The breakup of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev is the talk of the web, with crushed fans everywhere scratching their heads and looking for answers.
Or at least wondering what might have torpedoed the romance.
While neither has officially commented, Ian posted a cryptic Tweet after news of the split broke, and now a recent comment of hers is sparking speculation as well.
The general consensus is that The Vampire Diaries stars are at different points in life and just drifted apart, while remaining best friends, there may be more to it.
Last month, before the split became public, the actress wrote:
“Quote of the day: Ask for forgiveness, not permission.”
At the time, fans speculated that Ian had been caught stepping out on her, and that rather than try to make things right, he suggested they take a break.
Now, weeks later, in light of the breakup, that sentiment rings true to many in the actress' camp who say that she effectively ended their relationship.
Pure celebrity gossip here. No more, no less. Those Tweets could mean anything, and we certainly don't know what caused them to call it quits.
Still, when the breakup happens and then you read "quotes of the day" like they've both posted with what seem like clear allusions to the other ...
Makes you think, no?
