This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Nikki is supposedly hooking up with another reality competition star, Derek Hough!
"The whole group was drinking and partying. Derek bought shots for Nikki at the bar. There was lots of PDA, Nikki was feeding him, holding hands, and they left together.
They didn't seem to care if anyone was watching."
Sounds like these two were very cozy with each other!
After all, Nikki isn't the first! Right, Nina Dobrev??
