Of course not. Since he was married he can't just get divorced and then claim some kind of relationship with you. The two of you would have to re-marry and that would be up to you if you want to get back into a relationship with him. Until that he has absolutely no right to your property.
It would take a while for the common law because you would be starting anew. He would not gain half of the property simply because he moved back in with you.
