Nina Dobrev is single as single can be. “The Vampire Diaries” alum has called off the romance between her and NFL star Tim Tebow.
The two hit it off after their “Lip Sync Battle” stint where Dobrev threw the ultimate shot at Tebow by dressing up as a football player complete with an NFL Broncos jersey, as reported by Popsugar. Meanwhile, Tebow went full Rocky Balboa with his performance of “Eye of the Tiger.”
Things got steamy and a bit awkward with Dobrev’s Marvin Gaye’s classic “Let’s Get It On” rendition when she casually walks up to Tebow and gets flirty with him. The actress even got on the floor, sways her hips against Tebow’s legs amidst loud cheers. As reported by Daily Mail, Tebow has made a vow to stay chaste until marriage and all the grinding on his leg didn’t make it any easier for him to stay steadfast to his pledge.
Dating rumours started popping up after the “Lip Sync Battle” appearance of the two. It was also reported that Dobrev split with boyfriend Austin Powell around this time. Celeb Dirty Laundry even speculates that the two called it quits because of all the grinding Dobrev did on the show.
It seems that at this time, Dobrev is focused on where her career is going because the spark between the actress and Tebow didn’t last long enough. The fling is apparently over and Dobrev is busy with considering what’s next for her in her career.
After she left “The Vampire Diaries,” it has been noted that the only role she landed is as Rebecca in the 2017 action film “xXx The Return of Xander Cage.”
The Inquisitr reports of Dobrev considering returning to the small screen but this time, to the upcoming season of “The Originals.”
The website added that considering how both shows reside in the same world, it would not be surprising if producers had Dobrev appear in a crossover with “The Vampire Diaries.”
