Nina Dobrev and Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder had a rough breakup and while a lot of the drama unraveled on social networks, things are just as bad behind the scenes of the show.
Ian has a new girlfriend, Nikki Reed, who starred in the Twilight movies, and the two seem to always be together, especially on the Vampire Diaries set.
Ian’s new relationship is getting to Nina, and there are rumors that she may be quitting the show to get away from Ian and all of the drama he seems to bring to her life.
A source close to Nina told the IB Times that there is more than one reason for Nina to consider quitting the show.
“For one, she simply doesn’t want to deal with her ex-boyfriend anymore, especially not when he keeps flaunting his new relationship in her face.
“And for another, she actually has a shot at developing a legit movie career, something that Ian already tried and failed,” the source said.
Nina isn’t the only one who has had enough of Ian and Nikki’s relationship, many of Ian’s fans are not happy about it either.

They have expressed their distaste for Niki on both hers and Ian’s social networks pages. The comments and opinions must have been getting to Ian, because he finally posted a response to them on Instagram.
“You HATE NIKKI REED? Really Do you know her? Hmmmm, I’m not sure that you do,” Somerhalder wrote. “Look on her Instagram feed or twitter and all you will see is a compassionate and beautiful human being.”
“Do you care about me? Ask yourself that question. What’s the answer? Is it yes?” he asked. “If if is –then please be happy for me. Stop this nonsense — you’re spreading horrible energy into the world. Do some research on the person you say sucks or you HATE. You’ll find that she’s a magical person doing great things in the world.”
“I’m sickened and saddened by the fans’ response to all this,” he continued. “If we all thought a little or [learned] a little about people before we spoke about them, the world wouldn’t be so upside down and in the worst place in history. If you hate Nikki then you must hate me… That’s sad. Have an amazing day!”
He later removed the post.
Other rumors suggest that Ian himself may be leaving the show after the end of this season.
Do you think Nina will really leave the show over ex-boyfriend drama?
