The former High School Musical actress, Vanessa Hudgens, was spotted with NBA star Kyle Kuzma at a fine-dining Italian restaurant in Brooklyn recently, raising some questions about what is truly going on in the actress' love life. It was only a week ago that Hudgens and boyfriend of eight years, Austin Butler, called it quits due to the physical constraints of living on two different continents while each worked on their most recent respective projects. But what is really going on here and is there more than meets the eye?

For years and years, Hudgens and Butler looked to be that one inseparable couple that everyone strived to emulate. Their names were hardly ever in the headlines for anything other than new roles they were taking for television or films. Well, according to an interview with Hudgens, the long-distance aspects of working in two different parts of the world were enough to take a 'break'. And that's the interesting part here. According to the actress, this split would only be temporary and the two would see where things went after their projects had reached completion.

Whether Hudgens' dinner date with Kuzma means anything significant, we currently don't know. For most people, it takes some time to get back on the market, especially after relationships that have lasted for years. Well, apparently not for Hudgens. The details of the date were provided by TMZ, who shared that both Hudgens and Kuzma were getting quite comfortable together at a candle-lit and intimate dinner for two. Both Hudgens and Kuzma had smiles and laughs abounding as they shared a bottle of red wine during their meal.

Are Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler Going to Remain Broken Up?

If Hudgens decides to pursue spending more time with Kuzma, it changes the whole narrative for what could have been a reconciliation between herself and Butler after he was finished filming his latest project, which involved him taking on the role of Elvis Pressley in a film about the King of Rock n' Roll. It's interesting to note that perhaps the distance factor between the former couple wasn't the reason for the breakup, but I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Kuzma Has Dated, or Rumored to Have Dated, Other High-Profile Women

As for Kyle Kuzma, he has dated his fair share of high-profile women, or at least rumored to date, including the model and Instagram influencer, Kendall Jenner. Back in July, Kuzma was seen on a yacht with Jenner for some Fourth of July festivities and later, he was spotted at her house for a party.

As for the Hudgens and Butler situation, there's no way to tell if that is completely dead. We also don't know if there was anything particularly romantic about her date with Kuzma, although the pictures would say otherwise. This is simply a wait and see kind of ordeal.
