Vampire Diaries fans are still mourning the Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder break up, but it looks like they aren’t the only ones getting emotional over the split.
Nina, 24, reportedly teared up during a conversation with her ex Ian, 34, at the CW Upfronts on May 16. “She looked so sad,” a source told Us Weekly.
The former couple presented together at the network's 2013 Upfronts, and while everything looked relatively drama-free, Us reports Nina and Ian “avoided eye contact” behind the scenes.
Earlier this month, multiple sources confirmed Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev split officially. While some sources blamed their 10-year age difference, others hinted Ian was ready to settle down but Nina was not ready for that kind of commitment.
Still, the two reportedly remain friends and will have no trouble working alongside one another while filming The Vampire Diaries Season 5. After all, now that Damon and Elena are in a full-fledged relationship, the two will most likely be spending a lot of screentime together. Then again, with Elena off at college, perhaps the distance is a good thing.
