No bad blood, but still a few tears. When Nina Dobrev and ex Ian Somerhalder reunited at The CW’s Upfront even in New York City on Thursday, May 16, the weight of their breakup still made the Vampire Diaries actress a bit misty-eyed.
“Her eyes welled up. She looked so sad,” a source tells Us Weekly of witnessing Dobrev, 24, having a heart-to-heart with Somerhalder, 34, at the end of the night. Earlier this month, Us Weekly broke news that the pair, who costar on the CW show, split after three years of dating.
“They avoided eye contact,” the source added of the pair’s interaction before their chat. “It was awkward.”
