Nina Dobrev & Nikki Reed Shut Down Feuding Rumours With One Jaw-Dropping Picture
Well that’s one way to silence the haters…
Nikki, husband Ian Somerhalder and his ex Nina all took to Instagram to post a picture of themselves having their 'first real dinner' altogether, alongside powerful messages to finally silence years of rumours about a long-standing feud between them.
Nikki wrote: “For the last few years we thought addressing any baseless rumors with silence was the best way. Besides, who wants to respond to made up stories about "friends backstabbing friends", "cheating exes", or "cast members exiting shows" on low-brow websites like hollywoodlife that are just perpetuating trends that preceded us. Yuck."
Adding: “I now see that silence was taken as an opportunity to fill in the blanks with even more falsities, and juicer stories.”
Ian's wife went on to use this situation as an example of breeding a generation of women who hate on other women, writing: “So here's to putting an end to all those fake stories of on set jealousy, betrayal, made-up-friendships lost & women hating women. Because at the end of the day, that's what this is about: teaching girls that you have to hate other girls only breeds a generation of women who believe you have to hate other women.”
She finally went on to calling out ‘fake stories’ that had painted them in the media as ‘bitter’ women: “Let's use this as an example of how important it is to stop this trend of writing horrible headlines about women, painting us as bitter, angry, insecure, heartbroken, childless, feuding, backstabbing monsters because whether we want to admit it or not, it changes the way all women view themselves.”
Whilst Ian's ex Nina let her picture do all the talking, simply by captioning it: “Can't believe how time flies. Farewell dinner with team Somereed! So good catching up with these goofballs.”
Nina and Ian dated for three years whilst filming The Vampire Diaries before splitting in 2013 and then Nina left the series two years later. After six months of dating, Ian then got engaged to Nikki in January 2015.
Many rumours circulated that Nina left the show because of his wedding to Nikki - which Nina didn't attend. Yet neither girls ever commented on the situation so we're not sure why so many people jumped to conclusions.
They’re tired of all the fake stories, got it?!
