The Vampire Diaries stars reportedly split last week, and they’ve been leading fairly separate lives since the news broke. Ian’s been in Barcelona and Brussels attending the BloodyNightCon, and Nina’s been spending time with friends and family.
But the former couple came together in New York City for the CW Upfronts, where the network’s fall scheduling would be announced.
According to eyewitnesses at the event, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder walked the red carpet separately. Nina stunned in a blue mini dress by Versace that bared a hint of midriff, while Ian looked sharp in a charcoal suit with subtle plaid details.
Nina and Ian later had to take the stage together at the New York City Center to talk about The Vampire Diaries, but CW Television Network President Mark Pedowitz served as a buffer by standing between the two stars.
Backstage, more photos seem to show Ian and Nina keeping their distance from one another. Ian was snapped in deep conversation with TVD co-star Joseph Morgan, while Nina cozied up to fellow brunette beauty Phoebe Tonkin.
Personal matters withstanding, we’re glad to see these two put up a professional front for the sake of their show — and the fans!
