Nina Dobrev is "happy" for Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed and insists their recent wedding had nothing to do with her decision to leave 'The Vampire Diaries'.
The 26-year-old actress, who dated her 'The Vampire Diaries' co-star for three years until May 2013, insists their recent wedding had nothing to do with her decision to leave the TV series after six years.
She said: "When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it's not with us. But of course, we're on a teen drama show, everyone's going to look for drama.
"I just ignore it."
The Bulgarian-born beauty also claims she still has a close friendship with Ian, 36, despite not attending his nuptials.
She told E! News: "I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship. I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now."
Ian and Nikki, who got engaged in January after six months of dating, tied the knot in a romantic ceremony at the Tuscali Mountain Inn in Topanga, California late last month.
