Nikki Reed Reportedly Hooked Up With Derek Hough After Paul McDonald Split

If you can believe US Magazine, Nikki Reed sure loves those reality show boys! One month after her split from American Idol alum Paul McDonald was revealed, the Twilight star was spotted “canoodling” with Dancing with the Stars pro, Derek Hough.

Moving on! Nikki Reed recently hooked up with Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough, multiple sources confirm exclusively to Us Weekly. The new fling came about just one month after the Twilight alum announced her split from husband Paul McDonald after two years of marriage.

Reed, 25, and Hough, 28, were most recently spotted making out at Rock & Reilly’s in L.A. on April 18, an onlooker tells Us. The duo were joined by Hough’s DWTS best friend Mark Ballas and costar Cheryl Burke.

“The whole group was drinking and partying. Derek bought shots for Nikki at the bar,” the eyewitness tells Us. “There was lots of PDA, Nikki was feeding him, holding hands, and they left together.” The onlooker adds: “They didn’t seem to care if anyone was watching.”

Derek is the pro-partner of Amy Purdy on the current season of DWTS. The two are major contenders for the crown. Amy, a speed skater and double amputee, dislocated a rib during Monday’s performance, but hopes to heal up so she can dance next week.
