Thanks to Ashley Tisdale, fans are really convinced that there is no bad blood between Austin Butler and Vanessa Hudgens after their breakup. On Saturday, February first The Carrie Diaries star made his return to social media following his heartbreaking split from Vanessa. Austin showed off an editorial photo of himself wearing Prada and shortly after he posted the picture, his ex’s BFF, Ashley, took to the comments section. She left multiple fire emojis under the snap.
This social media interaction came just over a week after Ashley gave Austin a shout out on her Instagram Stories. On January 20, 2020 the High School Musical alum told followers she was a “proud friend” after the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood actor was mentioned in Brad Pitt‘s SAG Awards acceptance speech the night before.
“That moment when Brad Pitt is accepting his award and mentions your friend Austin Butler,” Ashley wrote after the Hollywood legend accepted the Best Supporting Actor in a Movie award on January 19, 2020. “I’m like I’ve known him since he was 15! Proud friend.”
Fans are totally shook over these Instagram comments because Ashley and Vanessa have been best friend goals since before they shared the screen on Disney Channel together. Some people found it weird that she would be supporting her bestie’s ex. For those who missed it, an insider confirmed to Us Weekly on January 14, 2020, that Vanessa had split from her boyfriend Austin after almost nine years together.
“Vanessa and Austin are officially broken up, and Vanessa has been telling those close to her about their breakup,” the source revealed at the time.
According to an E! News report published after the news of Vanessa and Austin’s breakup hit the web, “There is no bad blood at all, and they have a lot of respect for each other.”
So, it seems to be totally fine that Ashley has continued to support Austin’s successful acting career even he and Vanessa split.
