The High School Musical star, Vanessa Hudgens, recently broke up with her long-time boyfriend, Austin Butler, after eight years together. At one point, they were the epitome of the perfect couple, rarely ever being in the news for anything other than either of them accepting a new acting role.
Well, unfortunately, that romance would not last, as the two called it quits, at least temporarily, due to the distance between them. Hudgens was working on a project in North America, while Butler was in Europe. That’s the reason we were told, but perhaps there’s something more to it? Hudgens’ latest antics might be pointing to that.
Despite their breakup, Hudgens claims that she still has an amicable relationship with Butler and that there are no hard feelings on either side. Is that really the case, though, especially with how Hudgens has been acting lately?
For starters, not even a few weeks after the split from Butler, Hudgens was seen on a romantic date with NBA star, Kyle Kuzma. TMZ was there to spot the two enjoying an intimate experience. “Vanessa and Kyle look like they’re enjoying each other’s company… smiling and laughing over a bottle of red wine,” the outlet revealed. “It’s a super-intimate setting too, with the small table and all.”
While it seems that the intimate dinner date Hudgens had with Kuzma might have been a little fling in the wake of her breakup with Butler, other signs point to the actress attempting to make her ex-boyfriend jealous, including posting sensuous ‘thirst trap’ pictures to social media.
Over the last several weeks, Hudgens has been starting a tradition known as ‘Thirsty Thursday’ where she shares revealing photos of herself to Instagram. One particular picture showed her revealing a sunflower tattoo the actress got right next to her breast. The caption read, “And to conclude our #thirstythursday Hahahahaha ? @drag_ink @bangbangnyc.”
Just the next week after revealing her new tattoo, the High School Musical star posted another series of ‘Thirsty Thursday’ photos. This time, though, Hudgens was adorned in a lace top falling down at the shoulders and black underwear while she lied face-down, looking seductively at the camera. The photo came alongside the caption, “That details shoot tho. #thirstythursday ?.”
Yet another photo in the weekly installment showed Hudgens in the same clothing, but standing in the rain next to a pool. “It was obviously raining this day and I stood under the drip coming off the roof. Freezing. But made a great pic lol #thirstythursday,” she wrote along with the photo.
Whether or not, Hudgens is trying to make her former boyfriend jealous, we don’t know. What we do know is that something is going on. Perhaps, being single after so many years has led the actress to experiment with a little freedom that she hasn’t had for quite some time.
Either way, there aren’t many people complaining on social media after Hudgens had taken on a more conservative approach over the last several years while she was locked down. ‘Thirsty Thursday’ can’t come any sooner.
