Former "The Vampire Diaries" actor Ian Somerhalder seemed to have moved on completely from his ex and co-star Nina Dobrev. The actor is reportedly dating "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed. The news about Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed's romance came as a surprise not only for "TVD" fans but also for Nina Dobrev, according to a latest report. It seems the news has not gone down too well with "TVD’s" Elena, who is thought to have virtually "dissed" Ian Somerhalder through social media. Read on for more details.
The 35-year-old actor Ian Somerhalder sparked dating rumours after he was spotted with Nikki Reed. Daily Mail reported Somerhalder could "barely keep his hands off" Nikki Reed. Nikki Reed is reportedly a common friend of Somerhalder and his ex Dobrev. The report notes the former couple used to "double date" with Reed and her then boyfriend Paul McDonald.
It is said that despite Somerhalder and Dobrev's friendly relation with each other after the breakup, the actress was unaware of what was coming. Dobrev wasn't "told anything" about Somerhalder and Reed's burgeoning romantic relationship. An insider told the Hollywood Life that Somerhalder and Reed are "still in the trial stage of their relationship and they haven't shared with many that they are testing it out."
The source reveals that at Studio City Farmers Market "Nikki and Ian were totally into each other." They didn't even feel "shy" about showing off their "affection for each other" in public. However, the new couple is reportedly "keeping others [Nina & Paul's] feelings close as they work on their decisions to start an exclusive relationship together."
Recent reports about Dobrev "dissing" Somerhalder over Nikki Reed dating rumours suggests she is not too pleased with the news. "The Vampire Diaries" actress recently posted a poem on Instagram. Another report by Hollywood Life infers the poem seemingly expresses her feelings about Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder's romance. The poem reads:
"I give You take I break You fake PITY, I bleed You dive in deep Into my blood Thick as syrup Tell me Are you a mosquito?"
The site further speculates that even if the poem is not about the new couple, it "reflects" Dobrev's "negative state of mind." In another report, the Web site suggests that Nina Dobrev may have called Ian Somerhalder "a fool" in another Instagram message. She posted a quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton and captioned it: "A fool flatters himself, a wise man flatters the fool." The Web site notes that Dobrev and Somerhalder kept their relationship well concealed for years, and now, Somerhalder is "flaunting his romance with Nikki" publicly. What do you think?
"The Vampire Diaries" stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder dated each other for almost 3 years before breaking up recently. They romanced each other both onscreen and offscreen. For those who don't know, Nikki Reed has also once played the role of a vampire. She portrayed Rosalie Hale, adopted daughter of Cullens in "Twilight."
