On screen, he may have played a supernatural being blessed with eternal life, but alas, in real life, Paul Wesley’s relationship is all too vulnerable to the ravishes of time. 

Which is a very convoluted way of saying that The Vampire Diaries star and his girlfriend, actress Phoebe Tonkin, have broken up. 

Wesley and the Australian Tonkin have been together for four years, and actually met on the set of Vampire Diaries, which in ending of overload, is nearing its series finale. 

E! News is reporting that they pair broke up shortly after spending Christmas Down Under with Tonkin’s fam, and “remain good friends”.
