What Really Happened Between Nina Dobrev And Glen Powell?

"The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev dated "Scream Queens" actor Glen Powell back in 2017, as People reported at the time. Unnamed sources had, however, denied their relationship to ET earlier that same year. Though both parties have since moved on in their romantic lives (Dobrev with Olympian Shaun White and Powell with multi-hyphenate Gigi Paris), their low-key relationship and apparent lack of drama in the headlines left many fans wondering why Dobrev and Powell ended up going their separate ways.

ET mentioned that the two were just friends when the outlet denied the actors' relationship, and they appear to have stayed on friendly terms despite their split. In fact, Us Weekly reported that Dobrev and White attended the premiere of "Top Gun: Maverick" together to show their support for Dobrev's former flame, who stars in the film as "Hangman." It's great to see famous exes who haven't stirred up scandalous headlines, and it probably won't come as a surprise to learn that the split between Dobrev and Powell may have been a mutual decision.

Nina Dobrev and Glen Powell seem to have parted ways amicably

Actors Nina Dobrev and Glen Powell only dated for a few months, it seems, based on People's report of their split at the time. "There hasn't been an official 'split' but Nina and Glen have been taking time apart," a source similarly told E! News about the celebrity couple. Based on what the source said to E! News, it seems as though the actors' work got in the way of their relationship. The insider added, "Nina just wrapped on a project and is about to start another and her schedule has been a huge part of it. They haven't been spending much time together since the end of the summer."

Although a source told Us Weekly in late August 2017 that the two were "getting pretty serious" about one another, it seems things came to a natural and relatively uneventful end for Dobrev and Powell. Neither actor seems to have discussed the other in interviews when they were dating or after the fact, although Dobrev once shared an Instagram post of her and Powell recreating a pose from the film "La La Land" during the period when they were rumored to be together.

Nina Dobrev is now living with Shaun White

According to a report from Us Weekly, Nina Dobrev and her new partner Shaun White have been living together in New York City since around September 2022. White, who has retired from snowboarding professionally, spoke to E! News the following month about his relationship with the "Love Hard" star. In that interview, he explained to the outlet that he had no plans at the time to get engaged to Dobrev, saying, "Time will tell. Things are great with Nina and I, and I am so excited to focus on our relationship and my relationship with other friends and family."

Per another story by Us Weekly, Dobrev and White celebrated Christmas 2022 with a vacation to Mexico on which they brought along members of both their families. This closeness suggests that the two have remained in a serious relationship with one another, even if they have no immediate plans to walk down the aisle. For Glen Powell's part, he seems to be going strong with Gigi Paris. The Texas native frequently makes appearances on his girlfriend's stylish Instagram page.
