Nina Dobrev used humor and social media to deny rumors that she is dating “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Orlando Bloom and TV actors Benjamin McKenzie and Derek Theler this week.
“Apparently I have SOOOO many boyfriends,” Dobrev, 25, posted to her WhoSay account Sunday night. “Here’s four more,” she captioned alongside an image of her posing with four of her male “Vampire Diaries” co-stars, Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig, Joseph Morgan (now of “The Originals”) and Matthew Davis.
While Dobrev has since deemed the dating rumors “tabloid silliness,” that didn’t stop her from posting an image of another potential “sexy” suitor Sunday, a hairless kitten. “Oh wait, one more suitor! This guy,” she joked.
According to multiple gossip reports, Dobrev was seen flirting with three Hollywood actors while attending Comic-Con 2014 in San Diego last month.
Us Weekly reported that “The Vampire Diaries” actress, who split from her co-star, Ian Somerhalder, 35, in May 2013, was seen flirting with Bloom while attending Zachary Levi’s #NerdHQ party July 26. “Nina has known Orlando for a few years now,” an insider told the magazine. “She’s always thought he was an attractive man.”
HollywoodLife reported that Dobrev locked lips with “Baby Daddy” actor Theler, 27, the same night at Entertainment Weekly’s 2014 Comic-Con Celebration. “The kiss from the ‘Baby Daddy’ guy was in the moment and out of nowhere, liquor-enabled kiss,” said a source. “No tongue or no major passion.”
Despite Dobrev’s rumored hookup with Theler, the actress reportedly ended the night with a different celeb— actor Benjamin McKenzie of “Southland” fame. In photos obtained by Just Jared, Dobrev can be seen leaving the soiree sans her original companion, actress Kate Graham, with McKenzie, 35, in the same cab.
Dobrev dated Somerhalder for three years before the couple called their on-screen turned off-screen romance quits in May 2013. Since their split, Dobrev has been linked to "The Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth and her co-star, Michael Trevino.
Last month, rumors circulated that Somerhalder has been seeing "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed, 26. Somerhalder recently declined a request from E! News to confirm their romance.
