Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder: CW Upfronts After Breakup

The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder arrive in style to The CW Network’s New York 2013 Upfront Presentation held at The London Hotel on Thursday (May 16) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actress and 34-year-old actor, who dated for three years, recently broke up. The two presented the show on stage together at the event.

“NY upfronts for Vampire Diaries #5. 5 times a charm right…?” Ian tweeted that day.

The season finale to The Vampire Diaries airs tonight – on the red carpet, frequent guest star Arielle Kebbel told JustJared.com, “The season finale is tonight and I think if you’re a Lexi fan, you’re going to love it.”

FYI: Nina is wearing a Versace dress, Cuyana studs and Rupert Sanderson heels. Ian is wearing Simon Spurr.

    @love: How about Candice and Kat? They attend conventions though. And besides, Nina is the main protagonist.

  • Riot!

    @love: Being weak is not an excuse. Conventions are made to interact with fans and so on.

  • Grey

    @love:
    I guess Candice and torrey are somekind of superwoman then!
    Nina can’t hold the audience, she is too boring, snobish, stuck up and self observed. To many fans after meeting her was in awe how much of diva she is and how she acts around the cast as she is better than them
    She acts nicely only when she wants smth from fans as right now she wants to look good so she is nice
    I always doubted that Ian would date her it was always like she is in relationships for fame bc everything was only from he side and Ian just stands near bc he has to

  • 12345

    I don’t care either way but calm down nian fans they r still together n happy n Ian is living with Nina

  • Riot!

    @Grey: Wow! Where did you get all of these? Your statement answered all my questions on why NIna barely attends TVD conventions. So, it’s all true then.

  • michelle

    really I’ve read a lot of fans who said after meeting Nina is very sweet and kind

  • Grey

    @Riot!:
    tumbler posts with pics from those who attend cons with her and that kind of stories is much more than good ones
    Ppl like her bc they though she is with ian ans Ian wouldn’t choose a bad girl but as soon ppl saw them near each other with out creepy squeee fans around and they didn’t pretend all wrote that there is cold wibe between them, that she is putting fits and Ian just ignores her
    her attitude towards fans when she got award and didn’t need fans for a while was pretty bad as she is some kind of goddess and fans are just worms
    I am glad that ian finally free from pretending to be her cover so fans would like her

  • michelle

    you fans of Ian are bad, say bad things and should grow up! if you like Ian followed him and let go ho do not like .. shame

  • Grey

    @tihondar:
    they don’t have ASK account!!

  • tihondar

    They both definitely don’t look happy;( I think as mature people they should have had a picture together.Btw on Ian’s ASK account I came across a conversation between them two days ago.She wrote to him:”Minister Smolderhalder;)”.And he answered back;”‘I miss you:)’.But in a few minutres he deleted it,probably he didn’t want to show weakness.I wish them both all the best,no matter what.

  • tihondar

    @Grey:
    Are you sure?I thought they both have.May be I am wrong and these accounts are fake,lol:)))

  • Grey

    @tihondar:
    Dunno about Nina but ian more than once had confirmed that he has only twitter,facebook page and instragram and he tweets vertified accounts from time to time so fans wouldn’t trust fake pics and posts
    so no he doesn’t have ASK
    and more…he is 34 years old and aware that fans are obsessing would a mature man put smth personal so everyone can see it? Doubt that

  • tihondar

    @Grey:

    Yes,you are probably.I guess I want to believe that they still care of each other.Is Nina such a bad person anyway?Why do people write such things about her?

  • lorette

    Nina is amazing!

  • love

    Ian said that Nina is very tired during the filming of the series. She has a new role in the film. Everyone needs a rest.

  • Bella

    Ian’s smile makes me melt *-* and btw, who cares about Nina? When tvd is over noone will remember her!

  • Vera

    @Grey:
    Yes Ian has only tweeter, facebook ( i believe an other person manages his facebook) and instagram. There are a lot of fake acounts for him everywhere, Especially in Istragram. And the funny thing us that the man has said many times which are the real ones but people just don’t listen.
    I don’t think that Nina is so bad. Not her fan at all – big Ian fan here. But i don’t think she can be so bad.
    I believe that the realationship was real. I don;t think that either of then would lose it’s time to fake one but I really can’t understand why people have gone mad because they broke up. So what? People breake up all the time…People should respect their desicions.
    As for Ian he is hot! So the hater with the classic comment (you know who you are) shoule take a step from here. He is much more than you. He works too much for his own good. Does all the cons to please the fans (Nina could do some to – it wouldn’t hurt) and does a lot for the envoroment and animals. So he has my respect for that.

  • Vera

    Oh and Jared? Two articles would have been nice. I get you wanna make numbers and sell their break up but enough is enough. You write that they are not an item anymore – then don’t treat them like one. Thank you.

  • Warren

    Nina is beautiful and will have no problem finding a younger boyfriend.

  • Bella

    @Vera: I agree. Ian is awesome *-*

  • Vera

    @love:
    I get that she need a rest – i am for it but she could do one or two cons. What she is is thanks to the fans. She in not the only one filming vampire diaries. All the other are tired too but they do cons. I have nothing against Nina but i use you argument (Nina being tired) so that you can see that she may be i little wrong here. Anyway lets just agree to disagree.

  • Vera

    @Bella: Ian is such a smart and wonderful person. Has great ideas. I really enjoy his interviews, especially the non TVD ones where he shares his vision and you can understand how intelligent he is!

  • tihondar

    http://ask.fm/IanJSomerhalderOfficial

    May be this is fake,but whoever may take a glimpse:)

  • Grey

    @Vera:
    well i wont start the story i know a man whos dog had seen..ok…but let me tell you this a person who worked for Nina for 3 years until miss Diva switched the agency was crying and on the verge of break down every time after working with her in person
    so yeah i have personal dislike for Nina
    Fans wont listen to ian or Nina they see only what they want to see
    ian is tweeting that he is alone in cafe in NYC and is in blue mood but Nina at the same time tweeting she hangs out with gf and having fun! fans still think they are not over?As i said god forbid from fans like these

  • Shelley

    @Riot!:

    She’s too immature for him. He needs a woman not a girl.

  • tihondar

    @Grey:

    Yes,she’s tweeting about eating some stuff.I feel so sorry for Ian sitting alone:((((((((Life is so unfair sometimes.I wish he finds true love soon!!!

  • Shelley

    @Leah:

    It’s not a combover. They cut his hair too damn short. Didn’t you notice it in episode 4×19? It was cut super short for some reason.

  • Grey

    @tihondar:
    i checked ask account
    come on does it sound as a man who is 34 years old
    have u read his twitter? have u hear him in interviews
    beside copy of tweets that ask account looks like stunt
    sorry
    i might be wrong but if he would have one he would said about it

  • Vera

    @Grey:
    Look i think they were over a long time ago. And to tell you the truth i really couldn’t understand why they begin with. Nothing personal with Nina (i have heard a lot of stories too but i chose not to give them much thought) but they are seem complitely different.
    What angers me the most is that fans have a talent of twisting their words. Especially Ians. He talks about Elena, fans go all Nian. Nina has a ring on her finger, fans go ”omg they are engaged”, she has worn his necklase sometimes ‘omg the nian necklace”. Give as a break. Where was she when he was getting his Genesis award? Where was she when he was cleaning the beach? Where was she was he was doing the RYOT panel? And i remember that she anounced herself as part of the Ryot team. Since then she has tweeted about ryot once.
    But noooo fans don’t see all that. They see what they want to see. Like today. The whole tweeter exploded because Ian and Nina were together on stage.. Seriously people? They were doing their job.
    After the whole jop think what did the couple do? Nina left before Ian – the boyfriend who fans claim that she is soooo in love with- she didn;t even wait for him and he went to the hotel gor his bags and straight to the aeroport for Paris. If Nina was his girl indeed she could have kept him company. The after party could wait.
    But fans choose to ignore all that and believe their own little fairytale.
    If they were real fans they should respect the break up decision, wished them luck and admire them seperately. As you said god forbid from fans like these.

  • lorette

    Ian is poor why he wrote alone? are you kidding me? the day when the news came out he has sent pictures while he enjoyed in Bruxeles with Paul. he is allowed and her no? maybe they’re really hurt both or are fine both.. read certain things is crazy, how old are you? they are two normal people that break up, stop

  • Vera

    @tihondar: I checked the acount, It’s fake. And Ian is 34 years old. Actions like the ones you described belong to a 15 year old not a grown up man who has proved himself that he can deal with difficult situations like a gentleman and not a boy.

  • Shelley

    @Grey:

    I actually could see her as a diva. Something about that statement she made about her career struck me as self centered and not just because she wants to focus on it. It was something about the way it was said. Maybe she used him just to get some connections since he’s been around longer. Some actresses do that.

  • Bella

    I hate Nina!

  • Vera

    @Shelley:
    Leave them. The haven’t got something actual bad to write about Ian so they go on with the same poem. Hats, smirk, gay, loses hair, clothes etc. The thing is they only make fool of themselves. They say that you have succeded when you start to have haters.
    And the funny thing is that those qualities they write as insults aren’t even one! Because whan a guy loses hair, wairs hats or likes men is suddenly a bad person?
    Ian likes hats. Always did. If people followed for about ten years they would know that. Likes womes- like really likes women. Doesn’t lose his har – bad haircut aren’t hair loss as for his smirk…we like it. The ones who don’t look elsewhere.

  • Shelley

    @Grey:

    She’s been seen having fun all along while he’s been off working like a dog. The break up doesn’t seem to be bothering her. Perhaps she initiated it thinking she’ll find someone better. Silly rabbit.

  • Pauline

    Nina looks so much different than she used to be ! Looks like she had plastic surgery… And she dosen’t look happy at all…

  • Grey

    @Vera:
    Just don’t shoot me ok. I agree with all that yŗ saying and i acn ad smth myself
    nina didn’t clean the beach with Ian during his ISF event she is near ISF only when the pics are taken, she never supports him. Last few times in NYC they openly avoided each other at all costs beside the work related Upfronts
    and now…you can call me hater but IF suddenly their love will bloom again or Nina will show up in Paris i will agree with all who were sayin it is PR relatioship from the beginning
    what bugged me and was written here before that Ian never adressed her as his gf, he was never exclusive with her in his behavior he acted the same with all girls around, holding hands, hugs, kisses,pecks on the lips it is ian.But no tenderness or adoration as was with his ex. About his ex he talked proudly and never been vague in answers
    with Nina he never confirmed the relationships it is only fans assumptions that he is talking about her when he is talking about relationships in general
    and what wasn’t mentioned by many others. I feel that there was no relationships at all and Nina cornered him not to deny anything. Look ALL i mean ALL pics we got of them together is obe way or another is connected with CW,TVD or promoting family business either her mothers paintings either Ians family pizzeria or BOB. Coachella is organized by ICM agency as soon as Nina is out of there there is no Coachella for them. The fest was just business not romance. and on the pics from there it was nina who is kissing him or touching him, ian just didn’t push her away infront of cameras
    Paris in 2011, Nina got a photoshoot for Vogue ther. I recall some fans psoted a cover later and it was written that shoot was taken in may 2011 but Nian fans almost killed those peeps bc that would ruin whole romance. But there was no romance at all
    then private vacations. hmm ok…but why we never got pics of private vacations from ian. it is always Nina or her friends tweeting pics hinting that Ian is there but no sign of ian in reality only as usual fans assumptions.
    Vet pics. First off all fans did found helluva lot things showing that it is photoshopped pics and guess who posted them? Miss Dobrev
    ian usually tells himself when smth is wrong with his cats but here he just retweeted some of her tweets and refused talk about cat during con beside one comment bc ian don’t want to lie to fans
    So as i said if miss Dobrev will pop up near ian again soon i will call their relationships a PR

  • love

    Ian is a beautiful young successful man. No need to feel sorry for him.
    Unauthorized people may not know who to blame for the rupture of relations

  • lorette

    @love: agree. not all know how to use head, but only write things you don’t know.

  • Shelley

    @Grey:

    Seems like an awful lot of work for a PR stunt.

  • Grey

    @Shelley:
    nope
    they just attend together events as presenters of CW bc they are liked by fans and the love story behind it fans write themselves
    During eye con few years ago ian was walking had in hand with Abigale but no one pictured that and it was like- they are just friends
    In Nina case paps knows it is good money for this pics so the take them sell them and then fans go awwww

  • Vera

    Just don’t shoot me ok. > Sorry if i seems a little angry! I am with some fans not you!! :D I agree all the way with what you wrote here! All of you comments! Sorry again – it’s just the way i speak and write… (insert emoticon with a flower here!! :D)
    Anyway back to our topic…I have to agree with you that it will bug me the most if i see a massive reunion now. And of course i will think that it is for PR reasons. Who wouldn’t actually (wait i know!! the nian fans who leave their fairytale through other peoples lives). And this is something that i totally expect from Nina but not Ian.
    Don’t let me start for the way fans treaded his ex. which saw no respect for him.
    As for vet pics…grrr…concerned parents? How more of a drama queen? A concerned parent would post a pic for starters..

  • Ash

    and Ian fangirls came out again to tear Nina apart. Nina looks perfectly fine, healthy and beautiful whereas Ian looks tired but still charming. I am Nina’s fan first and foremost but I am not going to hate Ian just because he broke up with Nina. They were just not meant for each other. No need to hate them. As for those people who say Nina will never make it to the big screen, well time will tell. Who knows she may surprise you. One thing is for sure that Ian will never make it to the big screen. The guy is already in mid 30′s and really looks old now. He really doesn’t have much of a career ahead. So you guys really need to worry about him, not Nina. Peace out!

  • rafa

    @12345: how do you know?

  • danny

    how much you like judge?

  • Grey

    @Vera:
    yeah i have problems with expressing myself in letters too.
    As i said if Nina will pop up in Paris it will be right after finale and break up rumors started exact a week before finale before epic epi!!
    Yesterday before they removed an article with old pics (well if info is false they do remove news, but the news about break up still on btw) few peeps were talking here and main point was that a lot of ppl in TVD fandom and in general have issues with Nian fans not with Ian or Nina
    nian fans still are so sure that even if smth is off as soon as Nian will get back on set they will reunite
    all these years Nian was step by step what was written by fans, someone even called it Nian fans wish list. This year fans were step by step prepared to break up when their wish list wasn’t fulfilled.
    So if suddenly Nian will reunite exactly the way as fans expecting them…so well guys you don’t have to be Sherlok to see PR behind it
    And all Nian comes either from fans either Nina drama queen and attention seeker plays along
    during the years here in comments were a lot of stories from con about her true colors but those ppl were called haters
    and Nian fans are not innocent, as i recall yesterday when ianš ex was brought up someone write that fans harrased her, threatened her, trashed her car, demanded her to leave ian so nina can step in and other horrible things
    they blame her for throwing a finger. Well if someone would shout to me that i am third wheel intruding star crossed lovers i would throw a finger too

  • Missy

    Nina and Ian obviously didn’t love each other enough. You can still have a good time with friends and have a career with a loving partner by your side. He’ll find someone else. No problems there.

  • Kandy

    For those saying Ian doesn’t have much of a career left. He is an extremely intelligent man who has set himself up nicely with businesses and other interests outside of showbiz. The Hollywood scene doesn’t last forever guys. Who’s Julia Roberts now? Yeah playing someone’s mom!

  • Vera

    @Grey:
    Well not only a finger but a punch too. The girl for me had so much patiance with those fans. (and i am not sure if the finger was for the fans or the paps but anyway doesn’t matter).
    Right now if i judje from their twitters Ian is alone at a coffee shop – he left the hotels with bags to get the plane , and Nina is with her friends having fun. Nothing wrong with this picture, The only reason i write it is that right now Ian and Nina make it perfectly clear that they have broken up. But fans choose not to believe, And if they do they thiink that is a break not a break up. I really pity for both of them. They can’t evem break up with fans on their back assuming things.
    i didn’t believe that this whole past relationship was a pr stunt but yes is a wonderful reunion is made then yes..sorry…but so PR.
    Last but not least i believe that fans made this people their own mappets. Writing stories, inventing things etc. No respect for them..

  • Vera

    @Kandy: and i might add that he chose a sector with much future. Energy. The guy knows what he is doing..
