Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder Still Friends With Benefits

Former “Vampire Diaries” GF/BF Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder aren’t 100% broken-up, this according to the issue of Star magazine on 7-Eleven impulse racks everywhere right now.

Turns out it’s also the reason why Nina’s rebound/relationship with Julianne Hough’s brother Derek Hough was so short-lived.

Six weeks into it, he couldn’t deal with how close the two still were; clearly Nina wasn’t ready to move on to another serious relationship just yet.

Nina even reportedly asked her ex, Ian, if it’d be okay for her go on a date with Derek after they were already separated.

After quietly dating for a few weeks, Derek ultimately ended things with Nina because of their long distance apart (he works in LA, she films her CW show in Atlanta), but she had also been spending “a lot of time” with Ian (naturally, they’re in a show together). However it didn’t go unnoticed to Derek that the two stayed close during the split either.
