Vampire Diaries costars Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev have called it quits after dating for several years, PEOPLE has confirmed.
The couple were last seen taking a late-night trip to a cat hospital together last month, with no sign then that their own relationship may have been hurting.
Somerhalder, 34, and Dobrev, 24, kept their romance secret during their early days as a couple, despite evidence that they were together.

Krysten Ritter got into the Golden Globes spirit a little early.
The Don't Trust the B---- star made her way to Nine Zero One salon in West Hollywood for some VIP hair and beauty treatment before heading to a chic pre-Globes event on Saturday.
Starting with her hair at the shop's Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar, co-sponsored by Joico, the actress opted for a "braided up-do to show off her gown that evening," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "After seeing a photo of her good friend Nina Dobrev, Krysten asked for a copycat look."
When it came time for beauty, Ritter went for something much more subtle, requesting a look that was "au naturel," the observer says.
Ritter, who the source says "was in a really good mood and excited about the night," chatted with a fellow salon-goer about surfing and snowboarding.

Temptation is tough – just ask Nina Dobrev.
The Vampire Diaries star, 23, went into filming CW's hit series with every intention of keeping things strictly business. Instead, she ended up with a boyfriend: costar Ian Somerhalder, 33.
"The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said, 'Nina: Why she wouldn't date any of her costars,' " she recalls to the magazine in its October issue. "And then cut to two years later ... it's funny that I said that."

"The other brothers that I'm torn between... Like Elena's, they've stolen my heart," she Tweeted Sunday, sharing a photo of two kittens. "One is energetic, the other is a cuddler and they both need love – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want a kitten!"

Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev arrived separately and refused to pose together on the red carpet when the Vampire Diaries actor hosted The Influence Affair, an environmental benefit, at a private home in Bel Air, Calif., on Saturday – but that didn't mean the private twosome stayed apart for long.
"They sat together at dinner, and when Ian noticed Nina was shivering, he offered her his blazer to keep her warm," an onlooker tells PEOPLE of the event, co-sponsored by VeeV. "There was no overt PDA, but there was a certain lovey way about how they looked at each other."
Following a show by graffiti artist Erik Wahl, the pair quietly slipped away for a little one-on-one time during a tour of the mansion where the event was held.
"They were holding hands during the tour," the source says. "They seemed very close and comfortable together."
