Despite confirming not too long ago the reasons behind his very amicable and public split with Katy Perry, it appears that Orlando Bloom is putting all the heartache behind him and wasting no time in getting back out on the dating scene.

In some surprising news that no one really saw coming, it appears that the Lord of the Rings star has now begun casually dating none other than Vampire Diaries actress, Nina Dobrev – who not too long ago was rumored to be dating actor Glenn Powell.

A source has confirmed to People that Nina and Orlando have only recently begun to start dating, but it’s nothing serious yet. “They’ve known each other for a while. Recently they’ve been hanging out as more than friends. It’s super casual,” the source admitted.

Of course it’s surprising to hear that a potential romance is blossoming between the two actors, but in even more shocking news – who even knew Nina and Orlando knew one another or ran in similar social circles.

Though those hoping there would be a sighting of the two coupling up at Coachella this weekend as many other stars have, well it appears that it’s not going to happen. Both stars have been spotted in attendance at the annual music festival, but they did not go together. It appears each is spending time with their individual group of friends. Nina has been busy showing off all the fun she’s been having on her Instagram story, and Orlando was spotted at the festival with a girl who wasn’t the actress.

Looks like we’re just gonna have to keep an eye on social media. The music festival is definitely not over yet, so there’s still plenty of time left to see whether or not Nina and Orlando decide to check out an artist performing together.
