Nina Dobrev is making it perfectly clear that she didn’t leave “The Vampire Diaries” because of her split with Ian Somerhalder. Despite all the manufactured tabloid and webloid stories that Gossip Cop routinely busts, she explains her decision to say goodbye to the CW series after six seasons had nothing to do with Somerhalder who even today she says, “I love him.” Dobrev also talks about Somerhalder’s “beautiful” wedding to Nikki Reed.

In an interview with E!, Dobrev says about her ex’s marriage to Reed, “When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy, and so I don’t see why there should be a problem with that.” The actress rightfully notes, “The drama is in the media, it’s not with us. But, of course, we’re on a teen drama show, everyone’s going to look for drama. If there’s no drama, there’s nothing to write about.” Dobrev adds, “I just ignore it.”

And of her relationship with Somerhalder, Dobrev confirms what Gossip Cop has been reporting for the past two years. She says, “We didn’t break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn’t love or friendship.” She reveals, “I love him and the friendship is still strong. And I think he’s great, and I care about him and that didn’t change.” Dobrev stresses, “We’re professional and that’s fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now.”
