Since Nina is totally BFF’s with Derek’s sister Julianne Hough, will we be seeing one of our favorite celebrity friendships fall apart from this?! Absolutely not! “Julianne understands – there are no hard feelings,” an insider said. Hey, breakups happen!
Word spread that these two sparked a romance back in September since Nina was spending so much quality time with Julianne -- and we all know that Jules is super close with her brother. “[Nina] was hanging a lot with Derek’s sister Julianne. Then she fell for him,” a source said. “Derek was smitten with Nina. He said he hasn’t felt this way for a girl in a long time… Everyone approves!”
