The Vampire Diaries Breakup You Never Saw Coming Actually Happened!
We were already pretty sad that The Vampire Diaries‘ series finale airs tomorrow night, but now there’s even MORE horrible TVD news upon us — After about four years of dating, Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin have called it quits.
A source confirmed the breakup news to E! News saying, “They are still good friends; the relationship just ran its course.”
The 27-year-old actress and 34-year-old actor met on the set of the CW show back in 2012 and started dating shortly after. The couple used to frequently post pictures together on social media, but haven’t been seen together since they were seen flying to Sydney, Australia, to celebrate Christmas with her family.
Paul is currently in Toronto where he’s directing an episode of Shadowhunters and Phoebe was just in France for Paris Fashion Week.
Not gonna lie, we did not see this split coming and are pretty bummed about it…and clearly so are these fans!

Paul and Phoebe are just two Vampire Diaries co-stars who met while filming the show:
Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder
This is probably the most well-known relationship in TVD history, almost as legendary as the love triangle between Nina's character Elena, Ian's Character Damon and Paul Wesley's character Stefan… almost. The couple seriously dated for three years before ending their romance in May 2013.
Although they parted ways they still worked together up until 2015 when Nina left the show. They have always been super supportive of one another and let's face it their nice words about each other makes us miss when these two were an item. Ian went on to date and marry Nina's friend Nikki Reed in April 2015, while the Bulgarian actress has been linked to numerous Hollywood hotties including her most recent beau Austin Stowell.
