Rumours of the pair dating comes after it has been confirmed that Hudgens and her boyfriend of eight years, Austin Butler, are no longer together. They have split reportedly because of their busy schedules. They have been apart for long periods of time while working on different projects in different countries.

Hudgens and Butler split after having talked about taking their relationship to the next level. They had reportedly discussed engagement plans. As for Kuzma, he has previously been seen hanging out with Kendall Jenner and was rumoured to have dated Australian model Nicole Shiraz in 2019.
