SNOOKER star Reanne Evans SNUBBED her ex Mark Allen's fist-bump as they met at the British Open.
The feuding former couple, both 35, had a daughter in 2006 – but split two years later.
They went to court when Evans demanded more maintenance for their girl, now 14.
And eyebrows were raised when they were drawn together at this year's British Open.
Twelve-times women’s world champion Evans walked out first, punching the air and geeing up the crowd with former Masters champion Allen, sporting a mask, following well behind.
Allen then nervously offered a fist bump before Evans broke off.
But he was left hanging as she shunned the attempt and turned her back and set about sending the cue ball down the table.
In April, Northern Irish ace Allen asked Evans, working as a BBC pundit, to leave a room where he was practising at the World Championships.

Prior to the clash, a source said: “It’s the draw the fans want for added spice, but the one the authorities didn’t want because it’s so awkward.
"Players usually shake hands but no one is quite sure what will happen.”
Each player has previously vowed to behave professionally should they meet.
Mandy Fisher, of World Women’s Snooker, said of the battle of the exes match-up: “It will be compelling.”
