    Earlier this week, Murray was spotted out with Australian actress Nicky Whelan, sparking rumors or a possible split from Dalton. Murray and Whelan were snapped together in a car while driving away from the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.

    Before Dalton, Murray was married to his One Tree Hill costar Sophia Bush. The duo married in April 2005 after two years of dating, only to divorce just five months after tying the knot.

    He also recently wrote, "Best friends are hard to find. Gotta handle the good &the crazy! #GregAnthony #StrongWork."
