If you're still weeping over Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler's sudden breakup, you have come to the right place. And if you're a Zac Efron and Vanessa (Zanessa) shipper, sorry, but you are NOT welcome—this is a safe space for fans of this former relationship to grieve, thank you very much. Now that that's out of the way, I'm here to deliver more heartbreaking news about Vanessa and Austin's split. Brace yourselves.
According to a People source, Vanessa and Austin were thinking of tying the knot. They wanted to get married, you guys. "They had talked about an engagement before they split up," the source said. Please give me a moment, I need to wipe away the tears from my keyboard.
If you're wondering why Vanessa and Austin broke up in the first place, distance and mismatched schedules played a major factor. Their "busy work schedules and travel definitely put a strain on the relationship," People's source added, while E! attributed it to filming. "They're just shooting on two different continents and it's a matter of distance," a source told E! News. "They have a lot of respect for each other."
As depressing as it is to hear that Vanessa and Austin wanted to get engaged, there is some hope that they get back together in the future. There was apparently "no bad blood" in their split, and they're "going to see what happens," a second source told E!, adding that Vanessa and Austin "have such a history and deep connection, they could find their way back to one another."
Fingers crossed that things work out for them.
