That Time Ian Somerhalder Told Fans ‘Don’t Follow Us’ and Made a Girl Cry in Paris
No one ever said being a celebrity was easy. Nor is being a fan, apparently.
In the 30-second video posted originally by @94Somerhalder, a fan who was on the scene, Somerhalder and Reed exited a building to a group of fans awaiting them. One of them tried to take a selfie with Somerhalder, setting him off.
According to Gossipcop, he said, “Hey guys, listen. No, no. Stop. Everybody listen. I love you guys, but I’m not taking a single photo today. It’s my day.” He continued to tell the crowd, “Don’t follow us, please. I love you, guys. You’re so good to us. You’re so awesome.”
When a fan asked Somerhalder to take “just one” picture, he responded, “No, that’s not just one,” and the girl began to cry. He then asked the crowd again, “But you guys, don’t follow us, please. I love you guys. Do not follow us. Okay? It’s too much.”

Gossipcop reports, “The clip cut off as the fans continued to plead for photos with him.”
This video certainly is of a different tune from the romantic one of their wedding that Reed posted on Wednesday (May 27, 2015).
