Vampire back on the market


Dear Diary: We can start dreaming again.

Ian Somerhalder is a single man. Apparently the 34-year-old and his Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev have called it quits.

Dobrev, 24, told Seventeen last fall that she didn’t mean to fall in love on the set: “My goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long — which I did for a really, really long time.”

Metal mystery

Fans of the metal band As I Lay Dying were reeling about the revelation that lead singer Tim Lambesis has been accused of doing very bad things. Authorities said Lambesis tried to hire an undercover detective he believed was a hit man to rub out his estranged wife Meggan. He was arrested Tuesday in California and was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday.

Divorce documents show that Meggan was concerned about his parenting of their three adopted children from Ethiopia, ages 4, 8 and 10.

She said her ex had become “obsessed with bodybuilding,” spent thousands on tattoos and was distracted while with the kids, often texting or talking on the phone. She noted he had fallen asleep while watching them as they went swimming. Both had agreed to private mediation to discuss the children’s custody.

AILD has released six albums; 2007’s An Ocean Between Us reached No. 8 on Billboard’s charts. A single from the album, Nothing Left, was nominated for a Grammy. The band was to tour this summer.

Rapper’s condition

Lil Wayne is as surprised as anyone when he gets a seizure. “No warning, no nothing, I don’t feel sick,” he said on MTV’s RapFix Live.

Weezy has no memory of what he has gone through: “I go to sleep and wake up in the hospital.”

The pain of fame

Rob Kardashian doesn’t have his lawyer dad around anymore but at least Robert Shapiro is stepping up.

The reality star appeared in court over an alleged scuffle with a photographer in March. He was charged with two misdemeanors — one count of battery and one for petty theft. The E! star entered a plea of not guilty and was allowed to remain free on his own recognizance. He must return to court May 29 for pretrial, reports EOnline. Kassandra Perez filed a civil lawsuit against Kardashian last month, alleging he struck her and took her camera card after she snapped the beefy bro leaving a gym.
