When Lindsay and her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama broke up in 2004, she went off the deep end — and now we’re worried that you Vanessa, have unmoored after splitting from your 5 -year ‘rock’ Zac Efron, and that you’re in danger of following in Lilo’s footsteps!
From revealing outfits, to late night partying — Lindsay Lohan and Vanessa Hudgens have a lot in common. When Vanessa landed in Cannes wearing booty shorts and thigh-highs it screamed Lindsay. Not to mention, Vanessa has become a fixture on the LA party scene since her split from longtime boyfriend Zac Efron. This is almost exactly what happened when Lindsay and her ex-boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama split in 2004 … and Vanessa, we’re worried about you!
When Lindsay and Wilmer ended their relationship, Lindsay immediately began partying — and hard. She also decided to stop dating … well stop dating men at least. After being linked to men like Colin Farrell in 2007 and briefly dating restaurant owner Harry Morton, Lindsay began her tumultuous relationship with deejay Samantha Ronson in 2008. But after public fights and Twitter wars, the couple had a very public split in 2009. Lindsay was quoted describing her life as “absolute hell” and was spotted chugging a bottle of vodka at a Hollywood club right in front of her mom Dina Lohan. Lindsay checked into rehab twice in 2007 and had two DUI’s that same year.
Now switch gears and take a look at Vanessa’s past five months. Immediately following Vanessa’s breakup from Zac in December 2010, they tried “friends with benefits.” When that didn’t work, Vanessa was spotted partying on multiple occasions in West Hollywood. Then she hit up Vegas for her 22nd birthday bash and now with is hanging out with a drink in hand in Cannes.
We also know she’s getting hot and heavy with her Journey 2: The Mysterious Island co-star, Josh Hutcherson. Although we’re glad Vanessa has found romance again, we’re not sure that this rebound relationship makes her feel as safe and secure as her longtime love, Zac.
Speaking of Cannes, it appears nothing good can happen for party girls in the French Riviera town. In 2010 Lilo conveniently misplaced her passport which kept her from getting back to LA for a scheduled DUI hearing. Missing that court date ultimately led to jail time and her continuing troubles with the law.
We can’t mention Disney relationships like Zac and Vanessa who met on the set of High School Musical in 2004, without noting Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. When Brit and Justin had their emotional and public split in 2002, Britney very publicly went off the deep end! She took a six month break from music, married her childhood friend Jason Alexander in Vegas for 55 hours, and then eventually had one of the biggest celebrity meltdowns in history. After two failed marriages, shaving her head, and losing control of her finances — the megastar appears to be getting back to her old self. But it took nine years!
Do you think Vanessa’s announcement that she’s moving to New York and her hard partying ways are fueled because of her insecurity after her breakup from Zac? Hopefully Vanessa can take a lesson from previous fallen starlets like Lindsay and Britney and turn this around!
