Zac Efron and his girlfriend Vanessa Valladares have broken up, according to a friend of the actor.

KIIS FM radio star Kyle Sandilands, who has been friends with Efron for years, said on The Kyle and Jackie O Radio Show on Wednesday (21 April): “It’s not a rumour, it’s true. It’s only recent, but not like yesterday recent, but they’ve gone their separate ways.”

He added that there was “no drama” behind the break-up, explaining: “They spent a lot of time with each other when he wasn’t working, lunching and living in the mansions on the beach – it’s a fabulous life.

“And then work comes back and kicks you straight back into reality, so it’s a shame.”

Efron had been dating the Australian model for 10 months. They met last summer when Valladares was a waitress at the Byron Bay General Store.

Valladares reportedly quit her job and travelled around the country with Efron. She also appeared on his Netflix series Down To Earth with Zac Efron.

The Independent has contacted Efron’s representatives for comment.

Efron can next be seen in the thriller Gold, which follows two men as they discover the biggest gold nugget ever found and try to figure out a way to excavate it. It also stars the Australian actor Anthony Hayes.
