Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev’s split may have surprised us greatly and left us feeling a little shocked and shaken last week but an insider has claimed that it wasn’t unexpected for those in the know and close to the former couple.
The pair’s breakup was first reported last week, just a month after they both finished filming the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries. After the shooting wrapped Ian headed to Europe alone, while Nina went on a girls holiday with her pal Juliette Hough and a source told E! Online that even then, the pair knew a more permanent separation was on the cards.
The former couple were reunited at the CW Upfronts event this week, however an insider told E! that it wasn’t an uncomfortable meeting for either beautiful star, insisting:
“They’re still friends.
“There’s no bad blood between them. There was no other person involved or any big fight.”
The source also revealed that the former lovebirds still chat to each other every day and remain close, adding:
“They still talk daily. This wasn’t something out of the blue.”
However, when in public at the CW event the pair avoided so much as looking at each other, never mind talking to one another and an onlooker claimed that the whole thing looked awkward, saying:
“As they walked off stage, Nina was a stride or two ahead of Ian.”
To help him get over the split, Ian has been throwing himself into his environmental work and yesterday he shared a picture of his new hybrid ride and added the caption:
“My new baby,my @Audi Q5 Hybrid.She’s waiting for me on the show room floor-going to pull my Airstream and get me into the woods!Thank you Kevin Fenner &everyone at Audi & Jim Ellis Audi Marietta.I honestly miss the chill warm life in Georga.”
He later added:
“So stoked- beauty beauty beauty-Im so ready for off-road excursion with a 22Ft bambi.@airstream_inc SO GREEN SO RIGHT”
He then told his followers:
” “if you’re in Marietta GAarea&want to stop by @JimEllisAudi take a look at her(My Q5)Drop me a note inside-just Please dont write on seats!;””
We have a feeling he’s going to regret that offer.
