    Laker games? Seriously? Like you did with your ex girlfriend?

  • wizkhaleesi

    He probably still likes the lakers and maybe she does too….? Sporting events are pretty typical dates to go on if you’re a fan

  • forrest gump

    please arrest them: THIS ISN’T ALLOWED IN AMERICA!!

  • theonlyandoneme

    Right…. Last time he went to a Lakers game, he was with his ex girlfriend. Why so interested on games now? Oh, wait.. There were cameras there. They do anything to promote their shit.

  • Dbleak00 .

    exactly lol i am sorry no shade beautiful people… however this is a carbon copy of his previous relationship.. and the statement released when her and her hubby split is that they grew apart due to time spent apart.. but she moved to ATL quick fast in a hurry i give it 3 years..

  • Guest

    Ian and Nikki are adorable together!

  • Ian Fan

    HOTTEST COUPLE EVER. LOVE THEM <3

  • Sher

    They are so cute.

  • Ian Fan

    OMG get your salty nian ass out of here. Nian is over and you know what? They probably weren’t as special as you think. And btw Ian can do whatever he wants. Nian wasn’t even together when they went to the Game. And wasn’t nina taking Jules ther e last year right after the break up? I think yes…..! NOTHING you do or say will bring Nian back. So you night as well STOP trying.

  • theonlyandoneme

    You’re wrong dear friend. Nina took Jules to a game right after Jules broke up, not Nina. And what makes Nikki and Ian any better than Nian? The IG posts? The intense PDA? Please, you know what that screams to me? That they are thirsty for attention! ”Hey, look at us! We’re happy, we couldn’t be happier if we tried, we’re having the time of our lives!”…. I’m sorry, if they were for real, they wouldn’t play such ridiculous act in front of cameras. And I can give my opinion wherever I want. It’s a free world, if you’re bothered by my opinion, I’m truly sorry.

  • theonlyandoneme

    I give it 1 year or less… She moved to ATL to make a movie, but I’m pretty sure she had other interests as well… Nothing will convince me otherwise that she had laid eyes on Ian while she’s still married to her ex.

  • peta

    So let me get this straight. It’s wrong to eat animals, but it’s okay to wear them? Are these two serious? They’re animal activists, are they? I’m sure. Spare me the next twitter tirade you two hypocrites

  • Tamara

    Isn’t this the 3rd or 4th article JJ has posted about these two at the Lakers game since last night? It must suck to realize that people are more interested in your private life, where you’re photographed, and the things you post on social media rather than your acting career. What a shame.

  • Mike1288

    They are a good looking couple. It just surprises me Ian is so upfront and public about this relationship. He was not public at all with the last one. It is not really like him to be so muh in the public eye.

  • It’s ok to seek attention

    I think Nina was the one who truly valued her privacy. She rarely goes to events (Or even LA for that matter) and is almost never papped. Nikki goes to events constantly and is photographed all the time, so I think Ian is adjusting accordingly. Some celebrities thrive on the constant attention, while others prefer to keep the spotlight solely on their career choices. It seems like Nikki just wants the attention no matter what the reason, and Ian’s fans will deny it until they’re blue in the face because they love him. And I get that. But come on guys, they’re front row at a Laker’s game touching all over each other. Give me a break

  • Guest

    Ian was very openly public with his romantic relationship with Meghan Auld. That is based on his interviews, the paparazzi, the events and functions they attended together, as well as personal pictures that were shared. Of course at the time he was dating Meghan he did not have a twitter or Instagram account so things have changed a lot since then. Obviously Ian is very happy and very much in love with Nikki and they both want to share their happiness with their fans. As for Ian’s previous relationship, I think being co-workers on the same show had a lot to do with Ian being stifled and maybe they were both a bit uncomfortable under the scrutiny of being in the public eye.

  • Guest

    This article is NOT about Nina, who is no longer relevant in Ian’s personal life. This article is about Ian and Nikki. I’m pretty sure going to a Lakers game in not exclusive to a previous relationship. Thinking that is just too damn silly…

  • Guest

    “According to property records, Paul McDonald signed over any ownership he had in the prime piece of real estate in July 2013, right around the time Nikki and Paul had already been “living separately,” according to Nikki’s rep’s statement about their split. The legal separation and the divorce was amicable, they have remained friends and continued to work on their album together. Nikki’s rep issued a statement regarding the legal separation and intent to divorce in March 2014 and Nikki filed the divorce papers in May 2014. I hardly call that “rushed”. Nikki was in Atlanta to film the movie, “Sunday Horse”, which began production in Atlanta the first of May. Ian was in Europe attending the TVD conventions until mid June. Once Ian returned to Atlanta, he and Nikki connected. There is and was no drama, nothing illegal, and nothing unscrupulous except in the minds of a few.

  • http://miisnothing.tumblr.com Irene

    I don’t care who Ian dates or not, if he’s happy then I’m happy for him, but I totally agree with this. It took him so long to PDA with Nina or even post a picture of them together (as a couple, not when they were just co-workers), and when they started dating they were very private about it, but now with Nikki he started posting things when they weren’t even “oficially” dating and posts almost anything. Again, I admire him a lot and if he’s happy with her I’m happy for him and glad that she makes him happy, but it all looks weird.

    BTW, I’m not a so called “Nian”, I don’t like Nina out of her acting career or anything, and I don’t care who they’re dating, I’m just expressing an opinion.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Sure, if Nina wasn’t relevant anymore, why Ian used the same shirt he used on the same date he had with Nina years ago? I bet even the seats were the same. If Ian doesn’t want the fandom to make comparisons, stop doing this thing. He looks like a teenager, who still hasn’t moved on his former gf.

  • theonlyandoneme

    To be honest, I’m losing all the admiration and respect I had for him. That’s not how a man should behave, posting photos of that Who every week at his ig? I’m his fan, not hers… And it’s not because I like him, I’m obligated to like her as well. I admired Ian because he was humble, and donw to Earth. Now, all it seems it’s like he’s putting on a show to the paps. I’m very disappointed at him, and considering unfollowing him once more.

  • KT

    Oh really? So you think that Ian remembers what he wore FOUR YEARS AGO? Seriously? I’ve seen the guy wear the same clothes several times. A lot of celebrities go to Laker games, they all sit in the same seats and they are all photographed.
    If Ian wanted Nina back, don’t you think he would have tried something? They moved on, so should every “Nian” supporter.
    What is the man supposed to do? Stay single and cry for ND so every “shipper” is happy?

  • guest

    great, maybe then You don’t have to stalk every Article of His and Nikki’s anymore. I am sure Ian will survive with His millions of Fans and the majority of His Fans, that support that wonderful Man, that deserves to be happy with whomever he chooses. and looks very much in love . I am sure you don’t like to go on articles of someone ,you lost respect for, what’s the point. Ian and Nina, where photographed all the time to, when they stepped out of there Atlanta Bubble. I guess it was alright to be photographed at a Game with Nina but not with nikki , the Women He loves. He was never private with megan Auld and talked about her all the time and was very affectionate, because he is a sweet affectionate Man, and there is pictures all over with other Women he went out before the Show..

  • Guest

    Seriously? I doubt Ian gave a second thought to the fact he wore the same type of shirt he wore with Nina in 2010. I have no idea why you would think it is the same shirt from 4 years ago. Ian has stated many times in interviews that if a piece of clothing is comfortable he buys more than one. At some point I hope you can realize and accept the fact that Ian is now in a serious committed relationship with Nikki Reed. Otherwise you are either living in a fantasy world, or you’re just plain silly and don’t really mean what you say. If it bothers you so much that Ian and Nikki are now together, then perhaps it would be best to not follow him, or look up articles about them.

  • guest

    Ian is currently starring on a TV Show and there is tons of articles on that also. there are a lot more post s on all His Social Media accounst about 99% of the Projects He is involved in then anything else. Instagram is there to Post your Pictures and share them with Friends, Family and Fans like every other Person does, celebrities Included

  • guest

    excactly, and has not been for almost 2 Years in which Time She seems to been having a great time , starting immediately after the breakup,, and that’s fine.

  • Tamara

    Funny, you don’t see tons of gossip articles about Jack Nicholson, who is at every Lakers home game, especially ones posted hours apart on the same site and he’s a higher caliber star than Ian and Nikki Reed will ever be. Yes, Ian uses social media to connect with his fans and promote his ISF projects which is great, but the gossip sites don’t talk about the show or his charity work, unless he gives them (JJ) an exclusive. They focus mainly on his past relationship and how he and his ex can’t stand each other, who he’s with, what place he was at, what outfit or hat he was sporting, and so forth. That’s a fact! Ian can post whatever he wants on social media, more power to him as I follow him and like to hear about the things he’s doing. The fact of the matter is, the articles I’m referring to don’t focus on the good he’s doing or his show, they focus on superficial crap that has nothing to do with his career or his charity work. Go count the articles written about him being at one basketball game as compared to the articles about his foundation. It’s pretty sad.

  • lorena

    you’re so stupid, what is the next?” Ian is breathing,” Ian breathing when he was with nina . How can he? Nina stan are so ridiculous & bitter, his crazyness has no limit.

  • lorena

    Hahahaha Nina is private? the best joke ever. She post almost 20 pics in ig about her partys & holidays , but is OK because is nina. She was papped in the middle of the ocean but is Ok is nina. Maybe she’s not so interesting for the medios because her fans are most interested in hatred Ian &Nikki

  • guest

    There is no Articles about Jack Nicholson at Lakers Games anymore because it has been reported over the Years constantly and is old news. Also there is a lot articles that are just about ians projects in Magazines, all over the World, and Where He is on the cover, where He discusses nothing but His projects and ISFF, he never discusses his private life in Them , or is it mentioned ,unlike some others do. Also He has been on a lot of news shows and entertainment shows for the sole purpose of promoting ISF, His Animal sanctuary, and nothing else and He never discusses his private life on there either. Post on His huge FB Page is mostly about the Show and He’s promoting His Projects. Also every other star that was at that Game has been written about to. .Also even in most entertainment articles his Foundation and Work is always mentioned. to, When He did years of living dangerously it was mentioned and written about iin almost every paper around the world.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Duh, there are a lot of pictures from when he was at the Lakers game with Nina. just google it. I think he’s engaged in this PR stunt exactly to get Nina jealous, to rub at her face of how happy he is without her. No, he shouldn’t be forever alone and cry, but act like a man, and not a horny teenager thirsty for attention.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Congratulations, you have convinced me that Ian and Nikki are the most perfect couple ever matched in Heaven. Please! Give me a break… The only plain person here is you, who can’t read between lines. Nikki Reed is a famous attention seeker. Do your research, and Ian hasn’t moved on Nina. That’s why he’s taking Nikki to the same place he took Nina once, and wore the same outfit. I’ve talked to a boy about it, and he told me he would do it to show the girl he was that places they considered only theirs and special aren’t special anymore. I can tell all his pictures are staged, and that he’s still hurt by his break up with Nina. And he’s using Nikki as rebound. And Nikki being the attention seeker she is got into this stunt. Yes, it would be the best to unfollow him and to not see the hypocrisy of fans like you commenting on articles like this one. Maybe someday I’ll be fully untached of him… Until then I still have hope he’ll walk out this PR contract.

  • DD

    There are no articles about Jack at Lakers games because Jack is not a media whore and unless he is working on a project he does not want cameras in his face. It is Ian’s PR people who set up the deals with the various outlets to plaster his pics everywhere.If he did not want his pics out there they wouldn’t be. Don’t be friggin naïve. Sheesh.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Why do you think he posts about his foundation at every IG photo he posts with Nikki… Because he knows the gossip sites will publish his message… Seriously, there are many details that screams of how stunted this relationship is… But people still believes in fairtytales and can’t accept that in Hollywood everything is made up.

  • DD

    But Ian and Nina did their share of PR as well. The only difference is she seems to be a little more private whereas Nikki and Ian seem to court the PR non-stop for whatever reason.

  • Guest

    You talked to a “boy” to get his opinion on an adult relationship. That explains a lot. Hopefully, one day you will move past your obsession over a couple that broke up almost 2 years ago. There is no PR conspiracy. It is very obvious that Ian and Nikki are very much in love and happy together. Ian took Meghan Auld to Sun Valley too. It was never exclusive to his relationship with Nina, nor are the clothes that he wears.
    By the way, JJ does have an article regarding Nina’s quick snow trip with her mother and brother if you care to look her up and make a comment. Nina didn’t spend much time in Whistler with them because she couldn’t wait to get to New Zealand with Riawna. Also, Bradley James Werner just posted a photo from New Zealand that included Nina. Looks like they will be bringing in the New Year together. You do remember who he is right?

  • theonlyandoneme

    Right, he’s her friend… Or according to your crazy conspiracy, Nina is hooking up with him. Stop beign hypocrity. I never said I was obsessed with Nian… Comparing Ian and Nikki, and Ian and Nina, I have to bow down, and recognize Ian was more humble and private with Nina. Ian could be dating with anybody else than Nikki, if he was pulling over a massive PDA, rubbing it to everyone of how happy he is with the new affair, I would be criticizing him as well! When are you going to understand I’m condemning his behaviour, and how low he’s behaving? I can’t help if Nikki is responsible to that… Now, I may ask you. Were you a Nikki fan before Ian got into this stunt with her, or you googled her entired life, saved files about it just like you did with Nina and Ian? Hm? I pity people like you!

  • Guest

    I fully understand that you are condemning Ian’s behavior with Nikki Reed and that you want him to be with someone else, but that is how Ian behaves when he is in love and in a romantic relationship. He wants to share his joy and shout it from the rooftops. His fans are happy for him. I don’t have a problem at all with Nikki Reed. Ian has every intention of marrying Nikki and no matter how many times you complain, judge and put his relationship with her down, it isn’t going to change a thing. Ian and Nina’s relationship ended almost 2 years ago, which means they were not suited for each other and they parted ways. It is very immature to try and compare the relationship Ian had with Nina to the one he now has with Nikki. It is silly to continue bringing Nina’s name up on an articles about Ian and Nikki.

  • theonlyandoneme

    You talk of Ian like you know him in person. Who are you? Are you Nikki, are you someone from the pr team? You talk and talk and still cannot argue with my arguments.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Well, I believe it started as PR but turned something more in the middle of the road, or else their families wouldnt be so close as they are until nowadays.

  • Guest

    Your arguments are baseless allegations meaning unfounded in fact. There is nothing to argue about.

  • theonlyandoneme

    So the media and the sources are reliable? I know what I see, and I have my mind mature enough to judge what I read. Have a nice day!

  • Guest

    Ian is an honest man with integrity and he is reliable in what he shares and what he says. Ian has made it very clear that he is in love with Nikki Reed and that they are together. No one said anything about the media.

  • guest

    LOL, nobody gives a flying hoot about Jack NIcholson at the Lakers Games anymore.. Ian dosen’t have to make Deals to plaster His Pictures, any Picture of Him sells and get lots of Hits, You’re here. He puts up a Picture on his 16.000.000 FB Page and it goes to 100.000 views in less then a half hour. I guess he makes a deal with Himself when a picture on His instagram gets 600.000 likes. I am sure all the Other celebs that were there and had Articles written about it , also just made deals, there not just possible all be there because there like Basketball , enjoy the Game and it is a nice Day out. Just because there celebs don’t mean they can not go out and enjoy Themselves.

  • Me

    You know what? You never had any real admiration for him, you only lived your fantasy romance through his previous relationship. Sorry I’m saying that but if you ignore all the great things Ian has done and is doing for this world every day (no need for a recap, you know them very well) and your only concern is who he dates and were he goes with his dates then I have to say that this is the most shallow reason to admire or to loose your admiration for someone so maybe it’s time to find someone else to “admire” and feel free to not stalk Ian. Thank you!

  • Me

    Does fake/ artificial leather clothes says anything to you? Search it if not, it exists, I swear!

  • theonlyandoneme

    Oh…. The great things he has done? Well, building the animal sanctuary, becoming an Unep embassador, being part of YOLD, winning several envoirment awards, figthing against the Louisiana fracking, being a humble and private person about his private life. Those are the reasons I admired this man. This exposure of his ‘relationship’ with Nikki is ruining the image I had of him as a humble and private person. Its awesome all the other things hes done for the envoirment and animals, but I would never imagined he could be able to pull his ‘love life’ on a show for the media and paps.

  • Me

    Then goodbye! As I said if all the great things he is doing every day for the world comes second to who he dates then it’s time to move on. Pics of celebrities are taken every day or they post them themselves on ig, his image is better than ever, if you must know, to where it matters and that is evident by all the love and support he gets, the only thing his relationship ruined was the fantasies of some “fans” who clearly mistake life for a tv show and have the notion that their favorites’ private lives are for their pleasure.

  • theonlyandoneme

    Glad Iam not of the people who mistake life for a TV show. His inage better than ever? I dont think so. Hes clearly distant from the rest of the TVD cast, and he looks miserable than never.
