Nina Dobrev is ready to set the record straight.

To say The Vampire Diaries fanbase was distraught after Nina announced she was leaving The Vampire Diaries after six seasons is a bit of an understatement, with fans and media alike soon speculating that she was leaving the CW hit series due to her 2013 break up with co-star Ian Somerhalder (despite the fact the two have remained friendly, even addressing their split on stage at the People's Choice Awards while accepting the award for "Best Chemistry" in 2014).

For the first time since his April wedding to Nikki Reed, Nina is breaking her silence on all those rumors that her breakup with Ian was behind her decision to leave TVD in an exclusive sit-down interview with E! NewsMaria Menounos

And per usual, her answer is totally perfect and the definition of class.

"I've said this before, that we didn't break up because anything bad happened or because there wasn't love or friendship," Nina says. "I love him and the friendship is still strong and I think he's great and I care about him. And that didn't change. Yes, we're professional and that's fine. We were friends long before we dated and we still are now."

Can you say healthiest breakup ever?! Seriously, other celebs should be taking notes right now. 

Nina also addressed Ian and Nikki's recent nuptials, saying, "When I heard about the wedding, I thought it was beautiful. They look happy and I am happy and so I don't see why there should be a problem with that. The drama is in the media, it's not with us. But of course, we're on a teen drama show, everyone's going to look for drama. If there's no drama, there's nothing to write about. I just ignore it."
