Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough have split. The couple ended their three month relationship just two weeks after going public. On Oct. 16, Us Weekly reported that Nina and Derek decided to end things because the long distance romance was too much for them to handle. With Derek working in Los Angeles (on "Dancing with the Stars") and Nina working in Atlanta (on "The Vampire Diaries"), the two couldn't deal with a bi-coastal love affair.
Contrary to popular belief, Nina's ex, Ian Somerhalder, had nothing to do with Nina and Derek's decision to can their romance. While things did get hot and heavy rather quickly -- and this was technically a rebound romance for Nina -- Ian wasn't the cause of their split.
The Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough split is making some fans happy. Believe it or not, many are still hanging on to the possibility that Nina and Ian could rekindle their 3-year romance and Nina really couldn't do that with someone like Derek in the picture. There hasn't been anything to suggest that Ian and Nina are trying to work things out, but NIAN fans are hopeful nonetheless.
If Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder did get back together, fans would undoubtedly be thrilled. The two just seemed perfect for one another and they are so similar in many ways. Do you think they will give their love another go?
Nina Dobrev and Derek Hough were a cute couple but nothing holds a candle to Nina's relationship with Ian. Do you agree?
