It’s all over for Zac Efron and Vanessa Valladares.
Last week, we learned the former couple, who met in Byron Bay last year had gone their separate ways.
The exes were photographed together on multiple occasions during the pandemic, but it appears the relationship had run its course.
Here are all the details we know.
Why did Zac Efron and Vanessa Valladares break up?
Kyle Sandilands confirmed speculation Efron and Valladares split after “speaking with him yesterday.”
“I heard a rumour around that Netflix show they were going to do in Byron [the show Byron Baes], which was bulls–t, that Zac was trying to pull strings to get her on that show,” Sandilands said on live radio. “So that’s what I rang him about.”
“He was like ‘oh bro, it’s only recent, not like yesterday recent’ that they’ve gone their separate ways,” Sandilands said.
“No drama, but it’s done. He’s back to work, they spent a lot of time with each other when he wasn’t working. Then works comes back, and it kicks you straight back into reality.”
Shortly after, more details surrounding their split emerged.
“Zac is about to start a busy year of filming and wanted to make a clean break,” an insider told Us Weekly, noting the former couple had been living in a house in Byron Bay.
Efron is set to fly to Canada in May for a film adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Firestarter alongside Anne Hathaway. The move means Efron would no longer be paying for a house he isn’t living in which “wasn’t going to work for him”, the source said.
The source added Efron is “secretly relieved about this turn of events as he feels she would be a distraction to him during the filming of the intense drama.”
Another source told People the split occurred because “it just didn’t feel right to him anymore”.
