  • ZanessaNY

    Noooooooooooo!!! :(
    I did not see these coming. OMG, I hope they remain good friends… who knows down the line they could end up together. My heart is broken right now and in distress… they were like the “IT” couple in hollywood that remain standing coz evryone is breaking up… I cant still accept that they parted ways… I envy their relationship so much that I think of it as one of the IDEAL relationship in Hollywood and still is to me…. they will always zanessa to me… huhuhu!
    I wish them the best of luck for this big and hard decision they made in their relationship… May they remain friends and do good in their careers.
    I will never forget these couple who inspires me on how a relationship should be. I will miss them so much as a couple.
    All the fans who , it will take time to heal our broken hearts as well.
    huhuhuhuhuhuuuuuuuuuuuuuu :0(

  • Brittany

    @Lmao: NO!

  • Brittany

    @Elizabeth: Shut up! You are really rude!

  • Twilight Diaries Girl

    next couple (publicity stunt) to split is Robsten or maybe they have already

  • Sina

    Where did this came from? They seemed happy and looked kust as lovey dovey only 2 weeks ago?! And the pkc of zac?! Does someone who kust broke up with “the love of my life really feels like hanging out and smiling after such a break up?! To me its not a good sign tgat theirpublicist didnt confirm it falseness, it bothers me that there is no official statement yet :(
    Zanessa was the last couple where i thought, after brangelina, that this is one of the couple in hollywood who can tell their kids their cute lovestory.

  • Marieme

    Um…they’re kids! I don’t care how much money they make or the fact they played house and slept together. They were (are) very young and people move on, outgrow each other. At least the smart ones do. You don’t want to end up with your first love. Uh-uh. People in their 20′s morph into very different beings as they age – if they’re lucky.

  • Twilight Diaries Girl

    the next couple (be it may publicity stunt) to split or maybe they have already is Robsten

  • Chanon

    I’m calling bullshit on this. Besides, neither of them have even yet to confirmed it themselves.

    Zac and Vanessa just seem to belong together.

  • AddictedtoV

    OMG this is really so sad after 5 long years been together nah! i dont believe this maybe they’re taking breath for each other and soon be back together in each others arm!

    but whatever happens I’m behind with you Vanessa!

  • Jjmm



  • Maya

    THIS CANT BE!!!!

  • BOJI

    Whatever, they still have alot of love for each other. One must be blind to not see that, that video in Hawaii attests to it.

    Here’s what I’m thinking, they both know that their commitment to one another is in a way hampering their individual careers. Taking a break was a wise move indeed. They are still young and have so much to do and so much to achieve ahead. We mustn’t forget that they started dating as teens. I know some of you will compare your own childhood sweethearts and say if you can last , why can’t they. For one they are always in the public eye and they need the space in which to develop their individual careers. I do recall Vanessa did not go to Broadway but I suspect that Zac had something to do with it. Anyway, who is to say that they’ve broken up for good. They remain close is all I know and you don’t throw 5 yrs away into the bin. I think they’ll still be there for one another no matter what.
    So HAPPY 22ND BIRTHDAY, VANESSA. Here’s to a new chapter in your life. May it be filled with exciting new ventures and memorable moments.

  • babygirl

    this makes me sad. i love them together.

  • Allison

    Looking at that picture of Zac with Kellan Lutz it’s safe to say he has moved on to a big strong man.

  • florence

    Well this is no suprise, the latest photo’s of them in Hawaii Zac looked as bored as anything and you could clearly tell that he did’nt want to be there.

    Plus with all his comments on his CSC press your, especially the one about the relactionship ‘ serving me right now’ that was a clear indication that he was’nt ready to stay with Vanessa for much longer and was already on the lookout for someone new.

    idon’t think the break has anything to do with their careers as weahther they are together or not does not affect their movies and how well they do, that comes down to the acting and story of the film.

    No it’s plain and simple Zac wanted to be free to play the field with as many other women as he can, and by not being with Vanessa he can now do it in the open instead of sneaking around behind her back and doing it. He loves the women to much to stay withg one for to long and to give any commitment to.

    So I would say Vanessa that he has done you a big favour and you are now free to be with someone who is’nt a player and who is’nt afraid of the word ‘ Marriage’ like he is. He’s not going to get married at 30 or 40 he’ll be to busy bedding verything that moves fron now on.

  • Just Saying

    haha! That’s soooo awesome! I’ve been waiting for this!

  • jema

    I think that they are doing this for their careers. They are putting their careers right now as they priority. Vanessa has A LOT of movies coming this 2011 and so she won’t have enough time to hang out and be together with Zac. Same with Zac who is filming another movie. Somewhere down the road I know if they really are meant for each other then they will be together again but if now, then let us just be happy for both of them. It’s not like it’s the end of the world! People seriously need to grow up like how this two are growing up by putting their relationship on the line and focusing on their blooming careers. Good luck and God Bless. Can’t wait for Vanessa’s movies!!!! Though i still have a doubt if this is true or now, oh well, life is life, whatever happens either you accept it or look for a door way out.

  • nigiyaka

    Florence, I think you are right but yeah…

  • =(

    This is really sad, but i can understand it. This year I also broke up with my highschool sweetheart we were together 4 years and I was devastated. Of course we arent Zac and Vanessa but I always felt we were a bit related to them because my ex is a model and he gets a lot of girl’s attention. What I can say about this couple is that the relationship took course to a point where their interests became different from each other’s. We women with time want stability, we fall in love of a person’s soul we dont care if he gets old bald or fat. But men usually start feeling trapped a bit, they just want to live and most of them end settling down at their 40′s. Plus if you get that much of females attention it makes a bit easy to move on. Of course Vanessa also gets men’s attention but is just different.

    Anyway I wish them the best for both of them but what I can assure is that is VERY HARD to forget such a great relationship, Zac and Vanessa will miss each other so much at first… but time makes everything get better.

  • Me Myself And I

    goog bay and good luck

  • hjj

    i’m so bummed by those people who are happy about someone’s breakup, hmm…… say someone says”yesyesyes!!! you guys finally broke up” after you have a breakup…. you would be so happy!!
    yea right

  • Jen

    awww Now Zac can finally get a boyfriend. Well, a public one, that is. *sits and waits*

  • Zukayi

    …they were too young anyway to have a serious relationship, I wish both of the all the best. And i also think Vanessa dumped him, I dont think Zac dumped her.

  • Kaz simply amazing ! Pretty!!!!!!!

    Hollywood alwayes like this split
    get a life loser jack and venessa

  • bona

    oh my god……….. I don’t belive it……….

  • florence

    I recjkon give it a few months if that and you will see Zac to be the first one to be seen out and about with a new arm candy, and then he be all over her and saying how much he loves her. He has never liked wearing the kuppio ring and now he can do so without it causing speculation as to wheather or not he’s with Vanessa

  • moe

  • http://Tj Slig^_^

    Go go go cry

  • monnyy

    it definately can’t be true ! they were great together , how can they be splitting up ? i wish that isn’t true .

  • LiveinLove

    ^this is the sweetest video of them, telling their love story
    and the clips, the song its so beautiful. they had a real love for sure, a sweet young romance. just like the notebook kind.

    this video really sums this whole thing up, very sad it makes you want to cry :’(

    maybe this is just a break but who knows.

    we will miss their sweetness and realness!

  • jenny

    NOOOOOOOOOOOO this cant be true i loved zanessa!!!!!!!!!

  • Talia

    I have to say I didn’t see it coming, I wish them both luck for the futur !
    But I don’t understand people who say you can stay forever with your first love or they are too young to be in a serious relationship … There are plenty of couple like that, who began their relationship in highschool and decades after are still together ! But I guess this is an utopie for Hollywooders !
