Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are over, according to E! News’ Marc Malkin. SOB. Zac and Vanessa had been together much longer than normal teenage celebrity relationships – something like four or five years, right? They started dating when they worked together on those High School Musical movies/shows/whatever. So, is Zac getting some on the side? Nope. Allegedly.

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are over.

Sources just told me…

The two, who started dating when they were just teenagers costarring in the hit High School Musical franchise, recently called it quits.

“It’s nothing dramatic,” one source said. “There’s no third party involved.”

Says another source, “They were together for so long. It just ran its course.”

Sources insist they remain friends.

Efron, 23, is currently filming The Lucky One in New Orleans. Hudgens, who turns 22 tomorrow, wraps Journey 2: The Mysterious Island later this week in Hawaii.

[From E! News]

Judging Zac solely on his surprisingly good Details profile a few months ago (where he talked about why he didn’t really want to “bathe in p-ssy”), I tend to think he wasn’t screwing around on Vanessa – he actually seems like a nice kid, and a standup guy. Now, he might have his eye on Vanessa’s replacement, but I don’t think Zac was screwing around on VH, that’s all that I’m saying. So was Vanessa fooling around? Once again, why would she? Zac is the bigger fish in this relationship – and my guess is that he did the dumping, and that he did the “outgrowing”. We’ll see…

    perez is probably overjoyed right now. lol :-)

  2. Obvious says:

    it’s about time! lol. I don’t know why but as a couple they bugged me, as individuals no problem.

  3. grace says:

    He is definitely the big fish, and I would think he is the one who did the dumping. I don’t think Vanessa would leave him, after all, she seems to be relevant for being his girlfriend.

  4. brin says:

    I am taking my mouse ears off to show my sorrow.

  5. serena says:

    I get a strong gay vibe from him.

  6. Hautie says:

    He is a cute guy now… but I bet by the time he is 35 he is going to be gorgeous.

    As long as he keeps his hair cut. haha! I hate all the dumb shaggy cuts that younger man/boys wear…

  7. guesty says:

    thought there were pics of them, just in the last week or so, sucking face in an airport somewhere…hmm.

  8. samigirl says:

    I’m sure his mother is thrilled he is no longer dating someone who has had her vagina splashed around on the interwebs.

  9. lucy2 says:

    Mission accomplished, Tom Cruise?

  10. Kim says:

    Shes just not a good enough actress to pretend to be a gay guys girlfriend anymore.

  11. im awful says:


  12. Deniz says:

    Seriously, who didn’t see that coming.

  13. Cyui says:

    I dought that he seems okay but neither are anything special.

  14. Cyui says:

    They dated for so long Jesus.

  15. KJ says:

    Weird. I could’ve sworn, too, that they were papped at a hotel in Hawaii sucking face no more than two or three weeks ago. To be fair, it couldve been a “we’re much better friends than lovers” kind of thing, which has happened to me and up until we called it quits, we were still pretty affectionate.

    Not surprising though, when you end up dating someone in your teens and then break up in your early 20s, you are two entirely different people when you started it and when you ended it.

  16. Iggles says:

    Wow, I’m actually sad that they broke up. I was hoping that they’d pulled a Nicole Richie/Joel Madden and shock people by actually staying together.

    That sad, gay rumors are strong likelihood…

  17. girl says:

    I don’t know why but I can hardly picture him using the term “bathe in p***y”. Maybe because I’ve only seen him in the HSM movies (thanks to my teenagers)? Weird.

    He is one good looking man. Just so pretty.

  18. elisa says:

    If they’ve been dating 4-5 years, and they’re 22-23 now, that’s basically all of college for most people. That’s pretty good for a relationship, actually. I believe that they just grew out of the relationship, no drama.

  19. mln76 says:

    Didn’t his career peak 2 or 3 years ago? No way he is going to break out of the pretty boy box. I think she is better off without being associated with him even though I’ll be forgetting her name as soon as I close this link.

  20. tango says:

    Gosh, rumour is he’s gay. And she refuses to face that fact. He, in order to look like he’s straight, has been hitting strip clubs lately and letting strippers grind on him & sleeping with some female skanks to up his straight cred. So he could be bi.

    But whatever, I wish both of them luck whatever they do next.

  21. Moreaces says:

    They are very young, and began dating very young, they should see other people. It would have been very odd if they got married, because of their age, I really did not think it would last, not that what I think matters, it just is

  22. I Choose Me says:

    Not every guy who’s ‘pretty’ and likes hair gel is gay ffs. God, I get so tired of the ‘he’s gay’ chorus. Now I’m well aware that there are beards in Hollywood but I find it hard to believe that younger women like Hudgens, Biel and Reese, would agree to be in a sham relationship for years, while not being able to have an actual relationship in the meantime except on the down low. And let’s suppose a starlet did agree to that then her secret significant other, would have to agree to be on the down low too. It just seems like such a bother to maintain and for what? The privilege of being known as someone’s girlfriend? Not much of a trade-off if you ask me.

  23. Cheyenne says:

    Did they ever date other people? Maybe they just outgrew or got tired of each other. If so, better now than later. they both look like two insubstantial airheads to me.

  24. PrettyTarheel says:

    She looks like she pulls an Olsen, saying “Prune” before every picture. Her lips have that pursed look…

  25. Jesus Christ Superstar says:

    Well, there goes her career.

  26. becky says:

    yeah i could believe he’s straight
    and he is cute!
    @judy2: thats hilarious

  27. Someone Else says:

    I think he’s pretty, and I think he’ll be around for awhile. He seems to be aligning himself with the right people.

    For the record, I don’t care if he’s gay (as he’s young enough to be my own son) however, he’s always super-pinged my gaydar.

    Sorry to those who disagree.

  28. lmp says:

    There is a god! Now he can marry me!

  29. Vi says:

    hmm i don’t think either of them are going anywhere big to be honest but i don’t doubt that it was a mutual ending. i mean 5 years at that age, it’s pretty normal to just grow up and grow apart.

  30. malachais says:

    I don’t believe this, just because this has come up before and has always been false. We’ll see – if it is true I also think zac did the dumping and wants to be single for awhile.

  31. lisa says:

    I guess they were both a bit too young to be so serious. They dated a long time. It ran it’s course and ended..

    Just like thousand upon thousands of other couples.

  32. Louise says:

    I wouldn’t be shocked if they got back together. I think when you date for so long when you’re young, you wonder what is out there. They seem pretty close and happy together.

  33. Cici says:

    Zac Efron is Gay, vanessa was a beard. Guess she got tired of living a fake relationship :D

  34. Camille says:

    I wonder if he will finally come out of the closet now.

    But really these 2 were going to break up eventually, they are just kids. It was inevitable, this is not a shock.

  35. Bitter fruit says:

    Oh so he’s upgrading the beard then?

  36. Lois says:

    Zac is so beautiful :)
    That’s all I have to say. :)

  37. moopsie says:

    he’s gonna come out soon…..

  38. Marjalane says:

    For whatever reason, I don’t get a gay vibe from him. It is hard to believe he’s only 23. seems like he’s been around forever.

  39. Iggles says:

    Crap. They’re reminding me of “It’s Over” by Jesse McCartney which makes me sad.

  40. chasingadalia says:

    I concur with #19.

    They were together about a quarter of their short lives. It happens. Celebs can have normal breakups, too.

  41. Brittney says:

    Isn’t it pretty well known in the industry that she was a beard? Maybe you prefer not to “out” people, but the speculation on whether either of them cheated just made me laugh… their relationship was a contract, no?

  42. simon jake says:

    ang gwapo zac i love u,

  43. lmp says:

    whats a beard?

  44. loopygorilla says:

    Im do him just for the taste it … yeah thats right im shameless bitches!

  45. Az says:

    I really want to say something snarky here but the truth is, I find Zac Efron to be absolutely charming and try as I might, I just can’t snark on him.

  46. belle Epoch says:

    #43 I guess you are serious, so I’ll answer your question.

    When a gay guy pretends to be dating or married to a woman – and she knows the story – she is referred to as his “beard.”

    If the woman genuinely does not know her partner is gay, then she is not a beard, just a sad fool.

  47. Hakura says:

    I’ve never been a fan, but I don’t get the gay feeling from him either. *shrugs*

    I’m impressed they lasted as long as they have. When they first started out, I thought it was a PR thing, to promote HSM. I wonder if this will be the same sort of thing between the ‘Twitard’ duo? I’m still not convinced their relationship is any more than Promotional.

  48. Ruby Red Lips2 says:

    There are so mnay rumours that Zac is gay…. so not surprised

  49. normades says:

    While I do believe Jake is Toothy, I don’t think Zac is gay. I think he really wants to make it so he doesn’t want to f it up with drugs or lots of women. And I actually liked him in 17 again.

  50. Candy says:

    This young man is pretty adorable and very down to earth and cool when I’ve seen him in interviews. Too cool for Vanessa I think. Poor girl. Young love sucks when it ends….I hope she doesn’t become a whore to show him what he’s missing.

  51. Sunshine says:

    Why do people always label good-looking young men gay? Some are, some aren’t. You can usually tell the ones who are. This one isn’t. Thank goodness. He and Vanessa sure were cute together, but alas, they are too young for such long-termness.

  52. fancyamazon says:

    @ I Choose Me

    Hear, Hear! Not everyone is secretly gay, it gets so tiresome.

  53. abel says:

    it’s about freakin’ time… maybe he’ll finally come out and date me :D

  54. Alexa says:

    He’s very pretty. There’s a family in my neighborhood and the father and his two sons all have that Zac Efron/sparkly-blue-eyed/pretty-boy-handsome thing going on. So cute!

  55. slymm27 says:

    so many pathetic people up in here. Rude and pathetic . Have you stopped for a second to listen to yourselves go on and on about gays, and gaydars and beards. ?? Sounds like an unrepentant bully. Its so hard for you to see people as people anymore. You just have to say something about them relating to sex. All pretty boys are gay, zack is pretty so he is gay. All men cheat, your husband is a man, so he cheats. I think i understand the logic now.

  56. C-DUB says:

    If these crazy kids can’t make it…who can?

  57. The Bobster says:

    Look for more Vadgenessa pictures to hit the web soon.

  58. Anon73 says:

    Efron screams gay, gay, gay to me. So never really thought this would last, given you know Vanessa is a woman. ; )

  59. JustBored says:

    Ohh, they were so cute together. Oh well, another one bites the dust.

  60. Jaye E says:

    ACK! Enough with the “gay” spec. He’s not gay until he comes out as gay.

  61. fwozbo says:

    Tony Curtis was a very handsome guy and had a similar look to Efron, and he wasn’t gay.

    • Crispy Creme says:

      @Fwozbo, EXACTLY. And let’s not forget French actor Alain Delon (known as the Ice Angel because of his blue-blue eyes). I swear Efron & Delon could be brothers (FINE ass brothers,too). Also Efron looks like a young Jared Leto & Jared is NOT gay. So just because a man is lovely in the face doesn’t mean he’s gay (Did you see Jared Leto in Requiem For A Dream??? God, he was GORGEOUS! Whew)! As for Tony Curtis, I never thought he was cute, though. Sorry. I have to look at some of his pics again to be sure. Ha ha! Now LEONARDO DICAPRIO, I think is GAY & sleeping with Martin Scorsese & if they make another film biopic together I’m going to SCREAM.
