Ian Somerhalder and Those Molly Swenson Dating Rumors
Rumors began circulating that Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder has a lady in his life who is NOT his co-star and ex Nina Dobrev.
E! News reported that the 35-year-old actor may be dating Molly Swenson, a former American Idol contestant. According to the site, the pair was photographed party-hopping this week, first attending the Details magazine party before hitting up the Treats! magazine cocktail party. Sources at the parties claimed that the duo weren’t “overly affectionate,” but remained close to each other and casually held hands.
“They seemed happy, casual and enjoying the evening,” one "insider" said.
But their “romance” is definitely not what it seems. Swenson took to Twitter to reveal that she has actually been “off the market” for two years.

However, pics like this don't help the rumors.
Swenson is the chief operating officer at RYOT News, an organization where Somerhalder is on the advisory board.
