TV’s sexiest onscreen couple is rumored to be steaming it up in real life once again.
Vampire Diaries fans faced their worst fears during the Season 5 finale last week when Damon met his demise, but this week, there’s a glimmer of hope for all of those still yearning to lay their eyes upon the ultimate match made in vampire heaven: Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev might be at it again in real life.
Reports from all over the internet are claiming that Somerhalder and Dobrev have rekindled their romance, but are just keeping it on the DL to avoid any public probing. The two originally started dating back in 2011 and broke up exactly one year ago. Maybe filming Damon’s heartbreaking death scene made the two ponder the real meaning of life? Some fans are theorizing that Somerhalder asked to be written off the show so he could continue his non-working relationship with Dobrev, and the uber-gorgeous couple is even rumored to be planning a romantic European vacation together this summer.
Dobrev certainly hasn’t been twiddling her thumbs since the two called it quits last May. She reportedly had a six-week fling with Dancing with the Stars star, Derek Hough, last summer and was spotted sharing “three sensual kisses on the lips” with Liam Hemsworth in February, according to Celebuzz. Apparently the two were getting cozy while hanging out with friends in an Atlanta bar, and Hemsworth and Dobrev seemed to be more than just pals. “They were having a great time,” a witness named Jahti Anderson said. “They were definitely acting couple-y,” she added.
We’re hoping the rumors are reality and the new low-profile relationship strategy is going to be the key to a successful union for the Dobrev/Somerhalder duo.
