They met on the set of Killer Movie in 2007 and have been linked as a couple ever since. Paul Wesley broke many hearts of his female fans when he rather quietly married his long-time girlfriend Torrey DeVitto in April 2011.
Wesley, best known for his role as Stefan Salvatore (as well as Silas and Tom Avery) on The Vampire Diaries, and Torrey, of Army Wives and Pretty Little Liars, made a beautiful couple and there’s little doubt that they would have had beautiful children. But it never came to it. Both busy in their respective careers, they were likely not thinking quite yet of starting a family.
They were able to spend more time together than is usually available for TV-star couples, when Torrey signed on for a recurring role on Vampire Diariesfor the 2012 fall season. Torrey would always gush about her then-husband when asked and they seemed very much a couple in love.
But somehow things started to fall apart in the first half of 2013. Torrey was busy on two successful shows, Paul’s star continued to rise on Vampire Diaries. He was nominated several times for the Teen Choice Award that same year.
Sadly, it would appear that their lives simplydrifted apart. In July 2013 they announced their amicable split, adding that they will continue to remain good friends. An iron-clad pre-nup pretty much ensured that the divorce continued smoothly, each leaving with the assets they had brought to the table and keeping the money they had earned in the meantime.
Neither one seems to have uttered a single negative word about the other. There was no dirty laundry, no screaming matches, simply a parting of the ways. Not even the media was able to shovel anything nasty on the whole affair. A few pitiful mentions were made of how much money each of them took away, and that Paul got three of their four cars.But since both are now pursuing successful careers on TV, one would very much doubt that either one is off worse than the other.
Paul started dating his co-star Phoebe Tonkin around the same time he split from his ex-wife, which is just about the only thing that could give you pause. But he insists that he only started seeing her after the split and there’s no reason not to believe him. The new couple have been rather quiet and rarely out in public together. Perhaps Paul learned something from his first marriage and wants to keep this new relationship more private. They are still going strong well over a year into their relationship.
Torrey DeVitto has last been linked to surfer Carlos Munoz, whom she has been dating since October last year. However, they are keeping it just as much on the down low as her ex and his new girlfriend, rarely making it into the celebrity news.
Let’s wish them both happiness in their new relationships, since they clearly have moved on from one another.
