Nina Dobrev finally ditches her crutches after a month of struggling to walk

Nina Dobrev finally ditches her crutches on a coffee run in a floral summer dress after struggling to walk for a month following ‘a tumble from a mechanical bull’

Nina Dobrev has finally ditched her crutches.

The former The Vampire Diaries starlet, 30, was spotted in Hollywood a week ago, hobbling along on a pair of the walking aids, believed to be down to an injury incurred while riding a mechanical bull on her birthday.

But things seemed to have healed up somewhat, as Nina stepped out for a coffee, crutch-free.

She did, however, still sport a support shoe on her left foot, which was the one she injured.

She donned a high-hemmed maroon sundress, in a floral pattern, which showed off her leggy pins.

She clutched a pair of takeout coffees as she donned a pair of circular shades.

She appeared to be make-up free and fresh-faced, wearing her brunette tresses loosely around her shoulders.

The bull incident took place while she was ringing in her 30th, with boyfriend Grant Mellon, at a tequila bar in Pennsylvania. 

She had been celebrating with screenwriter and director Grant – having been an item since around March – on the evening of the bronco incident.

While she has neither confirmed nor denied that this is how she incurred the foot injury, Nina was filmed in a clip atop the bucking bronco as it geared up, making sure she stayed on it for as long as possible.

This turned out only to be 10 seconds, with Nina seen taking a tumble onto the padded mats around the bull. 

According to The Metro, an onlooker revealed that she ‘managed 10 seconds before she got whipped off’.

This was one of the last times she was seen out and about ahead of last weekend, when she appeared with the crutches.

Still keen to carry on as normal, she attended a hot pilates class and an InStyle party, despite struggling with her injured foot.
