High School Musical’s Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens Split (VIDEO)

Preteen Twitter accounts are burning up on news that Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens have called it quits.

A friend of the couple tells E! Online that the breakup was mutual, explaining that they were together for so long, “It just ran its course.”
