Nina Dobrev ‘dating Dominic Howard’

Nina Dobrev

Nina Dobrev has reportedly started dating Dominic Howard.

The 25-year-old The Vampire Diaries actress and the Muse band member were spotted hanging out together at the Coachella Music Fest in April and have been reportedly keeping in touch. Nina and Dominic posted an Instagram picture of themselves with Laura Whitmore in April.

The pair was spotted in Monaco for the Grand Prix last week. An eyewitness apparently saw the actress “macking on” the rocker, according to Perez Hilton, with Celebrity Dirty Laundry also reporting the pair are an item.

Some fans who even took to Twitter to say that they had “caught them making out”.

Nina was previously in a relationship with her The Vampire Dairies co-star Ian Somerhalder, 35. The couple, who met on the set of The Vampire Diaries in 2009, dated for two years. It was rumored that they were talking about getting engaged.

Their split was somewhat ironic as Nina’s CW character Elena and Ian’s character Damon got together on the show around the time that the real-life couple called it quits.

“We started dating on the show,” Nina said at the People’s Choice Awards in January. “We started dating in real life,” Ian added.

“And then we broke up in real life,” the Canadian actress joked, “and yet our characters are still dating on the show. It’s a good thing it’s not awkward.”

Nina has also been linked to Alexander Ludwig, who she got to know while filming The Final Girls, which is set to be released in 2015. There were also rumors she was dating her The Vampire Diaries co-star Michael Trevino, who split from his Glee star girlfriend Jenna Ushkowitz in May after three years.

Nina’s film Let’s Be Cops will hit theatres on August 13.
