Nina Dobrev has not predicted that newly engaged Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed will break up soon, despite a totally made-up story from a highly unreliable blog. Gossip Cop has investigated, and Dobrev has not said anything like that.

According to a webloid with a terrible track record, “Nina is confident that Ian and Nikki will breakup before they even make it to marriage – probably a few months into being engaged.” Why? Celeb Dirty Laundry claims Dobrev “predicts a breakup and failed engagement largely because [of] their past histories,” noting how Somerhalder and Dobrev didn’t work out after two years of dating and also Reed’s marriage ended in divorce.

Of course, all of this comes from the same webloid that falsely reported not too long ago how Dobrev and Somerhalder had been “flirting” on the set of “The Vampire Diaries” and may be “reconciling.” The site has also wrongly and repeatedly linked Dobrev to a slew of men who she’s never dated. Basically, CDL knows nothing about Dobrev. In fact, even its own readers have slammed the bogus blog, with one commenter noting how it invents “fake stories,” while another asks, “How do you sleep at night writing such nasty crap?”

And curiously, the webloid does not have any direct quotes from any particular source to back up its allegation that Dobrev “predicts a breakup.” Want to know why? Because Dobrev never said it. Gossip Cop looked into the claim, and an actual source close to the situation tells us CDL’s assertion is both “absurd” and “untrue.”
