Hmm... Were Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev and Orlando Bloom just hanging out together at last weekend’s Comic-Con, or were they k-i-s-s-i-n-g at a party?

We already saw a photo of them together, and Us Weekly previously said they were seen hanging out at the Playboy and A&E Bates Motel event, reportedly huddled on the dance floor talking. "Nina has known Orlando for a few years now. She's been out with him in social settings with mutual friends," the source said, last week. "She's always thought he was an attractive man." At the time, Us said they were looking “flirty.”


But now the story has been upgraded a bit. Us Weekly returned on Saturday, August 2 with a report quoting eyewitnesses who saw Nina and the Lord of the Rings star kissing on Friday, July 25 at Zachary Levi's Nerd HQ bash. One “observer” said Nina and Orlando "were making out for 20 minutes” (apparently this person stared the whole time, watch in hand) and insiders added to the magazine that the stars couldn’t take their eyes or hands off each other. Another said “They grinded on the dance floor.”

So before they were just getting cozy, now they’re making out and grinding.

It’s possible the story changed because a lot has happened in the past week — namely Orlando Bloom getting into a fight with Justin Bieber. Now both guys’ camps seem to be going out of their way to make sure everyone knows they are total studs. From a cynical perspective, the hook-up angle is better PR, for everyone involved.

Anyway, another unnamed source close to Nina just said, "She's single and having fun!" But if any of this is even close to true — and you should always be wary of these people without names — it might be a bit awkward, since Nina celebrated Orlando’s birthday with him and his then-wife Miranda Kerr last year. She seems to be friends with both of them, so ... is that weird? No? 

They’re not a bad-looking couple, but do you believe that Nina and Orlando were making out (for 20 minutes, no less) at Comic-Con, or are these eyewitnesses just get a bit fanciful?
