It’s unclear if they are back together or just friends, but Paul and Phoebe recently called it quits after nearly four years of dating.
“They are still good friends,” a source said at the time. “The relationship just ran its course.”
They met on set of The Vampire Diaries during season three. Paul was previously married to Pretty Little Liars actress Torrey DeVitto.

Stelena fans, you may want to read this.
The Vampire Diaries executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson both confirmed that had Nina Dobrev not left the show in season six, Stefan and Elena probably would have found heir way back together romantically.
“I wanted to see if there was a way to bring Stefan and Elena back together one more time,” Julie told TheWrap.com. “But Nina left the show and that sealed Delena in for life.”
Kevin told Deadline, “I always thought it would be Stefan and Elena. They were sort of the anchor of the show, but because we lost Elena in Season 6, we couldn’t go back. You know Nina could only come back for one episode – maybe if she had came back for the whole season, we could even have warped back towards that, but you can’t just do it in 42 minutes.”
TELL JJJ: Do you wish you would have seen Stelena reunite?
In case you missed it, the Delena proposal was cut from the series finale.
If you’re still upset over that shocking death during The Vampire Diaries finale, this may ease some of your pain.
Executive producer Kevin Williamson explains that the writers talked about a lot of different scenarios before deciding – SPOILER ALERT! – Stefan (Paul Wesley) was the one who had to die.
“Oh, everyone was supposed to die. There were so many conversations in the writers’ room,” Kevin told TVGuide.com. “Everyone had these great ideas. I’m only sad that we couldn’t put everything in there because it was only 42.5 minutes. But there were so many possibilities. It was very important for us not to kill Bonnie (Kat Graham). Bonnie should not have to die for Elena’s happiness. It was this conversation of, ‘Oh, Bonnie can go be with Enzo (Michael Malarkey) because that’s exactly what she would want.’ Like, no. That’s not what Enzo would want. Bonnie needs a full, rich life. She needs a happy ending. So that was important to us, so we couldn’t kill Bonnie.”
“And we can’t kill [Matt, Zach Roerig], because if he’s lived this long as a human, he needs to continue on,” Kevin explained. “If we were going to kill him, it had to have been in Season 4. You can’t do it in Season 8. It was really between Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan. You know, we got rid of Katherine. We killed Katherine. We knew we were going to take her out. There was a conversation that Damon and Stefan both died. And then there was a conversation that it just ended with Damon killing Katherine and saving the town and saving everyone. For me, where the story was when I came in and got involved, Stefan had just been the Ripper for a long period of time and killed Enzo. And the only way for him to come back from that, I felt, was to kill him. That’s why he had to die.”
TELL JJJ: What did you think of Stefan dying on TVD?
In case you missed it, this is who Elena was originally supposed to end up with!
Was last night’s series finale of The Vampire Diaries the best of the best?
During the finale, we said goodbye to one very important character and stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley explains how he truly felt of the ending.
“It’s not the ending that Paul and I always thought we would get — just the two bros in some Speedos on the beach drinking some rum,” Ian joked with EW after the finale aired. “These things are hard to write. You obviously want to pay off an audience for going on a very long journey with you.”
He adds, “The writers themselves want to pay off their own artistic integrity. And so it’s invariably difficult to satisfy everyone, and that’s what I find so interesting about the endings of TV shows that people go on and on and on discussing. You’re never going to satisfy an entire populous of people. The interpretation that you leave is what you leave. This is the end of our show.”
