.
