Hollywood celebrity couples are strongly followed by millions in various countries especially when their love stories exemplify relationship goals that are no less thrilling and loving. When the famous tv series “The Vampire Diaries” turned the romance of its big stars Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) and Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) into reality, the fans went crazily happy.
But when the couple headed to splitsville after three long years of exclusive dating, many hearts were broken and dismayed.
According to Life & Style, the very reason for their split is their different views on marriage. While Ian is more than ready to settle down, Nina is focused on her career.
"He was starting to talk marriage and she is just getting started on her career," a source close to the actress revealed.
In an interview with E News, Dobrev broke her silence on rumors that chased her and former beau Somerhalder after their break up.
"I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship," Nina admitted.
"I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now," the lovely actress elaborated.
The star of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” also shared her thoughts on the wedding of Ian and Nikki Reed.
"When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it's not with us. But of course, we're on a teen drama show, everyone's going to look for drama. If there's no drama, there's nothing to write about. I just ignore it."
Just when everyone thought that all is well, things didn’t get better. Dobrev, Somerhalder, and Reed were caught in a series of controversial rumors. The “Twilight” actress was speculated to be extremely jealous of the impending return of Nina in the final season of the supernatural drama and that a divorce is likely to happen between her and Ian.
In addition, former sweethearts Nina and Ian were reported to have rejected the idea of working together in “The Vampire Diaries” season 8. Ian was noted to have bluntly opposed Nina’s return in the popular. While Nina never commented on the issue, she was presumed to snub the offer of reprising her role.
It looks like a bad blood between the ex-pair is getting more intense. Despite their ugly separation, their supporters are not losing their hopes that they will reunite for the sake of “TVD’s” conclusion.
At this writing, a reconciliation between Nina and Ian seems impossible. Eventually, time will heal the wounds and they will be able to let go the pains and sad memories and focus on the best days that await them. Hopefully, their once beautiful romance will transform in a civil friendship at least. Who knows.
