Even though there are many fans out there that hope to see the handsome Ian Somerhalder back together with his ex, Nina Dobrev, their reunion might never happen, because "The Vampire Diaries" actor seems to be madly in love with his actual girlfriend, Nikki Reed.
The couple recently attended the third annual “Unlikely Heroes Awards Dinner and Gala” and sources whisper that they were more close than ever. "He looked enamoured and crazy in love with her. They couldn't keep their hands off each other", said another attendee at the event, confirming that the two actors are more than happy to spend time together no matter where they are and they don't leave each other's side.
This might infuriate some of Somerhalder’s ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev’s fans, which didn’t hold their negative reactions in the past, either, when the tall dark handsome 'stranger' Somerhalder decided that it’s time to move on and start a new relationship. "Do you care about me? Ask yourself that question. What's the answer? Is it yes? If it is—then please be happy for me. Stop this nonsense - you're spreading horrible energy into the world," wrote the actor on his Instagram page. "Do some research of the person you say sucks or you hate. You'll find that she's a magical person doing great things in the world”, added “The Vampire Diaries” star dodging fan's hatred towards his new girlfriend.
Somerhalder and Reed started dating a few months ago, the actor bringing his girlfriend even on the set of “The Vampire Diaries” series, where he co-stars with his ex, Nina Dobrev, as an on-screen couple. Some sources said that their obvious love flaunting disturbs Dobrev, which might make her leave the TV show, while others say that Dobrev is perfectly fine with this and that even supports their relationship. Plus, the actor recently insisted on the fact that there isn’t any kind of tension between Dobrev and him on the set. "Everything is incredible right now, there are no rifts, there are no tiffs, there's nothing, it's incredible.(…)We're extremely fortunate on our show, it's a giant love fest, everyone loves each other, it's pretty awesome", explained the star not a long time ago.
We think that the truth might probably just somewhere in the middle, but what seems to be pretty solid is that the couple Somerhalder-Reed gets stronger with every day that passes,while the negativity of the public who disapproves their relationship seems to consolidate their bond instead of creating breaches as some may hope.
