It made headlines recently when they were spotted on vacation together and posted about it on social media. They were kissing and looking like a couple at times, with more aloof body language at other times.
Star insiders say there’s more to the story, however. They allege that Zac is broke after having “partied through the bulk of his estimated $18 million fortune.” So he needs Michelle to act as “sugar mama.”
As such, Michelle “picked up most of the tab during their Italian getaway” earlier this month.
“Zac has been pretty broke while waiting for his share of the profits from Neighbors to come through,” the source adds. “Michelle, on the other hand, hoards her money.”
Michelle “has no qualms about shelling out the cash,” so now “her friends are worried that she’s being played.”
The source reveals, “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.”
For what it’s worth, sources tell Naughty But Nice Rob and Gossip Cop, the story is not true.
