Ian my man ! I love him, Nikki Reed is a lucky girl to have him by herside

Please... this man now gets mad, because some fan don't like his gf, Ian starts becoming an ass..., go against the fans, because he feels too famous, and wants his privacy, I really don't care if he dating Nina or Nikki, but I missing the days, where we call "family". At last the sanctuary was built, so probably he don't need anymore to doing the part of good guy...
