Let’s be clear: we don’t believe this. We refuse to believe this. We just can’t believe this. But according to Marc Malkin of E! Online, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are no longer an item. “It’s nothing dramatic,” says Lamestain Insider No. 1. “There’s no third party involved.” No! No! No! You mean to tell us that these two could make it through five years, three High School Musical movies and a nude photo scandal…only to break up out of boredom? Their boringness is what made them great! And how could you break this scoop only a day before Vanessa’s 22nd birthday! Shame on you, Malkin!
“They were together for so long,” confirmed Lamestain Insider No. 2. “It just ran its course.” No, you just ran your course! Some would say it’s totally understandable for two famous, insanely attractive young people who started dating in their teens to break up after five years. Some would even say it’s a miracle they lasted as long as they did. But until Zac or Vanessa confirm the story themselves, we’re going to hold out hope that this all some horrible, horrible joke. The world needs heroes!
