Ian Somerhalder: Proof He Cares More About Nikki Reed Than Nina Dobrev

Ian Somerhalder is taking sides when it comes to choosing between his new love Nikki Reed and his ex-girlfriend of three years, Nina Dobrev. In a shocking move, the 'Vampire Diaries' hottie ONLY follows Nikki on Instagram! Is that a slap in the face to Nina? Ian Somerhalder, 35, is clearly falling in love with Nikki Reed, 26, VERY fast! The new couple just stepped out in public together for the first time for a PDA-filled farmer's market date on July 20, but things must be getting serious behind closed doors. Ian follows a VERY small number of people on Instagram, which includes Nikki, but not his friend, Vampire Diaries costar and ex love, Nina Dobrev, 25.

Ian Somerhalder Following Nikki Reed On Instagram: He Care More For Her Than Nina

Nikki is one of only 20 people Ian follows on the social media photo sharing site. Despite their new love, Ian’s publicly showing the world he wants to see what Nikki is up to all the time!

A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Ian and Nikki are “really taking things slow because they don’t want to ruin their friendship, but there are also feelings there between the two.” Ian following his new lady love online shows just how deeply he cares about her! 

We think an Instagram follow is a VERY public way to pledge your allegiance to someone. Do you? During their breakup, Ian and Nina have insisted they remain close friends — but now that Ian’s dating Nikki, it seems like some things have changed. We’ve even learned Nina was “kept in the dark” about Ian and Nikki’s new romance! 

Nina Dobrev: Kept In The Dark About Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed’s Romance

Just like the rest of us, Nina learned of her ex-boyfriend and close friend Nikki’s romance when photos of the duo started popping up on the internet. We know why!

“Ian and Nikki are still in the trial stage of their relationship and they haven’t shared with many that they are testing it out. They don’t ever want to broadcast to the world what they are doing in their personal life, especially if it isn’t going to go anywhere,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

What do YOU think about Ian following only Nikki on Instagram, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
