Chad Michael Murray & Nicky Whelan Dating; ‘Left Behind’ Co-Stars Confirm Relationship on Twitter [PHOTO, VIDEO]
One Tree Hill star Chad Michael Murray is reportedly dating another one of his co-stars.
The 32-year-old confirmed his relationship with his Left Behind cast member Nicky Whelan with a Twitter picture of the two kissing.
"I am a very lucky man. Blessed 2 feel the way I do with @NickyWhelan! I hope each of u feels the same in ur world!" Murray captioned the photo.
Whelan, 32, is not the first co-star Murray has dated since he became a household name on the WB, and later CW's, One Tree Hill. The drama series focused on half-brothers Lucas and Nathan Scott as they compete for both basketball stardom and love in small town North Carolina. Murray portrayed Lucas on the show and had on-screen relationships with Sophia Bush's Brooke Davis, Hilarie Burton's Peyton Sawyer and Michaela McManus's Lindsey Strauss.
Murray and Bush's relationship continued off-screen and the two married in 2005 after two years of dating. Bush filed for an annulment after only five months later following allegations that Murray cheated on her with his House of Wax co-star Paris Hilton.
Murray then went on to date Kenzie Dalton, an extra on the TV series, and the two were engaged for seven years before calling off the relationship in September 2013.
Bush went on to date her co-stars since her marriage with Murray ended. She reportedly was in a relationship with James Lafferty, who played One Tree Hill's Nathan, from 2008-2009. In 2010 she confirmed an on-again, off-again relationship with Austin Nichols, who later joined the show to play her love interest and eventual husband Julian Baker. However, the two split in February 2012.
