Ian Somerhalder's Rumored Girlfriend Responds To Dating Rumors

Molly Swenson & Ian Somerhalder

Molly Swenson opens up about the rumors she's dating Ian Somerhalder. Is it true?!

Ian Somerhalder made waves when E! News spotted the smoldering star holding hands at a party with Molly Swenson, the first lady he's been linked with since his split from The Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev (they definitely hold the record for being the friendliest exes ever). After some radio silence from both Somerhalder and Swenson, Swenson is speaking out. Are they or aren't they?

According to Swenson, they aren't!

The onetime American Idol hopeful replied to a message on Twitter about the dating rumors, saying she's been off the market for two years. She's dating a gentleman named Randal Hark, and apparently they're pretty happy together!

This gives some hope to everyone who wants a Nina-Ian reunion ... and to everyone at RYOT Media who really wanted some press attention. (Pro tip: Don't hold hands with someone you don't want to be rumored to also be bedding. It'll save everyone a lot of trouble.)
