Los Angeles:`Vampire Diaries` star Ian Somerhalder is reportedly dating former `American Idol` star Molly Swenson.

Somerhalder, who formerly dated his film`s co-star Nina Dobrev, was spotted with Swenson spending some cozy moments last week, reportedly.

They were said to be at a magazine party in Santa Monica, followed by a visit to another mag`s bash, honouring cover star Dylan Penn.

"Ian got off the golf cart, and was wearing a leather jacket and his hair was tousled underneath a cap. As he was walking towards the steps of Club James, he was greeted by two people from the event who introduced himself.

"They shook hands with Ian, smiled, and began ushering the group (Ian, Molly and two pals) inside. Two of Ian`s friends were in front and Ian and his date were following closely behind casually holding hands. They seemed happy, casual, and enjoying the evening," a source said.
