Just a little while ago, Nikki Reed and her husband, American Idol alum Paul McDonald, decided to call it quits on their less than three-year marriage, as reported by Us Weekly. A rep told the publication:
After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage. They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations. They will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, I’m Not Falling, releasing in 2014. They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together.

In September – October 2013, Derek was linked to Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, who is also a friend of Julianne Hough’s. After their split, there were apparently no hard feelings as Hollywood Life reported their holiday gathering in December 2013.
The Vampire Diaries star once again joined BFF Julianne Hough and her rowdy family for some holiday fun, and this time she even participated in a Christmas dance-off with her ex-boyfriend Derek Hough.
