Nina Dobrev Set To Announce New Boyfriend -- Worried About Ian Somerhalder?

Nina Dobrev has allegedly been keeping her new boyfriend, Mark Foster, under wraps. However, according to Celeb Dirty Laundry, the Vampire Diaries star is finally ready to announce to the world, and ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder, that she's got a new man.

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Nina Dobrev is rumored to be dating Ian Somerhalder's close friend, Mark Foster, of the band Foster The People.

Nina and Mark have been spending a lot of time together, but Dobrev hasn't spoken out publicly about her relationship with Foster, likely out of fear that it could cause even more problems on the Vampire Diaries set.

Since Dobrev and Somerhalder split in 2013, things have been rocky. However, when Ian began dating Nina's former friend, Nikki Reed, things got even worse.

There were reports of on set fights and feuds, and when Reed began showing her face on set on a regular basis, there was talk that Dobrev may leave The Vampire Diaries after Season 6.

After a while things began to die down and gossip of a truce and Reed being asked to stay away from the set began to circulate. All seemed to be going well, but if Nina confirms to Ian that she's dating his friend, Mark Foster, there could be another war.

Basically, Nina Dobrev is doing the same thing that she got upset at Ian Somerhalder for doing. However, Mark Foster hasn't been hanging around set.

The Vampire Diaries fans are hoping that whatever issues Nina and Ian seem to have between them that they can be professional enough to carry on the show, as it has a huge following and millions of fans who love the characters, especially Dobrev's Elena Gilbert and Somerhalder's Damon Salvatore.

Meanwhile, Hollywood Life reports that Dobrev has also been getting cozy with former Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford. The pair recently spent Thanksgiving together. However, sources reveal that Nina and Chace are just good friends and that there is no romance brewing between them. They just like to talk to one another and both understand the struggles of working with an ex.

Vampire Diaries fans are still holding out hope that Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder will eventually get back together, but as of right now there are no signs of that ever happening.
