"The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev is reportedly jealous of ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. While many would think that it might be something to do with his relationship with "Twilight" star Nikki Reed, Dobrev is in fact said to be jealous of the fame and fortune the actor is receiving now.

An article on celebdirtylaundry claims that Dobrev is not very happy with her new life since she split with Somerhalder, who in turn has been getting a lot of public attention and media coverage thanks to his engagement.

The website also stated that currently "The Vampire Diaries" actor is more known to the general public than his co-star and ex-girlfriend, as people are more interested in reading about a celeb's personal life, especially engagement, marriage and babies, than the professional one. 

While Somerhalder has become more popular with his PDA-filled dates and future plans with Reed, Dobrev is not able to create the same kind of buzz, due to which she is reportedly jealous of her ex-beau. 

However, Somerhalder had earlier cleared the air about the issue in an interview with Fox's morning news show "Fox & Friends". The 36-year-old actor had denied all the speculations about the kind of equation he and his ex-girlfriend share. "Everything is incredible right now. There are no rifts...there are no's all very Shakespearean in a way," he said

So it remains to be how the onscreen couple, who called off their relationship in May 2013, will tackle all the rumours that are doing the rounds on the internet.
