Whether or not him because the actor who performs Elvis in Baz Luhrmann’s 2022 movie Elvis or — like me — as the varsity hottie in each late 2000s kids’s TV present, that is Austin Butler.
Lately, a TikTok displaying pictures of Austin’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens and present girlfriend Kaia Gerber assembly for the primary time went viral. Now, you may be questioning why such a seemingly harmless and, TBH, random interplay would garner such a response. Nicely, permit me to offer you some backstory…
Austin and Vanessa met on the set of Excessive College Musical, and began courting a pair years later in 2011. They have been collectively for eight years and reportedly referred to as it quits in early 2020.
In late 2021, Austin and Kaia started sparking courting rumors, earlier than making issues official on the 2022 Met Gala.
Austin and Kaia have a ten yr age hole, as he’s presently 31 and she or he is 21. In that viral TikTok, some previous photos from the Excessive College Musical 2 purple carpet have been unearthed and…nicely…nothing illustrates simply how massive their age hole is than these pictures.
Pictured under is Austin’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa — who was 19 — assembly his now-girlfriend Kaia, who was simply 6 years previous on the time.
Like, let’s take a second to course of this. Kaia — a literal baby — who was in all probability as obsessive about Vanessa singing Breaking Free as I used to be in 2007, is being introduced out to satisfy Vanessa by her MOM — who, in fact, is Cindy Crawford — as a result of she’s too younger to be there alone!
Here is one other angle of them collectively, so you may actually soak in the truth that Kaia is presently simply two years older than Vanessa was in these pictures.
Hear, I’m not joking after I say my jaw dropped after I first noticed this video. And given the feedback on it, it looks like I am not alone in that.
