Michael B. Jordan and Kiki Layne had a flirty Friday night, according to an onlooker.
“Michael and Kiki were super flirty all night,” the onlooker tells PEOPLE. “He spent literally all night talking and focused on her.”
Jordan arrived with an entourage around 11:30 p.m., when he was escorted to a table, the insider explained. There, the actor partied with Gerard Butler, 49, before turning his attention to Layne at the pop up, where guests drank Casamigos.
Near the end of the night, Jordan “left the club first and she followed,” the source says.
Reps for both stars — who are in Park City for the annual Sundance Film Festival — did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.
The two had first sparked speculations when they exchanged flirty tweets in February 2018 while participating in a celebrity prank show, MTV’s Safeword, and again in January when they staged a makeout scene, along with their costar Danai Gurira, in a photo booth at the InStyle & Warner Bros. Golden Globes afterparty.
“We’re good friends,” Jordan told Entertainment Tonight. “Honestly, we’ve known each other a really long time and respect each other and I love this girl to death.”
Nyong’o, 35, echoed the sentiment: “It’s flattering at the end of the day. I think it’s such a rare thing to find people you have good chemistry with and too for us to find each other as actors and get to work together, it makes the work richer that we truly enjoy each other’s company on and off screen,” she explained to ET.
Jordan has slid into fans’ direct messages in search of romance, though. “Yes, I have,” he told Chrissy Teigen, who was co-hosting DeGerenes’ show, when she asked if he’d “hooked up” via direct message online. “I have, I have, I have, I have. I’m human, I’m human. Not often, but yes, I have.”
When Teigen joked that her assistant was interested and “ready for kids,” Jordan hinted that he wasn’t exactly ready for something that serious.
“I’mma take my time and ease on into that,” he replied.
