It seems that Vanessa Hudgens is ready for the next chapter in her life… a brand new romance! The Princess Switch star was spotted in Los Angeles with a new guy on November 21, 2020, with the rumors that she officially moved away from ex-boyfriend Austin Butler. The longtime couple had been together for almost nine years before calling it quits in January 2020.
Although Vanessa Hudgens and Butcher never publicly addressed their split, sources told us weekly: “Vanessa and Austin Butler officially split up, and Vanessa Hudgens tells her loved ones about their separation.
At the time, an insider told us that Vanessa and Austin’s relationship was slowly fading away – it was one of those things that you don’t even realize is happening. They added, “It’s not easy to break up, but she’s not someone to sit and mop. She lives it out and has fun. She seems really happy and excited about life, frankly.”
Later that month, Vanessa Hudgens was photographed with NBA player Kyle Kuzma. However, any potential romance seems to be bubbling fast, as the actress seemingly confirmed that she was single in February 2020 when she shared a message about keeping herself on Valentine’s Day.
Vanessa Went On A Romantic Date Night
Vanessa Hudgens teased fans for the first time about a potential new love in her life on 21 November 2020, sharing an Instagram post about going on a “date night” with a mysterious man. It turns out, the lucky guy is MLB star Cole Tucker, who plays for the Pittsburgh Pirates, as per People. As seen in photos published by the Daily Mail, the Disney Channel alum looked absolutely beaten by Tucker during a night out together in Los Angeles. The couple, who were all smiling, were photographed holding their hands and cuddling while waiting for their car with a servant outside a restaurant.
Hudgen’s new romance comes less than a week after telling Entertainment Tonight exactly what she’s looking for in her next partner. “Your girl is open,” she explained. “I feel like at the end of the day, it’s just about having the same basic principles and wanting the same things. “She added, “I’m not picky, really. Like, I know what I want and I’m like, if someone comes into the picture and can give me all those things, that’s great”.
Hudgens also said that she doesn’t care if her next boyfriend is in the public eye. In fact, she prefers it when he’s not. As for her future, the actress also talked about women’s health in 2018: “I want to get married, travel, and then have children – probably in my late 30s.
