Nikki Reed: Thrilled Over Nina Dobrev TVD Departure?

We're not sure what Nina Dobrev's supporters are going to make of this!, but...

News of the actress' departure from The Vampire Diaries after the end of the current season hit the Web yesterday, causing an outpouring of sadness from the show's fans. 

However, it seems not everyone is crying over Dobrev's announcement

According to Hollywood Life, a source revealed that Reed is relieved Dobrev will be leaving the series:

“One person who isn’t sad to see Nina leave is Nikki. She has definitely been persona non grata on the set and it made things uncomfortable with her and Ian."

"It’s a relief that Nikki can now visit her fiance on set and not worry about any awkwardness with his ex and her friends.”

Dobrev and Somerhalder broke up after three years of dating, but their onscreen counterparts still remain an item. Reed and Somerhalder got together shortly after and got engaged after only six months of dating.

It's unclear if tension on set may have caused Dobrev to leave. The actress explained on her Instagram:

"I always knew I wanted Elena's story to be a six season adventure, and within those six years I got the journey of a lifetime."

"There's more to come before we wrap this up, and I promise you'll get to hear all about my experiences over the next month as we approach the season finale...

... But until then I invite you to hop on the roller coaster ride that is Elena Gilbert's life and join me as I celebrate her and prepare to say goodbye to her - and to my work family - as I move on to the next chapter of my life."

Reed hasn't exactly been welcomed on TVD set, or by the fans since many of them were heartbroken when Dobrev and Somerhalder split. 

Although, you can't exactly blame a girl for being relieved her fiance doesn't have to make out with his ex-girlfriend anymore!
