A source explained that Hudgens still cares for Butler deeply and thought the best way to save their relationship was by letting him go.
“She was under the impression that this was temporary,” the insider told Radar. “She thought they would just be on a break and then he’d miss her and come back. But the more time passes, I think Vanessa is worried that he won’t.”
“I don’t think his focus is to be in a committed relationship at the moment,” the source added.
As Radar previously reported, Butler’s career caused the rift between them.
