It looks that way...

Nina Dobrev and Orlando Bloom are out of the friendzone – A source tells PEOPLE that the two good-looking singletons have been hanging out romantically recently.
‘They’ve known each other for a while. Recently they’ve been hanging out as more than friends. It’s super casual,’ the source said. However, the source added that Bloom was spotted attending a Coachella party on Friday with a woman who was not Dobrev.
The Vampire Diaries star was also at the festival and the two both attended Saturday’s Neon Carnival. A source tells PEOPLE that Bloom was ‘all over’ model Ashley Haas while Dobrev partied 15-feet away. However, the source said that it wasn’t a sign that Bloom was being rude to Dobrev but more just a sign that things are very casual between them.
A rep for Dobrev tells PEOPLE, ‘Nina and Orlando are just friends. They have the same representation and friends in common, and often end up in the same social group. That’s all it is.’
Another source reiterates that the two are ‘not exclusive’ and that Bloom ‘doesn’t want a girlfriend and enjoys being single.’
‘Orlando is doing great,’ the source tells PEOPLE. ‘He is dating and having a good time. He has known Nina for a long time. They are having fun together.’
The Pirates of the Caribbean star recently opened up about his split from Katy Perry, who also attended Coachella, saying the two have managed to stay friends.
Dobrev, 28, is also friendly with her exes, sharing dinner with Ian Somerhalder, who she dated for several years before calling it quits in 2013, and his wife, Nikki Reed in February.
Dobrev even helped Somerhalder, 38, deliver his dog Nietzsche’s puppies.
A rep for Bloom did not respond to requests for comment.
