Some malicious little whispers are drifting across the internet that Ian Somerhalder is burning up with jealousy over Nina Dobrev's rumored new squeeze. But, is there any truth in them?

The reputably named Celebrity Dirty Laundry is reporting that Somerhalder just can't get over Dobrev and that he is 'so sad and jealous' about his ex girlfriend's rumored relationship with Dominic Howard of the British rock band, Muse.

According to one of those slippery little anonymous insiders;

Ian is Jealous of Nina’s new boyfriend, but there’s unfortunately not much he can do about. It’s her life and her choice, and she’s made it very clear to Ian that she’s not interested in settling down

Somehow, I'm not convinced.

Somerhalder and Dobrev broke up over a year ago now, and Ian being jealous and possessive of Nina after all this time just doesn't sound like him at all.

The pair have worked together extensively and have repeatedly and publicly confirmed that they are supportive friends to each other these days. Even if Ian did secretly hold a torch for Nina, I'm sure he is emotionally mature enough to manage his feelings like an adult and respect her decisions. The last thing I can imagine is [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) star ranting on about how jealous he is to people he doesn't trust (I'm looking at you, anonymous source!).

Somerhalder is such a positive person, I'm sure you are all with me when I say that I can't imagine him having bad feelings toward anyone. Let alone bitterness toward someone he spent three years of his life in a relationship.

Lastly, Somerhalder has fallen prey to multiple relationship rumors himself. I'm sure he takes things with a suitably large grain of salt when it comes to reporting on Dobrev and her love life. This is just a rumor after all and I can't see a 35-year-old man getting all emotional about it!

So, on that note, I will have to award Ian Somerhalder's rampant jealousy a 3 out of 5 on the bulls**t-o-meter;

Why 3? Well, Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev were actually in a relationship so there could realistically be jealousy issues, and Dobrev was actually photographed with Howard.
