Is Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev upset over Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed relationship?

by Emily H


New couple alert! ‘The Vampire Diaries’ actor Ian Somerhalder and ‘Twilight’ star Nikki Reed have been flaunting their new relationship all over town recently.

The new couple have been photographed several times recently. Last Saturday, they were spotted on a run in Los Angeles, and the next day, they were spotted hanging out again at a local Farmers market.

But how does Somerhalder’s co-star and former flame Nina Dobrev feel about his new romance?

Somerhalder and Dobrev dated in private for three years, but split back in May of last year.

Since her ex and Reed’s new relationship became public, Dobrev has been taking to Instagram to post a number of quotes, which fans believe are aimed at the new couple.

She posted the cryptic quote below yesterday, which was a regram from Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse;

Over the past few days, the actress has also posted: “Pretty words aren’t always true and true words aren’t always pretty”, as well as, “You cannot hang out with negative people and expect to live a positive life”.

Though she did not specify exactly what (or who!) the quotes were in relation to, if Dobrev is upset about the new romance, it’s pretty understandable.

Reed and Dobrev have reportedly been friends for years, since both broke through with their respective vampire hits (Reed starred in 2008’s ‘Twilight’, and Dobrev in ‘The Vampire Diaries’, which began airing on The CW in 2009).


Reed was previously married to American Idol contestant Paul McDonald, who she filed for divorce from in May of this year.
