Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev Split

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have gone their separate ways in their relationship, sources confirm to JustJared.com.

The 24-year-old actress and 34-year-old actor currently co-star on the hit CW series The Vampire Diaries as Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore, respectively.

Ian and Nina are “consummate professionals,” and “will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started,” a source told Us Weekly about the break-up.

The Vampire Diaries season finale airs on May 16.

no I’m not sad , I’ve never thought they looked great together , I mean in real life .. Though I love them on-screen .
Plus they have a gap of 10 years which is huuuge .

# 2

Part of me is sad but the age gap with them is a big deal . I thought they were cute together . Hope they can remain civil despite their breakup they do work .

# 3

I am very upset I liked how they look together

# 4

if they did break up thats kinda sad. i mean i never watched vampire diaries or anything but they have been together for a long time.

# 5

thank you! i don’t like him, i don’t like her and i don’t like both together.
paul wesley is a much better actor and much more professional. he needs much more attention than this two … in my opinion

# 6

It’s sad. But she seems a little too superficial for him. She’s all about career and fashion and he’s deeper. He would be more suited to Sophia Bush.

# 7

I liked them together.. I thought they were gonna make it :(
Anyway, I still love them both!

# 8

It was just a matter of time, but I did think they would last a little longer.

# 9

He’s ugly and annoying, she can do waaaaay much better.

UGH. Here comes the usual bitter PW fans. Jesus.

Thought they looked good together, ah well.

I can’t say I’m shocked. The age difference between them is huge and she did turn down his marriage proposal a few years back stating that she was too young to be thinking about marriage. On the other hand, Ian isn’t in his 20s and he needs to find someone that wants to commit long term. She has her whole youth ahead of her. I hope this means that her character on VD will go back to Stefan. The reason the writers broke Stefan and Elena up was because of Ian’s reported discomfort with Nina and Paul’s intimate scenes so when the storyline changed they made Elena fall for Damon (albeit because of the sire bond). I just hope the show doesn’t suffer as a result of this. There are too many cases in TV history where dating co-stars have caused the end to a relationship. The O.C. for example.

How are we going to sit here and believe it? I mean US weekly is the same magazine that asked them what they loved about the cast members and only published what ian and nina loved about each other rather than what things they loved about the cast. Magazines are NOTORIOUS for twisting and manipulating words in their benefit so the story sells. Until you see either one of them doing couply things with someone else or have couply pictures with someone else. It is just a load of BS

Ian deserves someone better than Nina! She is a selfish b****!

um, age is just a number. I can’t believe you guys are judging them of age. I thought they were great together and I’m pretty sad that they broke up but owell.

blue.ocean @ 05/09/2013 at 8:58 am

I’m sorry but it is their life, I hope they are happy.. I must say though that if it were true that Ian has another girl for a while I would be sorry, only 15 days ago called Nina “my girl” in front of the fans. I’d hate to think were a mockery of his words. I hope the rest do not have problems at work, they have to work together much more

People should respect their relationship. It’s rude and shallow to invade privacy of others. I hope USweekly, Just Jared and all the other stuff would be sensitive enough to at least show some respect.

I loved them together!!!!!! One of the reasons I loved the vampire diaries was because they were together!!:((

@CC: You have to stop with your constant BULLYING! “Delena’s” have ruined this once great show for every single fan of this show. Your constant pressure for Ian and Nina to date, constant whining when the CHARACTER Nina plays would look at the other ACTOR’S on the show you have RUINED THIS SHOW! TVD’s had a lot of fans who loved ALL the characters. But, whenever anyone says or said anything about Nina and Ian’s CHARACTERS you would call them Stelena’s. You guys put so much pressure on Nina and Ian they had to ACT like they were together, just to satisfy you “Delena’s”. Even they’ve had enough of pretending. Ian is very much involved in his foundation and Nina is on her way to becoming an actor on the big screen. TVD’s is going to be back for season 5 but pretty sure YOU Delena bully’s have made it impossible for people to enjoy this show anymore. Their probably won’t be a season 6 viewer’s are fed up and tired of the constant Delena’s whining when the show doesn’t show them in every scene. Yay for Nina, you go girl. Your only young once, ENJOY yourself!

Ian met a new girlfriend very quickly. I wish him luck.
Nina is sad. But she is young and beautiful.
A successful career is very good but woman’s happiness is more important.
A lot of beautiful successful Hollywood Actresses have no happiness in his personal life.
I like Nina and I wish her happiness and joy in life.

He is a way better actor and a more interesting person.

now all the girls’ excursions out make perfect sense.

might be awkward on set but it can be done fine and has been done lots of times like on Dexter – and those two were married.
also One Tree Hill- again both married.
they’ll be fine.
they seem like nice people.
they’ll be friends.
wonder what happened tho.

Good luck Nina!

Well I”m not sure this is true. I mean the media is known for starting falls rumors. But if it’s true it’s quite sad. I’m a Stelena fan but that has only to do with the characters. Nevertheless I thought Nina and Ian formed a lovely couple and they look great together.
I don’t even know if this is true but if it is I hope they stay friends and that they split on good terms. It’s true that the age gap is huge I suppose. It’s understandable that Nina being so young must not want the same things as Ian which is totally normal, she’s got her youth ahead of her. But anyway this might only be a rumor. Age being just a number maybe the gap is not a problem for them.
I do hope, that if they are no longer together it won’t effect the show. It would be a pity. We’ll see how professional they are. After all they started out just as friends.

If it is true, I am extremely sad and I hope from the deep of my heart that they can solve their problem or their misunderstanding, because they are a beautiful couple. They are great together!!

i guess she finally got tired of his annoying sideways smile…

US is a rag mag. I will believe it when their reps release a statement to People. Untill then I’m calling BS

@JJ The Expat: LOL! You are wrong about Stefan and Elena breaking up due to Ian’s discomfort. If you notice the show follows the actual books in a very mild manor. The books are extremely far out there which TVD does not partake in but some of the actual plots are similar. The orignial writer wanted Damon and Elena to be together however the publishing companies were not ok with that. (if you don’t believe me you may research)

Noooooooooooooo

Gossip Cop : Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder Split: Report http://www.gossipcop.com/nina-dobrev-ian-somerhalder-split-breakup-broke-up-may-2013/

@Emma: Wow, you can tell you are a Stelena fan. There are far more “Delena fans” than there are “Stelena fans” firstly. Secondly, perhaps the fans were getting whiney and annoyin because they wanted these 2 to have a fair shot. If you have truly watched every episode you will see the connection that was brewing between the 2 characters. As a society we crave love and perhaps fans just wanted to see the “delena love” have a chance.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
.
The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don’t accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don’t like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
.
Al Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYBODY to know that they can read minds!!! They will never admit that they can!
.
Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.
.
PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

Nina must be with Julianne Hough now….. That is who she spends all of her time with. Way too much touch feely going on between those two.

I think Nina can spend her time with who want!

@Marsha:

Agreed. It’s not official until their reps confirm it to People magazine.

Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi @ 05/09/2013 at 10:39 am

Maybe I’m the 1 who not desperate b/c of their separation. And I thnk 10 yrs gap’s smth 1 should concentrate on when he/she’s in love.

Noooooooooo!! Why! They were so perfect!!! :(

I saw this coming, but very sad…

@Emma:

Yeah, I don’t think Nina will do a good job on the big screen. I will be amazed if she does. Plus, this show sucks now. I liked it at first, but most of the actors can’t well, act.

On a different, but related note.

Are you guys butthurt that the haters were right. Haha.

who cares about these nobodies

Kristen and Rob are outlasting SO many celebrity couples. Everyone keeps saying they are going to split up or that they are PR but the fact is they are making it work under a heck of a lot of scrutiny, much less than these tv couples. Katy Perry has met, married and divorced Russell Brand in the length Rob and Kristen have been dating. Just a little middle finger to all you Robsten bashers. LOL!

Nina needs to grow up. She has been all about walking the red carpet, fashion and partying. She is 24! That being said there are a lot of women married with children at 24-but that’s not who she is.

I love Ian, love what he stands for. I wish him the best!

They have been giving hints for the past few weeks eg. Nina acting like a newly single woman hanging out with gal pals (Julianne), Ian stating on his china interview it will be a long time before he will become a parent (because he has no baby momma) and the way they schedule their summer barely in the same country together.

Aaaaand of course Ian’s stupid fangirls start blaming Nina and calling her names. So sexist and even worse coming from other women.

yeah…the comments here are only from the haters because the fans doesnt believe rummors

message for silly fans of Ian: just because they have split not see why have to call Nina “bit..”. grow up!

I’m kind of indifferent about their split. It doesn’t affect anyone but them. I do feel like they were kind of an odd match to begin with, but in Hollywood almost everyone splits, so this doesn’t surprise me at all.

Can’t say i’m suprisedas it’s been months since they have been seen together at the last sightning at the airport where they were suppoedly holding handsd she was holding Ian’s fist not hishand ike a normal coupl would.

I’l be honest the whole sire bond crap and puting Damon/Elena together on th show has backfired on JP so much I used to love watchng th BVD but or me this seaon has been the worsttogether a amon and Elenathey just dopn’t come across as a coupl i love or even ikeing each other at times the writer’s have had o man story lines going on this season and it’s trned into a rightmess. For m they have never been beleiavable as a couple on the show friend at a push yes but anyting else no.

And who’s to say that Ian was’nt uncomfortable with how well Paul and Nina get on and again I’ll be honest I find there scenes togethr much morebeleiavable and always have from day 1 long before Ian and Nina became a couple and long before Paul got married some tv couples just click on tv but nothing is going on with them and some don’t for me Ian an Nina have never clicked on a tv screen there’s jut something that always seems off ad especially when they triedintimate scenes it just wasn’t there.

I saw this coming from a mile away… I feel it is not just the age factor but they are at different stages of their careers as well.

On the other hand ..it is funny that Nina is the scapegoat of this situation. Nina is young and actually has a legit chance of making it into mainstream Hollywood (she has already signed up for a new movie). She cannot do this without promoting herself. This is the entertainment industry we are talking about where you are as good as your previous legit work. She has to work hard to remove that CW tag off her back to get any kind of success.

Ian dated sooo many girls,but i think he will never find his love….though i adore nian,they were cute togather….

@Pauline:
10 years gap means nothing. My husband and I have a 12 year gap and its better than most relationships I’ve seen. I think you pointing that out was really unnecessary, it really isn’t that huge. Especially considering women mature way faster than men.

Personally, I’m not sad they’ve split…it happens…

i dont understand,what wsa the reason,they broke up,i were cute toghter,zanessa,robsten,jelena and now nian….:( now im hating hoolywood relationships.

I don’t see why people are making a big deal about a 10 year age gap… That is completely normal nowadays… It’s not like she’s only 15 and he’s 10 years older!! Anyway… I’m quite sad to see them split although only because I imagine their relationship to be like what it is on TVD!

I dont understand,what is the reason they broke up….i m sooo sad:(,i cant see ian with another girl,he was perfect with nina

If this is true we should show some respect to both of them. No need calling names either of them or say anything else for that matter. We can’t really know what happened so lets just leave it there. Wish them both well, hope they will stay friends and good colleagues.

@Claire:
Thank God I’m not the only one who sees that Ian and Sophia are made for each other! :P

alexandrina @ 05/09/2013 at 11:51 am

the showmance is over?? or need more rating for TVD?

I can’t believe that whether these two should stay together is being based, by some fans, on how they look together.

@cmac – this ^

@cmac: lol … very true :)

@JJ The Expat: I highly doubt he proposed to her, especially a few years back considering they’ve only been dating for two years……

Anyway, I don’t like Nina at all. She seems kind of rude and pretentious. She’s not a good actor. I don’t really care for Ian much either, but he’s an amazing actor.

Nina’s probably doing her publicist and Ian’s probably doing his ISF Exec Director. Nothing new and different in Hollywood to see here.

He gay and her a lesbian. …showmance over

Nina changed so much over the Years, from the cute little girl to a very arrogant and selfish person! She doesn’t care about her fans, all she wants is attention on the red carpet! Fame has gotten to her head! I can totally understand why Ian split with her.

After those news were out, Ian tweeted this: A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
People change and forget to tell each other. -Lillian Hellman ( says a lot, don’t you think?)

Ian’s tweet right before the stories come out was suspicious like she’s telling someone they have change. I hope she’s not referring to Nina and if he is I bet Julianne have a lot of influence on Nina good or bad.

Seriously? @ 05/09/2013 at 12:28 pm

@godlike:
and before you spread your hate you should learn correct english. something called a verb for example.

@Snldiva: Question, if their are more delenas as you have said then why has the ratings the viewers gone down? I mean you delenas got what you wanted. This season has been about delena. Yet people have stopped watching. Why is that? Could it be the delenas are not as many as you think? I think so. Bottom line is you are not the majority of the fanbase. The majority was fans of all the characters and the show as a whole. You guys are always whining. You whined when they weren’t together, you whined when they got together, you whined when they do anything so delenas are still watching. Newsflash you are not the majority. Unless you literally knock on every door and ask each and every person in that house why or who they love on the show. You cannot say you’re the majority.

@Emma: from my view point, Emma, YOU’RE the bully! geez, girl! what does this have to do with TVD? this is their personal relationship. THEY haven’t even confirmed if these RUMORS are true. so just chill out!

and the show isn’t suffering because of their relationship, it’s because of these ridiculous shipping wars… DELENA, STELENA… wtf! just grow up!

It’s a SHOW.
if you have a problem with how things in the show played out, BLAME THE WRITERS, BLAME THE PRODUCERS, NOT THE FANS!

FANS don’t write the show, they watch it -_-

Nina is ugly .And Ian deserves someone better than Nina!!!!!!!

@eva: and you’re ridiculous!

I will believe it when I truly see it. I don’t know how many times they have broken up only to find out they never did. Who cares about the age gap. My parents are 14yrs apart & have been happily married for 37 years.
If they really broke up then I am sad. Nina & Ian make a cute couple.

Ian can do much better! Seriously

I don’t think anyone really cares aside from the people who actually watch their show. That said, she is really beautiful and he is kind of weird looking.

why are people bringing up the age gap, look at catherine zeta jones and michael douglas(25 years age gap), harrison ford and calista flockhart( 22 years age gap) who have been together for years now.

i though they were a lovely couple

The funny thing is, once again, it is only a rumor until you hear it from one of them. Slow down the assumptions. Ian is off running from place to place for pre-existing obligations I remember him talking about a few months back. So, since Nina is doing her own thing, of course that means it is over..right? Seriously, this is Hollywood.. each of these guys have obligations they need to fulfill in hopes of furthering their careers..they can’t be with each other 100% of the time.

Rupert Sanders @ 05/09/2013 at 1:07 pm

Nina should be Tom Cruise’s girlfriend

@Rupert Sanders @ 05/09/2013 at 1:23 pm

@Rupert Sanders: LOL!!!!!!!!

@JJ The Expat:
Actually, if you know the story line, it is a love triangle. She has her connections with Stefan and Damon. In the books, Damon and Elena actually spend more quality time together than her and Stefan. So, I wouldn’t say that the Delana stuff is forced because they were dating in real life. However, it DID make for an awesome love scene in episode 7 :)

@JJ The Expat:
If you have watched all episodes, you will see that Elena was in love with Damon waaay before the whole “sire bond” thing. She just didn’t act on it – oh except for the time at the motel when she attacked him and she only stopped because Jeremy interrupted.

This is where I come in. Nina and I are the same age, we’re both from Toronto, and it’s a great opportunity for her to date someone who’s not in the business, which tends to work better I think. Plus, if Ian isn’t what she’s looking for, then I like my chances, because I look the complete opposite. I do have a college diploma and a university degree though. Does that count for something?

no sad cause ian can get new girlfirend :D :P
reality.

Good! She is now free to pursue Alexander Skarsgard.

If Ian needs a new girlfriend, I’m available! ;)

Really sad that Ian and Nina have gone their seperate ways. But not everything in the press is 100% true. Hope both of them will find someone perfect for themself if this turns out to be true.

I hope there will still be a series five of The Vampire Diaries and that the sexual tension will not take over.

Really hope these rumors are false because they were a really good couple.

Lucy.

If its true, Im sorry for them. When a love relationship fails, it is always hard and sad.

i really like them together and i thought that they would go a long way but i can’t do anything about and nor can you guys. i just hope that the tv show doesn’t get affected because iam a huge delena fan. but frankly speaking, ian deserves someone much more better than nina. don’t get me wrong she is kind of cute and such but ian deserves someone much more mature and of his caliber.

i really dont care… i never really liked them together…just my opinion… that doesnt mean i would want paul to replace ian.. no because i love torrey and paul together… i just dont care..

busted-oops @ 05/09/2013 at 4:05 pm

shouldn’t of been fooling around with her bestie.. Oops.

@Claire: oh , I agree with the shallow part – but sophia bush ? Why her ? :)

The truth is Nina is addicted to the limelight. I’m not judging her for that, she’s young. She wants fame, she wants to be an A list celebrity, she doesn’t want to continue being known as a girl who works on the CW (similar to Blake Lively). She wants to climb the social latter. Hence, Nina attending every red carpet event possible. She loves the paparazzi, attention that comes with it. Ian, on the other hand, is way more reserved. I knew they just weren’t going to last.

Ians PA Girl @ 05/09/2013 at 4:33 pm

@Claire: I so agree agree with the Sophia Bush comment. They had so much MORE in common with their causes. He should be with a woman – not a girl. And one with substance.

My faith about EPIC LOVE just died. And so did I.

Why am I smiling at this bad news?

because you’re not well

Why do these nobodys put out PR statements about splitting when no no cares. They are both z class actors

They were such a beautiful couple and had so much chemistry.

Traduzione
Ian is not my ideal man too low in stature (5’7) is mediocre as an actor always has the same expression on her face. Ian is too old to Nina. Ian born 1978., Nina born 1989.

That’s going to suck for them. No pun intended. They still have to work together. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to make out with my ex. No thanks.

christine @ 05/09/2013 at 9:28 pm

Not really sure how this will impact my world view…..who cares?

Ian and Sophia Bush would make a great couple.. Good looks and brains..

No **** they broke up. HE’S GAY and she was his beard. Give me a break! Its like Jamie Lynn Sigler and Lance Bass all over again.

I actually did not think they had much chemistry on the carpet or in candids. I think this is just an example of a relationship that just ran it’s course and had nowhere to go. She is much younger than him. At 24, she should be dating lots and lots of different guys.

@Kristen: I always got an asexual vibe from him.

Guess they’ve signed up another one!

Im glad that Nina & Ian broke up cause now we won’t have to see the hater’s on JJ hating on every Nian article that comes out.

whoooaaa! i don’t know if i’m sad with this news or happy. but one thing’s for sure I’M IN SHOCK!!!! :O

I actually find him kind of creepy. Like he always has such a sinister look about him.

@Jane: I actually believe its the opposite Nina seems awkward, uncomfortable and reserve on most of her interviews alone compared to Ian who talks and talks I don’t even know what he’s talking I just stare at him. She’s not tweeting her whereabouts as much as Ian does. She’s a very promising actress and my guess is people managing her career want to build her up and make her attend as many red carpet as possible. She’s kinda like Blake Lively 2.0 brunette version.

People who are waiting for the both of them to officially confirm the break up should give up now because it will NEVER happen. Come on they never even officially confirmed they were together and never talk about each other let alone talk about a break up.

@Rupert Sanders: Brilliant! She would probably upgrade her bearding to an A list star.

@talia: Yes there is a huge age gap there but Nina is 25 and just starting her career and haven’t explored what life has to offer maybe if Nina is 35 and Ian probably 45 it might have work like the realtionship you just stated.

At 24, she is probably looking to grow her career. Right now, she’s 24 and it’s a pivotal time for her to transition from the CW to movies. She seems ambitious.

lilruthieruth @ 05/10/2013 at 1:53 am

not sad i felt it coming
women that age are not ready for commitment

I loved them together :(

@XO:

Sinister? The man is absolutely gorgeous and incredibly sexy without even trying. Some can’t handle his kind of hotness apparently and prefer the cookie cutter vanilla looks.

good luck nina dobrev

@Faye: epic love ? Uh please ! Get a life

seriously? @ 05/10/2013 at 7:25 am

@Pauline:
I am a realy big fan of Ian. Have a lot of respect about him due to his work in ISF an Ryot. Here i will agree with you. I never did see an epic love. What i saw was fans wanting to believe in epic love. I saw a couple with their ups and down like the rest of us. All these presure from the fans it really didn’t do and won’t do any good. People should learn about boundaries.
Anyway if these is true then everybody should respect their decision and wish them both good luck.

Total shock…..thought they were gonna be together for much much longer

She’s too young and shallow for him. Surely a fun girl but not wife material at that age in the middle of her 15 minutes of fame.

So, they broke up and it is not the end of the world. They were good together and I guess the relationship has run its course. But then, you never know. Never say Never.

I’m so happy! can’t get how this average ordinary passer by happens to live in hollywood

-translator my friend- @ 05/10/2013 at 9:36 am

it’s always make me sad when people stop love each other…

Not surprised at all, everyone saw that coming. That sooner or later when the time is right press will say the are over the same as once press said they are together
Hope that now ian can openly live his life and feel free to be with whomever he wanted from the beginning

Not surprised one bit. I think they both were over it but stayed together to promote and keep people interested in their show. Neither look very upset about it.

@Sasha: and would it be?

HeatherHarris06 @ 05/10/2013 at 1:40 pm

If you think Betty`s story is super…, five weaks-ago my girlfriend also earnt $7375 workin twenty hours a week an their house and they’re best friend’s sister-in-law`s neighbour done this for four months and brought in more than $7375 in there spare time from a pc. applie the advice from this address. Jump44.comCHECK IT OUT

:( they were very sweet and together for a longtime its very sad. and just as delena was getting going on tvd. seem real for oncce wouldnt be the first split rumours for these two but i really hope its a lie

‘Shipping’ real life couples is creepy anyway. And, imo, unhealthy. Who wants to let their own emotional state be affected by what two STRANGERS do with their love life? It baffles me. I will never understand why people spend so much time investing their time and energy into a celebrity couple they know nothing about, then feel soooo devastated and gutted when they break up. Crazy.

what i’d like to know is how it’s up to 9 on the real thing when neither nina or ian’s reps confirmed it. it came from a gossip site who is usually wrong and just likes to create rumors.
and plus, these two were in different countries when the rumor came out. nina was in u.s while ian wasn’t. ian was calling nina is girlfriend a few days ago.
I don’t see these two as one of the -lets-break-up-through- text type of people, they’re way too mature for that childish crap. and that quote some are saying that’s about nina on ian’s twitter, you’re wrong. ian is,like, in his 30′s. what guy in that age acts that immature? seriously…

well when same web site wrote that he broke up with his ex Nian shippers were first to trust and jump and down, when all over the world some solid sources says that they broke up Nian shippers says that it is just rumors
Thta is hilarious
they showed so many times that they broke up i guess even before NewYaer because they took friends with then for vacation and fans were to blind to see it
they spend all week ends and holidays openly apart they looked stressed and pathetic and soo fake
fans put to much pressure on them
i can bet that at Upfronts fans wont see two professionals posing together for the show sake they will claim that Nian are still together
Poor ian even if he openly goes with other woman fans will still say she is a friend and he is secretly married to Dobrev

Nian shippers are hilarious. When magazines post articles stating Ian and Nina have broken up, they’re “rumours”. When fans read into Ian’s demeanour and passing comments at a Con, or twitter comments from fans, suddenly it’s the “truth.” They’ll believe ANYTHING that even hints that Nina and Ian are still together, but disregard the fact that basically every news source and publication has published an article stating they’ve broken up.

Today, ian confirmed that he’s still in a rel. with nina. Let this be a lesson to people to only believe things when the reps or the people involve confirm split, not a gossip site.

@marie:

Here is another example of the Nian shippers hearing only what they want to hear. Ian’s comment today at the Con was him talking about something he said to someone at a PAST Con. Listen to the YT video carefully and he clearly is referring to a conversation that was in the past. Yet Nian fans are spreading this misinformation that he and Nina are still together. Shows such a lack of respect to twist his words to suit their own fantasy because they can’t handle what appears to be the reality.

I think they split up some time bk , they have been spending so much time apart then every month do damage control when pple started talking by holding hands . They kept up appearances for the sake of the show . Don`t blame Nina shes young and changing is part of growing up , Ian should find someone his own age and stop being creepy.

seriously? @ 05/12/2013 at 7:32 am

You call yourself fans? You have turned this persons into your own muppets. They are people with feelings. So IF this is truth you should respect that. Stot twisting Ian’s words. He clearly told a storie from the past. But if you wanna keep that why don’t you keep what he told in the begining? That life as television leads you somethimes where you don’t like?
Respect them for Gods shake.Stop twisting his words because it’s not the first time. If you admire Ian for him and what he does not who he dates.
Sames goes for nina.
And Sammy i aggree that Nina is young and has to live many wonderful things but Ian is not creepy. He is a wonderful man so keep this opinion to yourself if you don’t like him. At least respect all the others that like him.
It’t not their age difference here the matter. We don’t know what went wrong. But enough with the speculations and the blame game. They are people, they are profecionals and IF this is true they don’t need you on their back acting all drama queens.

guys, they’re still together. don’t believe anything gossip sites say, alright? unless it comes from nina reps or ian’s, then it’s true. let’s not act like overdramatic people…

@lissa:
well neither then neither their reps confirmed their relationships EVER it was fans who twisted their words and always assumed that they talk about each other not about anyone else and press sold it quite well
The only time reps did a statement was very fast after marriage rumors were published in 2012. That was the only time when smth was official
IF after this break up we will have fantastic reunion very soon and also very fitting to what’s going on on the show it will PROVE that whole Nian thing was always a showmance for ratings
you really want to make them look as people who did used fake relationships for ratings, because when you claim that rumors which were posted exactly at the time of important episode are false then it is the same as you say the whole Nian is fake.
As i say they will continue do their thing and will be seen together because they work together and are friends, but as was said before Nian fans made them as personal muppets!

@Sasha: whoa. I didn’t say they’re fake or whatever. calm down girl.

seriously? @ 05/12/2013 at 1:48 pm

For some reason my comment is awaiting moderation so i will try one more time.
Sorry guys but i will aggree with Sasha here. The timing is weird.
I really admire Ian – he is really smart and i love his work and i find Nina a beautiful girl and talented. I do believe that their relationship is/was real. This break up thing really got out of hand and we don’t have an answer from the reps – the time that we had the marriage rumors the reps declined them really quickly as did Ian and Nina themselfs. Now we have nothing and personally i believe that they don’t have to give as a personal statement. But IF after all this we indeed have a major reunion that fits the TVD storyline that would be really fishy. And i don’t want to see them as persons than used their relationship for the ratings.
I will say again that i do believe that they have/had a real relationship but i don’t believe in the fairytale. They have’had a relationship like the rest of us that makes/made it’s course. Nothing more than that. They fairytales are nice but thats what they are:Fairytales.
That being said, i will say that have some respect for those persons. If they decided to go apart it’s their choice. Stop putings things in their mouths, stop makings manips, stop looking for things like ”omg they look so happy so they are fine- they are profesionals what did you expect them? cry a river in fron of the fans?. When you have to work you have to work and you do it with a smile. People with children are geting divorces and their life continues so why wouldn’t they?
They have the media having a party with their names right now so they don’t need you also. Reeal fans admire and respect them as individuals and really don’t care if they are dating or not. Sorry but they are much more than their relationship.
At the end of the day they are not our friends. They are people that we get glimpse a of their life so we now nothing.

@seriously?:
*know nothing
Sorry for any other typos mistakes! Thank you!

I didn’t want to say that they are fake, i am sorry if it sounded so. It is just if there would be no official and direct comments about break up and then they will be suddenly all reunited in front of paps again especially with how for a long time they been pictured only when smth was in TVD (it is sad for me but i am not blind not to notice the pattern) THAT will show that their relationship looks like Robsten 2.0. Pure fanservice
I might say that i don’t see them as a couple in love like Nian fans tend to write about them – for a long haul, secret marriage e.t.c
I have a serious list of reasons why i think that they have close, comfortable relationships and they still have them. Just break up statement is a try to get off crazy fans from their backs. Because both Nina and Ian always gives vague answers (if they give any at all) about relationships and never call at each other as about lover, always just about friend and co worker. But the pressure is huge, pregnancy rumors, direct question about marriage. So this break up articles is just to throw fans back to earth. I am not saying that my POV is fac but what i see, that two people were very close, may be lovers, may be just very good friends who are forced to spend a lot of time together and play lovers on screen so off screen they try spend a lot of time together to not lose the chemistry (i am not crazy i read an interview with DiCaprio about shooting Titanic and he said that he and Kate spend as much time and week ends together as possible but as friends, so on screen the sparks would fly) but never been that serious as fans claim. And now may be Nina may be Ian need a personal space but because of fans and media they cant. Imagine what would happen if any of them would be seen with anyone else? Cheating rumors even if they are not true are worse than break up statement
and this statement wasn’t denied by then or reps so i tend to think it is solid news. Bc if not they would do smth about it. They wont comment about break up the same as they never confirmed they are together.
Fans see and expects too much and this is sad bc usually fans support actors and in this case they ruining careers and life

She’s too young to be married with kids. She should date hotter guys and she has a great movie career ahead of her. She needs some Passion Toys for those lonely nights at AthenaToysDotcom

@Sasha:
You hit the nail here! Fans are really hard on them. I understood that you didn’t judge them as a fake couple. As i said i aggre with your previews comment. Till now they seem as a couple that broke up. Nothing new here. but IF there is a massive reunion then that will be weird.
I believe that either way they won’t comment the whole thing – and the don’t have to. Not all people make a personal statement..
But some fans should learn their boudaries. Being sad is one thing. Asking their family the casta and everyone that knows that of this is true is an other. They should take a step back and imagine their selfes in that situition. Would they like their family and friends being harassed so much?

I think this is a PR stunt for tvd ratings. I’m not saying they’re fake couple (i believe they’re actually dating) just that the ‘split’ is to bring more ratings to tvd.. sorry if i didn’t explain that well enough lol.

@quinn:
But if such cruel to their fans thing as break up rumors is a PR stunt made exactly at the day of an episode then it make sense to think that all their relatoinships is fake
If they ok to make such stunt there is no problem for them to be PR couple at all

Call it a Professional Opinion for what its worth….
They are both actors, and apart from appreciating their FANS, they really owe them nothing with regards to commenting on this possible break-up…After all they are not emotionally nor are they personally attached to their Fans…They are people doing their job respectfully…
Nina was smart not to comment on twitter about the alleged break up…
However I think Ian may have acted impulsively with his twitter comment i.e. People change, etc…and later realizing what he said,( I mean it’s not like he could take it back once he put it out there) he then just tweeted normally after the fact…The reason I say that, is because when you tweet a quote such as he did, you open up a whole can of worms and it then becomes opened to “Perceptual Error” and of course you are going to get a lot of interpretations because of it…I would have continued on and not said anything…
With regard to Ian quoting Lillian Hellman, If anyone knew anything about her you would know this ….That not only was she an Author/Screenplay writer but she was also a known Political Activist, i.e. Marxist/Communist Party…she was also linked with many Left wing causes….

RE: Her Quote”People change and forget to tell each other”…(1905 – 1984)…

She described how her relationship with Melby changed over time and how their sexual relationship was briefly renewed in 1950 after a long hiatus: “The relationship obviously at this point was neither one thing nor the other: “it was neither over nor was it not over.” She said that: …”to make it black and white would be the lie it never has been, nor do I think many other relations ever are. I don’t think it is as much a mystery as perhaps it looks. It has been a…completely personal relationship of two people who once past being in love also happen to be very devoted to each other and very respectful of one another, and who I think in any other time besides our own would not be open to question of the complete innocence of and the complete morality, if I may say so, of people who were once in love and who have come out with respect and devotion to one another”….
Now lets all get on with our day and enjoy TVD :)

It is funny that Ian fans are blaming Nina for wanting to focus on career but have nothing to say about Ian who also preferred ISF over his relationship. Nina likes attention. Fine but what about Ian? The guy is doing conventions crazy and for what exactly. For money and publicity. He is a celebrity and uses it for his own causes. Nina is an aspiring actress and sure she has the right to do anything to further her career. Why blame the woman only? Even more sad when women themselves fault the woman in a relationship than the man. Case of internalised misogyny. You all women need to take a long hard look at yourself.

No one blames nina here. Read carefully
ppl here is talking about the fans who put to much pressure on actors and three pissibilities
either the break up is stunt then their whole relationship is PR either the break up is for real and fans are delusional either break up rumors is the only way to get obsessed fans off their backs

seriously? @ 05/13/2013 at 2:59 pm

@Sana:
Noone is blaming Nina. Read carefully what was said. If someone blames one or the other that is just sad. Why? Cause from our same bubble we don’t know anything.
Nina is a beautiful young girl, talented and very driven. Ok she hangs around with her girfriends.. Why shouldn’t she?
Ian is working very much for cons and ISF, he seems such a sweet guy.
Both of them are unique in their own way. If they desiced to break up, so what? What does it change to oure lifes? Ok a sweet couple break up – too bad..But it’s not the end f the world. Fans are acting like someone died – God forbide.
The only thing that is said here is that we should respect their private lifes. The media has made their relationship a circus, they don’t need obsessed fans on their backs.

@mel: Ian never called Nina his girlfriend! Seriously guys get your facts straight!

If you really believe Nina is the right woman/Girl for Ian… I can only laugh at you because lets face it…she is not good enough for him. She is just a little bitchy Girl with no Brain!

@seriously?:
I am talking about Ian fangirls here who are blaming Nina for the split calling her rude and pretentious. Fact is both are celebrities and need attention which is the demand of their work. Celebrities have to put themselves in the limelight. Nothing wrong with that but people better not blame the woman only.

@Sasha: Well I guess that’s possible. You do have a point. Both are way too independent, focused on their work to be called as a couple. They may have spend time together for the reasons you have mentioned. I am not calling them fake either but fans really put too much pressure on them. They never confirmed their relationship in a direct way and now the break up statement is also vague.

@Sana:
I agree with you. Why we have to put the blame on Nina? I am an Ian fan too – but i never ever put the blame on Nina. Why we have to put the blame somewhere at all? Relationships start and finish. So simple. It doesn’t have to be a major thing to cause the break up – and honestly if there is indeed a break up i am not suprised at all. Maybe they are to a point on their life where they want different things – and i am not talking about marriage kids etc. We don’t know what it’s in their head, they do. People should leave it there.

@Sana: agree. I find it absurd that Ian’s fans blaming Nina want to make a career whereas Ian is also an actor and not a cook! among other things Ian is trying to get the role for “50 shades ..”, for what he does? for fun? I don’t think! some Ian’s fans o are ridiculous and should grow up!

I hope they haven’t broken up because I think they are cute together. But if they have, it will not affect my enjoyment of the show. I do think all the “shippers” have gotten a little crazy with send death threats to JP and recently to Phoebe Tonkin because of the Klaus/Caroline thing. But they were in fact a couple. Look for the pictures she posted of them taking one of their cats to the vet. Look for any of the pictures of each of them spending holidays with the other’s families. No matter whether they are or not in a relationship – they are human beings and deserve respect not name calling. You can be Ian’s fan and not call Nina names. If they have broken up, no one but the two of them know the reasons why. A little respect goes a long way.

If they broke up, so be it. It’s their own lives, not ours. Move on people.

Ian and Nina haven’t confirmed the split yet, so I don’t believe they really broke up since they’re meant to be together. Btw if it’s true, I would be the saddest person ever, Nian is my life and they’re asdfghjs together. What about the age difference? age is just a number… NIAN IS ENDGAME.

Ps. Nian will always be the meaning of love.

byeeee

@Emma: HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT? IN YOUR OPINION IS DE FANS’ FAULT??? YOU CRAZY. YOU KNOW WHAT? NINA AND IAN ARE STILL SO IN LOVE, THEY HAVEN’T BREAK UP. SO STOP SAYING BULLSHIT, SINCE DELENA SAVED THE SHOW WITH MOST ENTERESTING LOVE STORY EVER. NOW YOU CAN BURN IN THE HELL. DAMN IT.
