Gaming is once again at the centre of a high-profile celebrity split story with news that High School Musical star Zac Efron’s gaming addiction has landed him in the dog house.
ContractMusic reports that girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens claims that video games have ‘taken over’ the star’s life.
“Vanessa has hardly seen him,” a source claimed. “He talks more to his friends online while blasting away at aliens or whatever, than to her.
“Vanessa has even tried joining in but her boredom threshold is a lot shorter than Zac's. She's on the verge of saying ‘it's either me or the Xbox’.”
The story echoes that of Scottish tennis star Andy Murray who was unceremoniously dumped by ex-girlfriend Kim Sears last month thanks to his ‘addiction’ to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
