Bristol Palin was in tears last week as she spoke to PEOPLE about the humiliation that led her to break up – again – with Levi Johnston. But Johnston appears to be happily playing around Hollywood.

“Oh, we’re friends. The ring’s off, but we’re friends, so everything’s good,” Johnston told PEOPLE at Sunday’s Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles, where he had Brittani Senser on his arm. He told PEOPLE his date was “just a friend. She s a singer.”

It was the second time in as many days the two were spotted together, and Johnston, 20, is actually set to appear opposite Senser in her upcoming music video for her R&B song “After Love.” This is the video that Palin, 19, referred to Johnston’s lying about in a recent PEOPLE interview: “He told me [his trip to L.A.] was to see some hunting show, but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family.”
