Why did Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler break up?

In January 2020, it was revealed Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler went their separate ways.

The reason for their split was attributed to their busy schedules filming for different projects.

At the time, Vanessa was away in Scotland shooting for The Princess Switch sequel and Austin was in Australia filming for Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis.

At the time, an insider told 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.”

Weeks prior, Vanessa spoke about the long-distance aspect of their relationship to Cosmopolitan and said: “The longest we’ve been apart was four months. It sucks!

“You start hating hearing yourself say ‘I miss you,’ but if it’s your person, you make it work.”

Since calling it quits, both parties have moved on to different relationships.

By the end of 2020, Vanessa started dating MLB player Cole Tucker.

On February 2, 2023, it was revealed she and Cole became engaged sometime toward the end of 2022.

In December 2021, Austin entered a romance with American Horror Story alum Kaia Gerber.
