Rumours started when the pair attended a few of the same events together, however things seemed to have fizzled out after a few months.

They reignited romance rumours in late 2019, with a source telling Us Weekly in January 2020 that "they are in a serious relationship and in love," however, sixth months later he began dating Vanessa.

In February 2019, fans speculated that Hollywood actor Zac Efron was dating pop sensation Selena Gomez after he followed the 'Rare' songstress on Instagram (because that means you're in a relationship, right??).

However, a source told Us Weekly: “Selena is focusing on her mental health and has been reading, exercising, eating well and spending time with her close friends and family.

“She isn’t necessarily looking to date right now,” they added.

Just a couple of days later, Zac posted another pic of Rebecca and wrote: "I finally looked" with a series of heart-eye Emojis.

The pair never confirmed or denied their alleged romance.

However, Daddario dismissed the claims, stating: "I don't know that I started it.

"We work together closely; he's my love interest in the film. I understand why people would go crazy over something like that, but Zac and I are very good friends."

Zac and Lily were first romantically linked way back in 2013 when they were apparently spotted holding hands in Disneyland, but they never addressed rumours of their relationship.

The pair reportedly rekindled their flame while working on Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile together, but it wasn't meant to be.

However, the pair only dated for a short three months, with a source telling Us Weekly at the time: "They're no longer together.

“They were never serious, though; it was just a casual thing and it fizzled. They were never in the same place at the same time."
