It’s always awkward seeing an ex move on — especially when it’s with another vampire, right? For Nina Dobrev, she still has to work with ex, Ian Somerhalder. So, she’s actually focused on their friendship, a source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
When Ian Somerhalder, 35, and Nina Dobrev, 25, accepted the award for Ship of the Year at the mtvU Fandom Awards July 24, the on-again off-again couple seemed super friendly, and even joked about their “ups and downs.” However, now that Ian has moved on to fellow-vamp, Nikki Reed, 26, Nina’s finally putting her past relationship behind her!
Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Split — Moving On Now
“Nina has gone on with her dating life just as much as Ian has, and they both made a decision not to ruin the show or their friendship with their feelings on outside relationships,” a source close to The Vampire Diaries stars told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “They are good, and they will be good if Ian and Nikki take it to the next level.”
We told you that Nina had no clue that her ex had moved on with Nikki, as they all used to be friends when Nikki was married to singer, Paul McDonald.

“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,” the source told us, adding that they don’t want to broadcast it to the world. “They are definitely keeping others feelings close as they work on their decisions to start an exclusive relationship together. They don’t want to upset anyone. It is beyond baby steps right now between the two and Nina hasn’t been told anything.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Ian and Nina are done for good? Or will they get back together? Let us know!
