After staying mum on the issue, the actress is finally opening up about how she really feels about the newlyweds and whether or not her exit had anything to do with them. "I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship," Nina told E! News.
"I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him, and that didn't change," she continued. "Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now."
The Let's Be Cops star continued, saying, "When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy, and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that."
When news first broke last year that Ian and Nikki were dating, Vampire Diaries fans weren't exactly thrilled, considering they wanted Ian and Nina to get back together. The fact that Ian and Nina used to go on double dates with Nikki and her then husband Paul McDonald back in the day also didn't help.
Still, Nina said her friendship with Ian is drama free. "The drama is in the media, it's not with us," she said. "But of course, we're on a teen drama show, everyone's going to look for drama. If there's no drama, there's nothing to write about. I just ignore it."
