The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder split from his co-star Nina Dobrev a few weeks back and it was recently suggested that he was moving on, by dating model Ana Beatriz Barros. Ian has now addressed the rumours that he and Ana are dating, insisting that they are just friends and claiming that she already has a boyfriend.
Somerhalder posted a picture of himself with Ana, along with the following, "Was hanging loose with my friend @anabbofficial and yes ladies I stress the word "FRIEND" she is my friend and a special one at that. Yup this lovely lady has a kick-ass boyfriend-not me;) No hating out there only love."
It continued, "If anything Follow her-I am, you'll see beautiful landscapes, people and probably get massive fashion tips that one can only get from a sweet, smart and deep super model! Enjoy ladies and play nice!Take care of my buddy,whom I adore, out there in our digital world! Love, Ian."
So, with that said, it must mean that Ian Somerhalder is still single. Ladies, form an orderly queue!
Ian Somerhalder can be seen in his familiar role of Damon Salvatore, when The Vampire Diaries season five premieres on The CW on October 10.
