The rumors are swirling about a possible romance between Zac Efron and Olympic swimmer Sarah Bro. This past weekend, cameras caught the pair together at the UFC 235 fight in Las Vegas, and eyewitnesses say they were “having a great time.”
“Zac was approached by multiple fans, and Sarah was very patient as Zac spoke to everyone who approached him,” the source told E! News.
The duo did not show any public displays of affection, but they did leave the arena together when the fight ended. According to Page Six, some fans noticed that on the same night, both Efron and Bro attended the Los Angeles Kings hockey game, but it’s not clear if they were together.
The sighting of Efron and Bro comes amid rumors that something was brewing between Efron and Selena Gomez. The former Disney stars sparked dating rumors when he followed her on Instagram a few weeks ago, but their friends didn’t seem to be on board with the idea.
“A lot of people think their chemistry is a recipe for disaster,” a source told Radar Online last month. “Both of them tend to go off the rails when they’re not living a fully focused, hyper-regimented lifestyle with a team of helpers keeping them on track.”
Apparently, the concern is over the fact that both Efron and Gomez have been to rehab, Efron for drug abuse and Gomez for mental health issues. Both stars have been open about their respective problems, with Efron saying that he got to the point where he was more focused on going out on the weekends and letting loose, instead of working. The Baywatch star says that he never again wants to take something from the outside to make him feel good and comfortable.
While dealing with her most recent issues, Gomez took a break from social media and has been spending time with friends and family since leaving treatment.Despite their troubles, many fans have been shipping the couple hard online, and the insider says that the two are enjoying their reconnection, but there is no pressure for things to get romantic. Zac Efron and Selena Gomez worked together back in 2015 on the set of the movie Neighbors.
