Feud? What feud?
For years, multiple tabloids have played up the long-standing “war” between Ian Somerhalder’s wife, Nikki Reed, and ex-girlfriend Nina Dobrev. The 3 Hollywood stars are finally putting an end to this speculation.
“The Vampire Diaries” co-stars, Somerhalder and Dobrev, began dating in 2010 but called it quits in 2013. In 2015, Somerhalder married “Twilight” alum Reed, after dating for approximately 1 year. When Dobrev decided to leave The CW hit series in 2015, many assumed that things had gotten awkward after Somerhalder and Reed’s wedding – which she didn’t attend.
Yesterday (7th February, Tuesday), the married couple met up with the 28-year-old actress for dinner at a restaurant and even posed for a selfie to mark the occasion. “Can’t believe how time flies. Farewell dinner with team Somereed! So good catching up with these goofballs,” Dobrev captioned her photo.
Reed also took to Instagram to document the sweet reunion between the trio, while denouncing the feud rumours with a lengthy message. “For the last few years we thought addressing any baseless rumours with silence was the best way,” she wrote.
The “Sleepy Hollow” actress continued, “I now see that silence was taken as an opportunity to fill in the blanks with even more falsities, and juicier stories, and we, yes WE, believe we have a moral responsibility to young girls to end that narrative, because at the end of all of this, those young girls are the ones who lose. Their passion and endless devotion for a TV show is being taken advantage of, replaced with feelings of anger through divisive techniques, and even worse, their minds are being shaped and moulded as their view of themselves, other girls, and what those dynamics should look like are being formed.”
“So here’s to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships lost and women hating women. Let’s turn this page together, as we all walk into the next chapter peacefully,” she added.
Somerhalder also shared the same photo, insisting that there is no bad blood between Reed and Dobrev — and it’s all “love” between the 2 actresses.
“After years of websites pretending these two badass ladies knew each other well and baseless, false information of back stabbing and hatred from low-brow websites filled the minds and hearts of fans… They finally were able to get together for their first real dinner. Let’s stop spreading hate everyone, there’s already too much of that right now in our world. Join in on the love. Only love here – always has been, always will be,” said the 38-year-old actor.
“Media companies preying on the passion from vulnerable and or impressionable minds of fans to sell advertising through click-though traffic is a disease in our society. It’s poisonous. Let’s finish this series with respect and kindness and continue that in our lives. I think it’s time. What do [you] think?” he asked. We couldn’t agree more 😉
Somerhalder and Dobrev, together with the rest of “The Vampire Diaries” cast have just wrapped filming for the hit series. You can check out photos from their wrap party here.
