Report: 'Vampire Diaries' Stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Split
Vampire Diaries' costars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have split after more than 3 years together, according to UsWeekly.
The couple, who met on set of their hit CW series, kept their romance under wraps for a while before going public in 2011.
An insider says the two are "consummate professionals" and "will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is how the relationship started."
Nina said she didn't want to get involved with Ian initially, telling Seventeen: "I didn't want to be dating one of my costars--my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can't help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long--which I did for a really, really long time."
No word on why the two are splitting, but Nina's been spending time with her freshly single friend Julianne Hough. The BFFs went on a vacation to Miami and attended the Met Gala together in NYC this week, while Ian is in Brussels on behalf on his charity foundation.
