We Finally Know Why Nina Dobrev And Ian Somerhalder Really Split
Feb 24 2020
Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder had great chemistry as Elena and Damon on The Vampire Diaries - and it wasn't exactly shocking when the pair started dating in 2011. But not all celeb couples are built to last, and the romance was off, by 2013. Here's why.
While some couples feel age isn't a factor when it comes to love, a difference in life experience could make it difficult to stay together long-term. Although these two looked as though they were close in age, in actuality, Dobrev was 24 and Somerhalder was 34 when their three-year relationship came to an end. It's likely the two were at very different places in their lives due to their ages.
This was more than apparent based on the speed at which Somerhalder moved on. After his 2013 split with from Dobrev, he started dating actress Nikki Reed. The two confirmed their relationship in 2014, and became engaged after just six months of dating. The couple then tied the knot in 2015, two years before welcoming their daughter.
Inevitably, Dobrev was asked to comment about seeing her ex happily married to someone else. But she told E! News,
"They look happy and I am happy […] so I don't see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it's not with us."
