It's sounding like Zac Efron is indeed single again. 

After The Daily Telegraph reported that the Baywatch star and Australian model Vanessa Valladares have split up after less than a year together, radio personality Kyle Sandilands claimed on his show that he had recently spoken with Zac, who confirmed the split. 

"It's not just The Daily Telegraph. I can also confirm after speaking with him yesterday," Kyle said this week on Sydney-based radio program The Kyle and Jackie O Show. "It's only recent, but not like yesterday recent. But they've gone their separate ways."

Kyle, who has previously shared updates about Zac and Vanessa's relationship with listeners, added, "[There was] no drama, but it's done."

E! News has reached out to Zac's rep for comment and has not heard back. 

As recently as earlier this month, the relationship between the 32-year-old actor and Vanessa, 25, seemed to be going strong. The couple had been spending time at his rental home in Australia since meeting in the summer of 2020.

"He's very happy being with Vanessa and living in Australia," an insider close to the star told E! News on Thursday, April 1. "It's changed his life for the better."

Zac Efron's Relationship History

The source continued, "They started dating in July and have been together since. They love to travel locally and are very adventurous. They love skiing, surfing and hanging out with both his and her friends. They spend a lot of time outdoors just chilling. She quit her job so she can have the flexibility to travel with him. They are on the same page with that, and it's working out for them."

On March 30, the couple was photographed hiking with pals in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales.

Last month, Zac took to Instagram to announce he's working on the upcoming second season of the unscripted travel series Down to Earth with Zac Efron. He included photos of himself interacting with wildlife Down Under.

In December 2020, as the relationship continued heating up, the Hairspray star put his Hollywood Hills mansion on the market for $5.9 million. The price was dropped to $5.5 million in March 2021.

Neither he nor Vanessa have ever commented publicly about their romance.
