ian somerhalder nina dobrev breakup tweet Ian Somerhalder tweets following Nina Dobrev breakup: 'People change'

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder have parted ways, and now we have some clue as to why. Though “The Vampire Diaries” stars dated for three years, Somerhalder seems to be implying that he and Dobrev drifted apart.

“A THOUGHT FOR TODAY: People change and forget to tell each other. -Lillian Hellman, playwright (1905-1984),” Somerhalder tweeted shortly after news of the breakup first was announced. After that, he went back to Twitter business as usual.

For her part, Dobrev didn’t tweet on the day the split was revealed or at any point since. Neither “Vampire Diaries” star has made an official statement about the breakup.

An insider tells Zap2it that the split won’t affect any storylines on “The Vampire Diaries” next season. Another source tells Us Weekly that Dobrev and Somerhalder are “consummate professionals” and “will continue to work together and remain best friends, which is where the relationship started.”
