In the months that followed, the aspiring model was continuously photographed by the actor’s side as the duo travelled around Australia while he worked on projects including the movie Gold, which was shot in Adelaide, and the Netflix documentary series Down to Earth with Zac Efron.
Last October, Valladares threw the Greatest Showman star a surprise birthday bash in Byron. The couple were joined by guests including KIIS FM radio star Kyle Sandilands, tennis champion Pat Rafter and members of the Hemsworth family.
The pair also spent time in New South Wales’ Lennox Head where they were spotted enjoying a leisurely brunch in September after a skiing trip to Thredbo.
The former Disney star has been living in Australia for over a year. In August, he reportedly cancelled a flight back to Los Angeles and had his tourist visa extended from three months to 12 months while shopping for a home in Byron Bay.
Efron’s publicist declined to comment.
