Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's personal relationship, or lack thereof, could kill The Vampire Diaries. According to Breathcast, the former couple now hate working together, and the tension on set is getting to everyone.
Many fans know that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder play Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore on the hit CW series The Vampire Diaries.
Nina and Ian worked so closely together that they eventually fell in love and began dating. Dobrev and Somerhalder dated for years before finally calling it quits in 2013.
Vampire Diaries fans were super bummed about Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's break up, but were relieved when the two put on a united front, and actually seemed to be close friends after the split.
The couple remained good buddies until around the time that Ian Somerhalder began dating Twilight actress Nikki Reed, who was Nina Dobrev's friend at one time.
Since that time, reports have been flying that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are no longer on speaking terms, and to make matters worse, Nikki Reed has moved in with her new man. She has also been making a lot of appearances on The Vampire Diaries set, which is allegedly rubbing Nina the wrong way.
Of course, Nina Dobrev isn't sitting around pining away for Ian Somerhalder. The actress has been linked to Hollywood hunks such as Liam Hemsworth and Orlando Bloom, and as previously reported by The Inquisitr, is said to be dating Dancing with the Stars hottie Derek Hough, who is the brother of Nina's close friend, Julianne Hough.
Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder's relationship has gotten so bad that if something doesn't change quickly, one or both of them could quit The Vampire Diaries, leaving the show dead in the water for cancellation.
Meanwhile, The Vampire Diaries Season 6, which premiered on Thursday, could be the last, and writers could be trying to tie up loose ends just in case things go south and the show is cancelled.
It seems that Nina Dobrev's character is supposed to end up with Stefan, Damon's do-gooder brother, and if that happens at the end of Season 6, fans may be a bit nervous about the future of The Vampire Diaries.
It's hard to imagine The Vampire Diaries ending already, with so much story seemingly left to tell. However, Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and the rest of the actors aren't getting any younger, and they may want to pursue other aspects of their careers without being tied down to a television show.
