Reports of yet another Nina Dobrev Ian Somerhalder breakup are abuzz, even as the actors receive nominations for this August’s Teen Choice Awards.
“The Vampire Diaries” co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have been together for at least three years, though in on-off relationships. Recent reports said the couple broke up was expected, though for reasons unverified.
The recent breakup was considered as temporary, based on the couple’s tumultuous history. Speculations that Dobrev’s relationship with Somerhalder is open and ongoing is somewhat debunked, though, with accounts the TVD heroine is spotted with other men.
Insider source to Ok! Magazine paired Dobrev on a night-out date with James Marsden, at Bourbon Street’s Cat’s Meow. The source pegged the couple was more than friendly on the date, engaged more in kissing than singing. An eyewitness to the same incident confirmed that “Nina thinks James is hot. They have met before and they did hook up and had a great time.”
Speculations for the Nina Dobrev Ian Somerhalder breakup is still up in the air, as is with anything in the couple’s long-time, previous relationship. The couple kept people guessing about their affairs early in their stint at “The Vampire Diaries,” whether it was strictly professional, friendly, or romantic.
Prior to her involvement with Marsden, 40, Dobrev was seen with Muse’s Dominic Howard in two engagements: April’s Coachella Music Festival and May’s Grand Prix de Monaco.
Both Dobrev and Somerhalder received
multiple nominations to this August Teen Choice Awards for their roles in “The Vampire Diaries.” The couple is keeping their professional and personal relationship separate.
Dobrev was quoted in an August 2013 Cosmopolitan interview, shedding light on the Nina Dobrev Ian Somerhalder breakup: “People aren’t defined by their relationships. The whole point is being true to yourself and not losing yourself in relationships, whether romances or friendships… I need to know all those things before I fall for someone. I’m not a one-night-stand kind of girl. I’m a relationship girl.” (
