11 Celebrities Who Posed with Their Ex-Bae & Their Next-Bae at the Same Time
UPDATE: Nina Dobrev, Nikki Reed & Ian Somerhalder put the past behind them. Check out our newly-updated gallery below!
You ever get that overwhelmingly cringe-worthy feeling whenever you stumble across an old picture of Nina Dobrev with Nikki Reed? We sure do. After all, they were really close friends before Nikki started dating — and eventually MARRYING — Nina’s ex-boyfriend, Ian Somerhalder. So, like we said, *cringe*.
Fortunately, there aren’t any pictures of the three of them together during Nian’s 3+-year relationship (or after the split, obvs), because we could only imagine the amount of awkward that would ensue after looking at those photos. Actually, we don’t even have to imagine, ’cause these snapshots of celebrities posing with their ex-bae and their next-bae give us just enough of an indication. Don’t worry, we get it — sometimes, you meet the person you want to be with when you’re already with someone else.
It actually happened!
The Vampire Diaries just wrapped up its final episode, which means exes Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder were forced to be in the same room again. But, apparently, everything went down amicably enough. The two even posed with Ian's now-wife, Nikki Reed, who used to be close friends with Nina before Somereed started dated.
"Can't believe how time flies," Nina wrote on Instagram. "Farewell dinner with team Somereed! So good catching up with these goofballs. All ❤"
Nikki followed up in a long Instagram post of her own, "[H]ere'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."
