- Vanessa Hudgens and Lakers player Kyle Kuzma aren't seriously dating and he's just "a great distraction for her right now."
- Vanessa and her ex-boyfriend Austin Butler recently split up after nine years together.
Wondering what's going on between Vanessa Hudgens and Kyle Kuzma? Apparently nothing major. "They totally hit it off and are having a lot of fun, but it's nothing serious," a source tells E! News. "She's enjoying his company and it's a great distraction for her right now. They talk often and have plans to see each other again, but she doesn't want to date him."
Meanwhile, another source (wow, so many sources, so little time) confirmed that Vanessa is "just having fun" following her split with long-time boyfriend Austin Butler: "She wants to get back out there. She's getting to know Kyle and so far she likes what she sees. He's treating her very well and is a big flirt. It's exciting and new."
Apparently Vanessa was introduced to Kyle through mutual friends and "knew people in his circle" because she frequently attends basketball games. "Vanessa has always been a Lakers fan and loves going to games," the source says. "Their schedules have lined up in New York and the timing was right. She hopes it continues back in L.A."
As a reminder, Vanessa and Austin split after nine freakin' years of dating, with a source previously telling E! News, "They’re just shooting on two different continents and it’s a matter of distance. There is no bad blood at all, and they have a lot of respect for each other."
