Sadly? But it’s true. Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have gone their separate ways. Sources confirmed that the duo, who met on the High School Musical set in 2005 and started dating shortly after that, have broken up but remain close friends. “They’re still great friends and really close,” sources tell JustJaredJr.com. Zac and Vanessa were spotted only two weeks before in Hawaii, celebrating Thanksgiving together.
