Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev may have enjoyed a loved-up date night at the Oscars last month but split speculation has been building since then, as the couple spend time on solo projects miles apart.
A week after the Oscars, Ian was on the road travelling to New Orleans for work with his charity, The Ian Somerhalder Foundation, which aims to educate people on the importance of protecting the environment and animals:
"Headed to New Orleans to #IFSTHINKTANK w/amazing peeps. Bringing biz leaders, educators, innovators together to discuss sustainability—love it (sic)," Ian tweeted on March 2 .
According to reports, Nina was not with her man for his important meeting, with some speculating this could be a sign of a rocky patch for the couple.
In fact Celeb Dirty Laundry claim that instead of Nina, Ian was "enjoying" the company of Foundation employees Kim Klinger and Jessica Ramsey, with the two ladies "enjoying a flirty, busy weekend with the sexy part-vampire part-billionaire executive."

There's no evidence Ian and his employees were busy doing anything other than work though, with the actor tweeting later that week his thanks for his team: "so grateful to have the best team of people in my life- thank you all. Seriously".
Away from the rumours and there's no doubt the star has been traveling nearly every week recently. Ian was also spotted flying into to Los Angeles this morning, with no sign of Nina, who is thought to be back home in Atlanta.
"Wheels down in Rainy LA-in search of a movie..." Ian tweeted very early this morning whilst Nina has remained pretty quiet on her own account recently.
What do you think? Are the couple simply enjoying some alone time or are all the miles apart an indicator of something more serious?
