Apparently we really can’t get our brains around the fact that Zac Efron and Michelle Rodriguez are dating, because we’re still busy spinning through possible reasons for that to be happening. The newest one? Zac is broke, and he’s using Michelle for her money. UH HUH.
According to Star, Zac has ‘partied through the bulk of his estimated $18 million fortune’, but his insatiable hunger for money and PARTY PARTY PARTY has not been sated, and he needs more. Thus, their recent vacation to Italy, where Michelle reportedly ‘picked up most of the tab’. (Impromptu dance parties don’t come cheap, my friends.) According to an ‘insider’:
“Zac has been pretty broke while waiting for his share of the profits from Neighbors to come through. Michelle, on the other hand, hoards her money.”
You guys. We have to stop this, we’re embarrassing ourselves. Zac is waiting for his salary for his last movie to come through? Where is it now? In a boat steaming its way here? I can’t imagine that Hollywood is still bouncing checks from movies that opened way back in March. But sure! I guess Zac should count himself lucky that Michelle fills her cheeks with gold bullion to last her through the cold cold winters between Fast and Furious films. What an intelligent little sugar mama.
Supposedly Michelle ‘has no qualms about shelling out the cash, [but] her friends are worried that she’s being played.’
“Michelle thinks Zac will pay her back as soon as his paycheck comes in, but everyone is convinced that he’ll drop her before then. He’s just living the luxurious life with her while he can.”
You guys, no! You’re driving yourselves crazy dreaming up scenarios where it makes sense for Michelle and Zac to be smooching on a yacht, but at some point we have to accept that it doesn’t make sense! Whether or not Zac is broke, it’s not about that, and it’s not about Michelle comforting him after his Vanessa Hudgens breakup, or Michelle trying to make Cara Delevingne jealous.
