2020's first big celeb break up is here and it's definitely not one we saw coming.

After more than 8 years of dating, Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler have split, according to PEOPLE.

A source has also reached out to Us Weekly saying "Vanessa has been telling those close to her about the breakup," though she's yet to share the news publicly.

Us Weekly went on to say the pair may have have split up some time ago as it looked like Hudgens and Butler spent the Summer holiday apart. Also, the last time Vanessa posted a photo with her boyf (or now ex-boyf) was all the way back on Halloween. 

However there's still some hope that the pair may still together.

Just last week, during an interview with Cosmo UK, Hudgens' spoke about how hard it can be doing long distance at times but said they "make it work".

"It's eight years this year – FaceTime, good communication, respect and trust [are what keep us going]," the former High School Musical star and current Netflix Christmas queen said. "The longest we've been apart was four months. It sucks! You start hating hearing yourself say 'I miss you.' But if it's your person, you make it work."

Looks like we'll have to sit her patiently waiting for Hudgens or Butler to comment on whether or not the reports are true but we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
