  • Amy

    She’s bearding for him like Cheryl Cole was??? LOL

  • Vikki

  • Ty

    She downgraded so badly. How can you go from Ian to freaking Derek. Is she that dumb! Derek is a cocky asshole and i cant stand him. IAN ALL THE WAY BABY!

  • go go

  • Brazilian girl

  • selena cyrus

    Die Antwoord
    said..their daughter

  • Daniel

    i never heard of him before. i barely know him. and i don’t care about who she’s date. because i will always choose IAN.

  • Zella

    Nina and Derek young , beautiful, talented and very sexy . Very great couple !

  • Kasia

    @Layla: LOL I was thinking the same thing (except for the baby part ;-)

  • lalu

    For someone who was in a serious 3 year relationship she found a new love quite soon. It doesnt come as a surprise though…her behaviour sadly has changed a lot over the last few months. Now she just ist like any other young hollywood-wannabe

  • O.G. Smith

    I smell a crossover and mutual career moves. Derek would make a great guest star vampire on the Diaries and Nina is just working it for a spot on DTWS. Both would be mutually beneficial!! I say go for it.

  • West

    Cute couple !!!!!!

  • loveisall

    i knew something was coming when she was starting to hang out with julianne hough and this kind of people. nina ‘s attitude changed on social media A LOT. she was so private… now she is becoming like julianne. always about publicity. never mind who is dating now, it’s just all about be in a public eye no matter what. and this is so bad and it’s coming from someone, like me, that used to be her biggest fan. i can barely recognize her anymore. who is nina???

  • Megan

    He’s cute. I think he fell first for her.

  • lalu

    @loveisall: THIS!

  • Anna

    I knew it! I had a hunch this was happening.

  • Anna

    I agree with you @loveisall. She turned a lot after splitting with Ian, now it seems she seeks a lot of attention in the media.

  • jennifer

    come on! you dated ian and now him? you made a mistake leaving ian

  • River

    I knew this announcement was coming… it has been so obvious all summer that Nina and Derek were attracted to each other and their trip to Lollaplooza together made it even more obvious. They are a cute couple and I wish them the best!

  • Leokas

    They are just bearding each other. Nina and Julianne are masters at that.

  • truth

    He must feel sorry for her because Nina seems a bit rude.

  • elle

    why do people constantly always assume someones gay just because hes good looking and can dance?? its seriously so rude, dont stereotype people.
    I dont think theyre dating, but I bets she’s into him after all of the time theyve been spending together with julianne

  • Anna

    Great couple !!!

  • elle

    and why are people saying he’s somehow a bad choice? He just won an EMMY for god sake!

  • http://yes ASIANS CAN READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!

    Asians can hear, and see what you’re visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by completely expressionless faces 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.
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don’t want ANYONE to know they can read minds!!! They are trying as hard as they can to hide it!
    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, it works if you try enough!!!

  • Kasia

    @elle: I’m not trying to be rude, I like Derek. It doesn’t matter to me whether he is or isn’t gay, I just thought he was, so I was confused when I saw this headline. No insult intended.

  • loveisall

    sorry but who cares if he won an emmy or an oscar. the problem is not that. nina is not the same girl. that’s the problem. a girl that changes so much in a less time , makes me think that she was hiding the all time her real personality. her interaction on twitter with derek is embarassing . she is acting like she desperately wants that someone will write a story about them. she is not protecting this relationship at all. she was going with julianne and their group of people on a beach in miami where is full of paps just to have some photos online. nina didn’t do something like that before. never. and i have a feeling it’s going to be worst now. ian is not the problem either. nina is. and right now she seems julianne hough ‘s soul sister. it’s going to end bad for her.

  • Anna

    I have nothing against Ian, but that couple was just wrong. No one seems to even point out the fact that he was 10 years older than her. But why should anyone care who she dates? It’s her life, not yours.

  • Alia

    If its true, I hate it. i don’t understand how quickly her love for Ian just switched off and she fell for Derek.

  • whatever

    Derek is …… Strange

  • Amy


    I don’t think Nina is gay; I think she’s a famewhore. She’s hanging out with Julianne all the time who can’t sing or act.

  • David

    @elle: We don’t always assume that just because he is good looking and can dance that he’s gay. I think he’s gay because he gives good gay face and mannerisms. And it doesn’t hurt that he likes to dance and choreograph. How many of your straight boyfriends were good dancers and into makeup and nice clothes??

  • tick

    Who cares… Derek will dump her when he finds someone better just like Ian did. Nina is so average looking. I know a dozen girls where I live who look like her. I don’t know how she got that part on VD. Elena was supposed to be blonde just like the author LJ Smith. She was supposed to look like a goddess. And Nina will date anyone to get her green card.

  • Olivia

    Ugh. ARE YOU REALLY THAT GULLIBLE? I refuse to believe that Nina is dating Derek. Hello?! It’s US WEEKLY – the one who post crap gossip EVERY FREAKY DAY!

    I really believe this is a PR work! Who ever is doing this for Nina or Derek needs to get a life? Ugh. It’s not working at all! NONE!

  • Tomas

    I’m happy !! Nina and Derek it’s wonderful !!

  • Evie

    Nina Dobrev=brainwashed by the Houghs

  • Shane

    Her relationship with Ian wasn’t meant to be. He is way out of her league. Let her be happy with Derek. They are a better match.

  • dree

    DWTS is on right now, so this match/bearding is good for the show. Vampire Diaries should be starting its new season soon, so ditto for that. And yes, the Houghs are into bearding/using beards. But I don’t think that Derek is gay because he dances well or is good looking and well-groomed-that’s ridiculous! I think he’s gay because I have never, ever seen any pix of him with a woman that are at all convincing. And don’t tell me that’s because he’ s private-after all these years of fame, you’d think we’d see at least ONE picture or something that makes him look straight.

  • Polly

    I like this couple !

  • http://jared godlike

    Gay Hough family famevvhores 😄😤👎

  • Amber

    This relationship is going to be a mess. She lives on the east coast 10 months out of the year and he’s on the west coast. Julianne Is going to be caught in the middle when they get into their first fight. Yikes!

  • http://- Kate

    Honestly, I thought he was gay. Well, if the news is true then yay for them!

  • Madddie

    LOL what a trade down, seriously. Is Nina blind????

    But whatever ian deserves better anyway.

  • xyz


  • Jessie

    Nina has changed into a party girl, only seeking attention. So I guess Derek fits that. I have lost my respect for Nina long time ago due to her lack of respect for her fans….as well as Ian. She has flaunted this relationship on twitter to the point of annoyance. I give this a month

    Always thought Derek was gay though.

  • Jen

    Ian probably has Nina muted on twitter lol so no biggie.

  • Júh

    Now probably has Nina and Derek perfect couple faggot and lesbian lol so no biggie. ridiculous!
    Nina have lost my respect long time ago due to her lack of respect for her fans twitter….
