Now, according to various reports around the web, Nina Dobrev and her Vampire Diaries co-star [no, not Ian Somerhalder] are dating. And who is this mystery co-star? Well, Michael Trevino, according to the gossip.
If this is true, then Nina Dobrev is definitely developing the habit of dating her co-stars. Can anyone blame her, though? She’s often stuck with her Vampire Diaries co-stars for half of the year, spending almost 12-15 hours a day with them.
The rumors began after a picture was uploaded to Nina’s Instagram showing Nina and Michael. The duo seemed quite close and had just finished bowling, and although the picture was quite innocent, fans immediately jumped on the bandwagon that Nina and Michael might have something going on between them. However, despite numerous questions thrown in by fans, neither Nina nor Michael responded to whether they were seeing each other.
Of course, there’s also the whole Nina/Ian saga to consider, as well as the fact that Michael is still supposedly dating Jenna Ushkowitz, the Glee star. But as we’ve seen in the past, past and present relationships don’t necessarily deter actors from pursuing a relationship.
It’s been almost a year since Nina and Ian broke up, and although there have been plenty of rumors that Ian’s still interested in Nina, Nina doesn’t seem to have reciprocated those feelings. She’s already rebounded with Derek Hough and [possibly] Liam Hemsworth, so what’s stopping her from dating another co-star? Sure, it might become exceedingly awkward on set, but since when has that stopped co-stars from dating before?
What do you guys think? Are Nina and Michael dating, or was it all innocent fun that fans read too much into? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
