Vanessa Hudgens & Austin Butler Breakup News “Leaked” Same Day As Vanessa’s Movie Premiere
Either tonight’s premiere is about to be really crappy for Vanessa Hudgens or the star’s agents planned this. US Weekly reported that credible insiders have confirmed the split between the former High School Musical star and her boyfriend of nine years, Austin Butler, have broken up. You can call us conspiracy theorists, but something is telling us these “sources” knew that Vanessa’s movie Bad Boys For Life could use some free press.
The movie, which premieres in LA tonight, January 14th, has its official release date on January 17 and is the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise. Last month, Vanessa Hudgens‘s costar Charles Melton‘s split with Riverdale star Camila Mendes also got leaked to the press. Coincidentally, his Instagram Stories were full of Bad Boys For Life promotional posters that day — and he still hasn’t spoken out about the reports.
If these reports are accurate, Vanessa and Austin split some time between Halloween and Vanessa’s birthday on December 14th after nine years together.
Fans initially started speculating about the split on Vanessa’s birthday. Austin usually posted a photo of his beloved with a poem, but last year, he was silent on her b-day. When Vanessa spent Christmas without him, it became pretty obvious that the two were taking some time apart. So, the conspiracy theory is that while this REPORT is for Bad Boys For Life publicity, the split most certainly is not.
Austin and Vanessa both have a lot going on right now. Austin was in the Oscar-nominated Once Upon A Time In Hollywood in 2019 and has been cast to play Elvis Presley in a biopic. Vanessa, for her part, filmed the sequel to Netflix’s The Princess Switch in December, had Christmas Knight premiere at the same time, and filmed the aforementioned Bad Boys for Life. Maybe this breakup is just temporary. We really thought these two were soulmates.
