Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are said to be at strong point in their relationship. The two have been spotted going on a date plethora of times and have no regrets in showing their romance in public. However, it is being said that Nikki, Ian and Nina share the same circle of friend and this has gotten things get a bit awkward when they all hang out together.
"It's a little awkward right now because they have the same friend circle as Nina and no one is quite sure how to react," the source told Hollywoodlife.
However, Ian and Nikki got close post Ian and Nina's break-up. This means that Nikki did not steal Ian from Nina and started her alleged relationship with "Vampire Diaries" star from a clean slate.
"But it's not like Nikki stole him away from Nina, they've been broken up more than a year. But it's still a bit awkward for everyone, they're all waiting for Nina's blessing," the source further told the Web site.
In spite of the reports, it seems doubtful that Nina is upset with Nikki and Ian. Much recently it was suggested that Nina is over Ian and has no intention of dating him again. It was reported that they both are professionals and are moving on with their own lives and have buried the hatchet.
"Nina is over him to the point that she doesn't have to date him ever again, but she will always love him," the source told the Web site about the exes. "She can't hate him because that would make things weird on the show and would make so many things go into shambles. She knows that she can't be unprofessional."
Nina and Ian were in a solid relationship before they called it quits in 2013. Since then the two have maintained a professional and friendly front. Fans hope that just like Ian, Nina also opens a fresh page in her love life.
