Compared to some celebrity couples, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder had a relatively peaceful breakup, but it wasn’t exactly a cleansed a. After calling it quits in 2013, the couple had to continue to portray on-screen love interests for several more years, which could have made things very awkward. Fortunately, the exes have always remained cordial, at least publicly. In 2014, Dobrev and Somerhalder even made fun of their breakup when they accepted their award for “Favorite On-Screen Chemistry” at the People’s Choice Awards.
Around this time, Somerhalder’s whirlwind romance with “Twilight” actor NIkki Reed began, culminating in a marriage about a year and a half later, according to USA Today. Given the timing of Dobrev’s departure on “Vampire Diaries”, it has been speculated that Somerhalder’s wedding was the real reason Dobrev left “The Vampire Diaries”.
However, Dobrev and Somerhalder have remained on good terms. “When I found out about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful,” Dobrev shared with Y! news. “They look happy and I’m happy, so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that,” Dobrev said. In the years since, Dobrev has maintained a friendship not only with Somerhalder, but also with his wife, Reed. During a 2019 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” Dobrev addressed critics who may think his decision is out of the ordinary. “I don’t think it’s weird at all. I think it’s great,” he said.
