The Story of How Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed First Got Together Is a Bit Complicated
Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed famously tied the knot less than four months after getting engaged in April 2015. The couple, who are currently expecting their first child together, have been making us swoon for quite some time now with their adorable outings and sweet social media posts about each other, but the story of how they began dating is just a tad complicated. While the details aren't totally clear, their relationship can be traced back to when Ian used to date Nina Dobrev and Nikki was married to American Idol alum Paul McDonald. Ian and Nina eventually called it quits in May 2013, and Ian began dating Nikki the following year, a few months after she separated from Paul.

Nina Dobrev and Nikki Reed Address Those Feud Rumors - Once and For All
A photo posted by Nikki Reed (@iamnikkireed) on Feb 7, 2017 at 10:51am Pst Before Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed tied the knot in April 2015, there was a time when he famously dated his The Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev. While it may seem harmless enough, Ian and Nina were reportedly both friends with Nikki and her then-husband, Paul McDonald. Since then, there have been rumors of a feud between Nina and Nikki, and though the ladies have never publicly addressed it (that is, until now), fans even believed that Nina left The Vampire Diaries because of her breakup with Ian. Fast forward to present day, and the two women are finally putting those rumors to rest. On Tuesday, Nina sent Instagram into a social frenzy when she uploaded a snap of her hanging out with none other than Nikki and Ian. Along with the silly shot, Nina casually wrote, "Can't believe how time flies.

American Idol Series Finale Recap: Did the Right Contestant Win? Plus: TVLine's Series Finale Awards!
Kieran, turn out the lights.

Our American Idol “journey” has come to an end, but let us not weep for what’s been cancelled, let us instead go to iTunes and download the Season 15 winner’s new single. Hey, from a songwriting vantage point, it may not be “Home,” but it definitely ranks above “No Boundaries” and “Inside Your Heaven” — and we bought those, too. And if this show can produce one more bona fide radio/touring superstar, maybe the inevitable reboot will happen sooner than expected, no?

Jennifer Hudson to Sing Aretha Franklin Songs in an Aretha Franklin Movie This Time
As Tracking Board first reported and The Wrap confirmed, Jennifer Hudson is in talks to star in an Aretha Franklin biopic from Straight Outta Compton producer Scott Bernstein. The biopic, which has Franklin's approval, would focus in equal parts on her singing career and her marriage to abusive manager Ted White. In 2012, Franklin told Glamour her main concern with the film was accuracy: "Let's present the facts and be as creative as possible with them." (She also said she wanted Denzel Washington or Billy Dee Williams to play her father.) Hudson has long been rumored as the possible star of a Franklin biopic; she auditioned for American Idol with a version of Franklin's "Share Your Love With Me," and performed "Baby, I Love You" during Idol's Soul Week. Meanwhile, Paul McDonald's Rod Stewart biopic still languishes in development hell.
