crazy fan girls rejoice: whatever it was, is over  
This is a personal but sort of major thing so, from US Weekly:
Zac Efron and Lily Collins' spring fling is over.

After just three months together, The Lucky One actor, 24, and the Mirror Mirror actress, 23, have split, multiple insiders confirm to Us Weekly exclusively.

"They're no longer together. They were never serious, though; it was just a casual thing and it fizzled," one insider explains. "They were never in the same place at the same time."

A second source adds: "Zac was never very serious about her. He didn't talk about her to friends."

The stars were first spotted holding hands during a friend's birthday dinner at L.A. eatery STK February 8. After that, the low-key stars -- who have been photographed together only once -- only grew further apart.

"It's true that their schedules are crazy right now, which isn't conducive to a relationship being easy," a pal tells Us.

Um, my (somewhat more informed) commentary: Yes, they were dating... it was casual, very casual. Yes their schedules are crazy. They do have mutual friends so I don't really think he didn't talk about her ever, plus I wouldn't know what I know without chatty friends so there's that. Anyway. Believe whatever you want to believe, I guess. Though, if they were aiming for PR exposure, they didn't hardly even try.

Though, imo, this breakup announcement is way overkill, and it makes the whole thing come off more fake than it was. But I can see that if this is over and they are moving on to some other more public or exclusive relationship (e.g. she's rumored to be dating Chord Overstreet though idk that for sure), they may have wanted to just make sure this was closed off, press-wise. Still seems like too much to me, but whatevs.

I'm leaving comments open for now. If it gets mean or too much, I'll close them.

I didn't even know they were dating. I only hoped because I thought it made Zac happy.

I love how something that was never really confirmed (they were photographed together what, three times tops...) gets a "breakup" announcement in US Weekly. I just have to laugh.

I've always wondered who these "insiders" are in these articles about him...his team, his friends, random people? Just always been curious

technically i could be an insider on this cause i had the same details awhile ago (though it hadn't ended yet), but i'd never ofc, lol. my information comes from people who know zac and/or lily and/or hang with that whole circle of people. yk i've made a lot of friends in interesting places doing this for so long.

sry this is a rant and not really directed at you or anyone in particular but i'm rambling and starving which is never a good combo, lol... but anyway...

it kills me how many fakers there are out there, acting like they know stuff when they really don't. and it also kills me how people eat it up. and it kills me further, lol, when they question me (directly or, even more cowardly, indirectly/passive-aggressively) without being themselves trustworthy. i hope people trust me because i've earned it and know i wouldn't say anything unless i had good reason to trust my sources (not that i can't admit there are some possibilities for misinformation, it's never intentional though). so hopefully that sets me apart from all those people.

anyway /rant lol

Girl your reputation in the fandom/on the internet is based on the fact that you're trustworthy. I have never ever seen a single bad thing said about you (not that I've looked aggressively...you know what I mean) so don't stress about it. Anyone with brains or who is a real fan knows you're legit. :)

This probably doesn't mean much coming from me, but you, whoever runs @ZacEfron_News, and Kathryn from Zefron are most trusted people in the fan base.
The Writers Denmusewriter on June 12th, 2012 05:40 am (UTC)
I'd trust you over any other source tbh because you've proven yourself to be trustworthy and reliable. I was more so wondering who gets the stuff to US Weekly and the other people who end up initially reporting it.

I too am so annoyed but the people who claim to know things but really don't know anything and the people who eat it up. It causes WAY too much unnecessary drama lol.

Depends on what the story is, how it's written and esp which publication it is in/who wrote it. Many tabloid stories are just made up by the publication's writers or a fake source, some are "passed on" by people associated with the celeb like "friends," friends of friends, acquaintances, business associates or random observers, and some are coming from the celebs' reps. People eg is famous for mostly printing stories coming from or been approved of by publicists (or when they have very reliable sources). They are not infallible but they have few complete bullshit stories (except if it's bullshit the publicist wants to tell).

This one clearly looks like it's coming from one or both of their reps.

Someone wants something out of this. Otherwise, why announce the end of a few casual dates as an official "breakup"? Is it really a breakup when two people simply stop going out together?
Sapphirasapphia on June 12th, 2012 08:02 am (UTC)
I also think you're the most reliable source of information about Zac. With respect, love and criticism - all in equal measure. I'm always interested in your comments and opinions. And I'm glad that I found your blog on the Internet. :)

And really, really annoying when some people or sites give out the gossip for reality, and other people eat it, and judge what they do not know. That would be funny if it were not so insulting.

If it matters, I trust you.

i kind of like them together, maybe they can figure it out :)

anxious to see if we see a new lady friend in zachary's life soon
abigail80831abigail80831 on June 12th, 2012 03:00 am (UTC)
I find it funny something that was never even confirmed makes news like this. Since when is going on a few "dates" (if you want to call them that) mean all of a sudden they were dating?

Whatever, I hope Zac finds someone who makes him happy one day. Thats all I care about. :)

lol so anticlimactic. tbh I like him single, without all the hoop da la and will enjoy it until he finds someone serious. :)

i wish he was more of an irl troll and would screw with crazy fans' people's heads purposefully re: his dating life.

Man, the potential for that would be epic.
butterflybee260butterflybee260 on June 12th, 2012 04:26 am (UTC)

I do too sometimes but then I think it would get old really fast lol
countessm3countessm3 on June 12th, 2012 10:56 am (UTC)
At work I like to spread false rumors about myself and see if they come back to me. It gives people someone to talk about, as that seems to a requirement to a great many people.

This wouldn't work for Zac because it would blow up in his face. What would be funny is if he walked down the street holding both a boy and a girl's hand. I would lmao.
annabelle83 on June 12th, 2012 03:57 am (UTC)
Oh well, I hoped they'd make it only to make some people stop screaming PR bullshit.

I'm really surprised with this article. They were never official. Most people never heard of them dating, and even those who heard about it already forgot. No need to "confirm" they've split.

This article makes Zac look bad, which makes me wonder if it was planted by Lily's people or her friends. They could've just said they remain friends etc. without quoting something like "Zac was never very serious about her. He didn't talk about her to friends."
abigail80831abigail80831 on June 12th, 2012 06:10 am (UTC)
I found that line funny. For real, they "dated" for 3 months. A. just because he didn't talk about her to his friends doesn't really mean anything and B. who gets "serious" after dating someone for 3 months. I mean it can happen but it isn't very likely.
annabelle83 on June 12th, 2012 11:38 am (UTC)
And it was the worst time for them to start a relationship. Zac had to do international promos for The Lorax and The Lucky One back to back, and Lily had Mirror Mirror promos and a new movie(with Jennifer Connelly) to shoot at the same time. They probably knew it would be impossible to develop into a serious relationship at the moment.

Zac is going to start filming This Is Where I Leave You soon, and possibly Townies as well. While I hope Zac can have a stable relationship soon, if it interferes with his career, I'd rather hope he stays single forever. lol

Even Though It was Never confirmed They where dating I had this feeling something was going on between Them But They looked cute together. But sometimes if it's not meant to be it's Not Meant to be. One of these days he will Find the One Girl to be with Forever.
kleth on June 12th, 2012 06:43 pm (UTC)
"One of these days he will Find the One Girl to be with Forever"

Not unless he starts dating outside the industry.
wattlebrook on June 12th, 2012 10:49 am (UTC)
During an interview promoting TLO (maybe it was on this site, can't remember), the interviewer was being a bit cutesy and asked Zac what sort of music he liked to play background-wise on a romantic date. Zac jokingly threw out the name Phil Collins (Lily's father). At that stage I thought they were sort of dating, and was this some kind of confirmation? But thinking about it now, I think it was already over by then because what guy would play his date's father's music during a romantic date? Mood killer imo!

Maybe Zac isn't ready for another serious relationship just yet. He had such a bad experience with the press when he was with V that it might be a case of once bitten, twice shy.
countessm3countessm3 on June 12th, 2012 10:58 am (UTC)
See, I think he's a free bird - and free birds are most beautiful when they are free, and not when they are locked in cages.
annabelle83 on June 12th, 2012 11:56 am (UTC)
I saw Lily's Access Hollywood interview when she was there to talk about Mirror Mirror. Billy Bush and Kit Hoover slyly asked her if it's true she's dating someone..(they never mentioned Zac's name) and she said OMG and became quiet. They waited for her answer and she bashfully said "I'm having fun." They giggled all together and it seemed they understood her answer as a passive confirmation. They pushed for more detailed answer, but Lily kept saying she was having fun.

So I was like, they are indeed dating! But other than that interview, I don't think Lily has said anything about Zac. I regularly search for his name on the web for news about him, but I never found any article where she commented on him.

By the way, I agree that he may never have a public relationship again.
kleth on June 12th, 2012 06:45 pm (UTC)
"Zac jokingly threw out the name Phil Collins (Lily's father)"

Which just shows how really funny Zac can be.
Emily SwanEmily Swan on June 12th, 2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
OK, since you're talking here about being a reliable source - how come there is no info on how Zac&Vanessa ended things? Was there someone else or what was the reason for the break up?
hunny miss (aka lets fead him to the gators)ehs_wildcats on June 12th, 2012 06:54 pm (UTC)
For me, given how serious their relationship was and also considering the source of my info, I think it would be hurtful and a violation of trust to bandy about the details. It is private and I respect that. I can say that almost, if not all the speculation I've seen on why it ended (i.e. cheating, etc) is not why they broke up to the best of my knowledge.
