Say it ain’t so — one of Hollywood’s most adorable and seemingly perfect couples has called it quits! The Vampire Diaries co-stars and real life lovers Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder split after three years together.
The biggest problem here is that The Vampire Diaries has already been picked up for a fifth season, meaning Nina and Ian will be forced to work together in close corners while filming. However, a source says that both are professional and they will “continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started.”
Right…because that always works out so easily.
Although Nina and Ian have been a high-profile duo since confirming their relationship in 2011, they’ve remained very low key and have avoided major media attention, unlike other power couples like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. Lately, Nina has been spending a lot of time with her (also) newly single gal pal Julianne Hough, though, which could be her inspiration for wanting to log some boyfriend-less time of her own.
Don’t worry, though — even though Nina and Ian are done, there’s still a few TV co-stars with off-screen romances making it work! Check ‘em out here!
