A terrible rumor is circulating the gossip sites concerning our very own Ian Somerhalder. Many have reported that Ian is DATING! I know, try to control your outrage. If Ian finds himself in a relationship, what hope do we Somer-lovers have?!
Thankfully, the record has been set straight. The lady-love in question took to Twitter to dispel the rumors once and for all. Molly DeWolf Swenson responded to a fan’s posting:
PHEW! With a sigh of relief, I can safely report that Ian is single and ready to mingle!
Although social media was responsible for the diffusion of the rumor, it was also the culprit behind the creation. Ian and Molly are currently working together on a project called RYOT and, after a few misleading Twitter and Instagram posts, assumptions were made.
Having way too much fun with my @ryotnews fam, per usual… @iansomerhalder @brynmooser

What have we learned from this, kids? Don’t always believe what you see on the socials AND Ian is a free man!
